Halloween

We're all experiencing pandemic fatigue. Tired of restrictions, we're blue. We need something POSITIVE to enjoy and look forward to.

Halloween! The ultimate holiday where there are no limitations except your imagination. Even if you don't want to venture out into public, you can still create a fun costume and share it with your friends. I plan to do that.

After being gob-smacked early this year (before the virus hit) by the character of Harley Quinn, as magnificently portrayed by Margot Robbie, in the hit-film "Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey," I'm choosing her as my costume. I'm assembling clothes and accessories, most of which I already own given my penchant for extreme fashion.

Does anyone have a big gold necklace that says "Puddin"?

I hope you'll create your own costume and share it with us.

    I hope you have fun :-)

  3. I LOVED Margo Robie as Harley Quin in Birds of Prey - that was a solid movie! If you are a Harley fan, you need to watch the animated series (there are only 2 seasons, but it's been renewed) of Harley Quin, with Katie Cuoco as Harley. It's a wonderful exploration of her emotional growth as she separates her identity from the Joker, and of her developing friendship (and more?) with Poison Ivy. It's very foul-mouthed and violent, but insanely funny (Clayface and Bane are my two favourite side characters). Well worth seeking out!

    I will probably wear a costume to work on the Friday before Hallowe'en, but there's not much I can do in the office this year. No parties, no Red Shirt group. Aw...

    I have a feeling I'll be working on Halloween, which means I'll miss seeing my nephew :(

  8. P.S. Re your Puddin necklace- could you not print out some letters and draw around them on cardboard and cut them out and colour them in gold or use gold mirror card on top or something?x

  9. Three huge cheers for dressing up and keeping the spirit of Halloween going every bit as strong as ever. I'll be doing the same as well - extra grateful that, as luck would have it, I actually found my costume for 2020 in October of last year. I knew the moment I laid eyes on it, this was the (next) one for me and can scarcely wait All Hallows' Eve to sport it (as usual, I'm keeping the dets on the downlow until the big day).

    You're going to rock Harley's style, Ally!
