Halloween Dress Up
by Jackie Morse Kessler
Halloween, oh Halloween. You’d think a writer would love Halloween, but it’s actually stressful for me. I never know what to dress up as. We have friends who do costume parties, so going as an author just doesn’t work. They actually want, you know, costumes. And so, creativity! Who would I dress up as for Halloween?
A few years ago, my husband and I decided to go as The Doctor and River Song. These days, there are more Doctor Who costume options. But back then? Not so much. We tried four different costume shops, to no avail.
Finally, we went to a store that specialized in costumes for local theater troupes. My husband found a pinstriped suit, a tan overcoat, and a wig that kinda sorta worked. He already had the right sneakers and the sonic screwdriver.
Me, I rented a set of Army fatigues, bought trick handcuffs, and found a curly wig that was the absolute wrong color (platinum blond). Also bought colored hairspray to turn the wig a more brassy color.
(Yeah, I know, technically, Loving Husband should have gone as Eleven, not Ten, but we both prefer David Tennant’s run over Matt Smith’s. And we made it work because of wibbly wobbly timey wimey. So there.)
No one at the party knew who we were supposed to be.
Last year, I was a vampirate.
You don’t even want to know how long it took me to brush out that wig.
This year, my husband and I agreed to go as Jack and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. (Cheap wig and all!) Had to add the gloves because of my Raynaud’s. But they’re unraveling, so I thought they were appropriate.
Maybe I should start thinking about next year’s costume. Hmm. Who to be?
Who are you dressing up as for Halloween?

About this Book:
This richly-imagined universe from an acclaimed fixture of YA storytelling introduces a the young witch Bromwyn, a strong heroine who wields great power. Five years ago, Bromwyn refused a gift from the powerful fairy king. Tonight, on Midsummer, that decision comes back to haunt her. When her best friend Rusty picks the wrong pocket, he and Bromwyn are all that stand between their village and the rampaging fairies who have pushed through the World Door. If they cannot outwit the fairy king and queen before the World Door closes at sunrise, the friends will lose everything–their village, Bromwyn’s magic, and Rusty’s life.
