Halloween Countdown

Only 62 days to go! Look, I even have a countdown:

I'm actually a little late this year in picking out what I want to be for Halloween. Yes, I know I'm almost 23 years old, but Halloween is still my favorite holiday next to Christmas, and if you've been paying any attention at all to this blog, you already know that I love to dress up. I thought about wearing my Tudor gown, painting my face white and making use of some fake blood, and going as Anne Boleyn post-beheading, but that means I don't get to sew something new!

That's where you come in, dear readers. If you have a costume suggestion you think I would like, please leave it in the comment/reply section of this post. I'd love to do:

-Something historical (though not Renaissance; I've had enough of that for a while)
-Something from a book or movie I like (though not Jane Austen; I was Elizabeth Bennett last year)
-Something fantastic, i.e. not of this world: mermaid, fairy, etc.

Be specific! Not just "18th-century French noblewoman" but "Marie Antoinette." If all else fails, I might work on a spiffy steampunk costume, but we'll see.

So, any thoughts?

I love Halloween too! As a teen, I kept trick-or-treating until I was at least 13 or 15. I remember the last year I was really embarassed that I was taller than everyone else and the height factor really made the final choice in retiring my costumes. This year however I am hoping to attend some grown up halloween parties and I'm very excited to pass out candy to little kids!!

I think you should go for something out of this world! It's Halloween and the one day of the year where people love to dress up in crazy outfits~~!

How about Lady Godiva? That's historical - Oh, you wanted something to sew....

I definitely think you should do something Steampunk! That's what Garrett and I are going to be this year. How fun!

How about the character that Keira Knightley is playing in her latest movie, The Duchess? (Sorry, the duchess' name escapes me at the moment...)

Wait, it's Lady Georgiana Spencer...
