As a result of all the work decorating right before the Party
started, it became easier for me to just punt on a costume and
simply put mask to lead the line dances (see the Monster Mash picture above
to get an idea of my yearly 90s Halloween Party costume).
In other words the SSQQ Halloween Parties had grown so big that I
was constantly working. For example, during the 2002 Party I
noticed I had one 15 minute break and that was it from start to
finish. The rest of the time I was either in the Haunted
House, leading the Monster Mash, or doing DJ work in my
closet, so what was the point of wearing a costume since I was
usually hidden anyway??
Nevertheless just for the heck of it in 2002 I threw on a black
Scream outfit. Unused to seeing me in costume, people started to
compliment me. I was embarrassed. I accidentally threw on a
stupid black cape and it was such an improvement people commented
Maybe next year I will look for a
costume and start trying to dress up again. But
don't hold me to it.
