Halloween Costmes Are Not What They Used to Be

October 29, 2007

My girlfriend and I decided to be vampires this Halloween. We got all the right things to make great costumes. Some fake teeth, make up kit, black clothes and most importantly fake blood. It took us a solid hour to get ready, but it was well worth it. we looked good. Just check out this picture below. However, going out made me realize that the holiday once known for spookiness and celebrating the dead has been almost wiped out.Halloween Vampires Pictures

We entered the party feeling a little out of place. Was it that we were not as drunk as everyone else? Maybe an odd stain on my clothes under the black light? Nope, it was the fact that we were the only ones actually dressed scary.

Don’t get me wrong I love it when girls use the holiday as an excuse to dress like 2 dollar whores, but now they aren’t even trying to look scary. Rainbow bright, what hell is that all about? Don’t mix my childhood memories with your slutty ways. Oh your a flight attendant… what airline are you with because I have never see anyone serve me peanuts with their ass hanging out.

As bad as the girls are, the guys have also let me down. Almost every guy was a character from a movie, show or video game. And I don’t mean a character from a scary movie. By my count there were 3 Mario Brothers and 5 Ninja Turtles at this one party. Worse than being characters, some people were just straight up objects. A Wheaties Box and a Taco just don’t even make sense to me.

I miss the creepiness of Halloween. As a kid I remember getting in with my buddies in the back of my friends fathers truck and driving around neighborhoods to collect candy. Seeing creepy things on your trek, but not phased because the sweet rewards of candy made it all worth it. Every time somehow my friends dad would drive us through the cometary where he would tell us spooky stories and I swear the other parents would hide behind the tomb stones making noise in white sheets (or at least thats what I tell myself, since some things I saw do not make sense).

Halloween sucks now and its a shame that even little kids lost all imagination. I just went to the zoo during Halloween Weekend and I swear if I see another SpiderMan kid I will punt him into the Gorilla Yard.

Theres something not right about going to a Halloween Party and feeling out of place dressed as a Vampire, while across the room a Wheaties Box is dancing with a French Maid.  I don’t know maybe its just me, but I want Halloween to be spooky and scary again.
