There are strange humans who despise the haunting holiday and the effort of dressing up, AND there are those who spend 11 months planning, just patiently waiting for October 31st of every year, when they actually leave their house for the first time since the year before.
Quick History Lesson: Long story short and simple, Halloween started as some festival that was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other areas of Europe. The people thought that the barrier between the real world (our world) and the world of the spirits became practically one in the same on this particular night.
In Junior High and High School, I did not love Halloween. A) The parties weren’t that good. B) It was public school, so everyone was super judgey and competitive about the costumes. And, C) I hadn’t really discovered how much fun this wicked holiday was.
Cut to college, where I realized what “going out” was all about. Suddenly, my social life was set on fire, and I asked myself, “What did we do before the Vodka?” Now, I’m a very responsible consumer. I’m just saying… No wonder I felt so ridiculous walking around soberly dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz in my previous years.
During these 4 precious years at University, my love for Halloween began to grow. I began with the basic-female-public-official costumes and when I got over that, I portrayed an uncanny Pocahontas. I no longer felt ridiculous. I felt… sexy???
Cut to the present, I live in Los Angeles, where entire streets are shut down throughout the city to host the Halloween festivals. Speaking of the city, it’s usually chaos the night of Halloween. People are roaming the back alleys dressed as Freddy Kruger, there are always a few dudes dressed as “Tinder” because they think that will seal the deal, and I once witnessed complete nudity as a costume. However, this night continues to spark my soul and, without fail, is much for fun than any other weekend.
To further the theory that “celebrities are just normal people,” they don’t take Halloween lightly either. It’s easy to go ALL out when you have the money to pay for prosthetics, am I right?
