Day 112: Happy Halloween!

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

Happy Halloween!!

I hope today you’re getting to enjoy the best of what this day has to offer - candy, costumes and crazy stories of ghosts and ghouls!

Truth be told, the older I get each year the fact still remains that I love Halloween the exact same.  It’s alway possessed a wonderful sense of mystery to me and who doesn’t love dressing up?  I find that putting together a costume of my own is always such a fun experience and can be quite therapeutic when you believe you can be anything you want.  I love it because it gives you a chance to express any side of you that wants or needs expressing.

I think why I love it so much is much for the same reason as why I love wearing makeup.  I came to the realization today actually when I was putting my makeup on, as I was applying my mineral foundation and blush, eye shadow and mascara.  I take so much pride in my appearance I guess and using makeup for me has always made me feel adventurous because I am basically wearing different aspects of my personality everyday.  Plus I find the process itself relaxing (except if I’m running late for work and do it in the car, on the highway…I know, shameful right…but hey we’ve all been there!)

In any case I hope that if you’re going out tonight you give yourself the time you need to make your costume just right and if you’re wearing costume makeup or putting it on your kid, or niece or nephew, little brother or sister, than you take your time and use this sppoky opportunity to express yourself.Be safe, have fun and if you dressing up like a ghostie, don’t let the rain dampen your spirits!

(I’’m sorry I couldn’t resist!)

Mwahhh Hah Hah Hah Hahhhhh
