We're midway through October - it's time to start thinking about Halloween. I'm going as a devil this year. Of all my costumes (and I have a strict "no repeat" rule), I've never been a devil. I had half the costume at home - and I made the other half. I didn't feel like it was responsible to buy something real expensive this year.
I spend a lot of time thinking about Halloween. It's my favorite holiday. I mean, it makes sense. Halloween is, after all, Metal. You get to dress up as something scary. You go to parties. You gorge on chocolate.
I tried to think of a Glam costume, but it's harder for a woman. I did toy with the idea of making my husband Slash - and I would be Axl, but I just didn't have the kilt! I thought about Lita Ford...but I don't think anyone would get it these days.
To a large extent, I think the 80s are back in fashion. When I was browsing at a costume shop I saw an entire section dedicated to the 80s. There was a Madonna ("Like a Virgin" era) costume, a Michael Jackson (one glove era) costume and Metal rocker dude costume. The Metal costume featured black and white zebra pants! I did suggest to my husband that he get that costume so we could go as David Coverdale and Tawny Kitaen. Perhaps someday.
Do you have any good Glam costume ideas?
