Reine #27: What Your Halloween Costume Says About You

Against a peach background, a cartoon description of nine different Halloween costumes and what they say about you: Werewolf (troublemaker, not the designate driver), Witch (practical, this isn't really a costume for you), Vampire (oblivious top, leaves party early to another party), Vampire Hunter (long suffering, designated driver), Superhero (mask under mask, handing out candy), Ghost (futch, TikTok Micro Celeb) A Skeleton (Nerd, You're getting body paint on everything and everyone), Cowboy (horse girl, this also isn't a costume for you), Straight Couple (it's camp, you're so funny actually)

  1. Hah, the witch is spot on. It’s not a costume for me, not because I identify as a witch but because I have a closet full of black clothes. More than 25 years ago I made myself a kick ass witches hat out of black silk and chiffon with the idea that I could be a different kind of witch every year and you know what? I was right!
