Some love Christmas, others New Year. Some may well have a soft spot for Thanksgiving or Diwali, depending on their country of origin. Me? I have a special place in my heart for the night on which the spirits come out Halloween. Stitched together from the seemingly incongruous traditions of Rome, Celtic Britain, the religious and the secular, it is All Hallows’ Eve which fills me with more excitement than any other night of the year. As October 31st lumbers ever closer like some kind of deranged Frankenstein’s monster, I mark off the dates on my calendar with a growing sense of anticipation.
Perhaps it’s because my mischievous side enjoys the pranks and tomfoolery; maybe it’s because I love bobbing for those apples; or maybe it’s just because I enjoy a good excuse to imbibe those aforementioned spirits. The truth though is that Halloween is the one night of the year when everyone has the chance to become someone else. It’s chance to dress up, to take on a new identity, to change your whole personality, all with the aid of a little Halloween fancy dress costumes.
The fun of dressing up is only part of it. Before the big night, I love searching for great fancy dress ideas as I manically chuckle with glee at the prospect of each incongruous outfit. Okay, perhaps not manically, but I certainly enjoy a chuckle.
This year I think I’ll go for something with a little more charisma. Perhaps I could try a Han Solo costume, or an Indiana Jones costume. Those of you who also like the idea of a Harrison Ford-themed costume could perhaps try on a Sergeant Joe Gavilan outfit for size, the character made memorable in the 2003 movie Hollywood Homicide (co-starring Josh Hartnett). What there’s no Joe Gavilan costume? Who’d have thought it?
It’s no secret however that when it comes to fancy dress, it’s the women’s costumes which are the most eye-popping. Last year my partner outdid even me as she got herself two super sexy outfits. The first was as a fabulous gangster lady, the other one has to remain completely private as she made me promise.
A woman has to make up her own mind, but I’ve already found a few fun ideas for women this year, including a ‘Fly Me Air Hostess fancy dress’ which I think my other half would simply adore. She’s always entertained notions of travelling around the world on passenger jets so this could be just the ticket. I’ve got it bookmarked so that when she asks, ‘Where can I get a great new outfit for Halloween?’ I’ll be prepared to unleash my suggestion and see how it flies against the competition of Snow White, the Queen of Hearts and Supergirl.
Looking at all these cute and flirty dresses it does make you ask the question: why should women be the only ones to wear sexy Halloween costumes? In the end I may just get that Pilot uniform and be done with. Finally, I can take on a role that I’ll truly relish. Now, if you’d like to follow me to the front of the aircraft perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of my cockpit.…
Many people think of body sculpture as an American interest. In truth, it is world wide as seen when discussing cosmetic procedures in Brazil.
