I love Halloween because it's a holiday with no rules. We can do what we want. What I like is to create a costume, go out in public and see what others have come up with. Halloween is a party where everyone is an artist. The atmosphere is always collaborative and spirited.
I've told you about the costumes I'm designing this year (I'm making them from scratch) and, certainly, will show you pictures. One of my readers (Cassy) who doesn't have a blog just made a suggestion I like -- for us to hold a virtual Halloween party here where everyone can show off their costumes. This will give everyone a chance to display their ingenuity. Plus, if you have a blog, we'll link to it and you'll get new viewers.
The rules are simple. Everyone is invited. I'll put the post up on Halloween so just send me a picture before that day. You can e-mail a photo (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment with a link to a photo. If you have a blog, I'll link to it next to your picture.
Join the party!
P.S., For those of you whose pictures won't be ready until after Halloween, no problem -- send them to me whenever they're available and I'll add them to the post upon receipt.
