Let Them Eat Candy!

Let no one say that a sixteen-year-old cannot go trick-or-treating! And not many people did, most were distracted by the huge creation that was perched on my head 24/7. After nearly a decade of experience in the candy-hunting arts, teenagers have got it down to an exact science/ beautiful art form. The excited clacking of Mary Janes was followed by innocent smiles and a "I like you house/dog/kid(s)" as well as a resounding chorus of "Trick or Treat!" and the sound of VICTORY - candy in your makeshift Forever 21 bag. 

I think this was a high point in my costume-making career. As the fashionable martyr of the French Revolution, the wig proceeded to win my school's costume contest. Why is it that you get more creative on Halloween as you get older?

I was not the only one to utilize the creative juices. Here we have the mandatory Harry Potter character (Luna Lovegood), Catniss from the Hunger Games, the epitome of the Nashvillian stereotype/cow girl and hipster at its' best The Raven from Edgar Allan Poe poem of the same name.
