I had an awesome Halloween! It was my last Halloween as a student at West Chester University and my friends made it extra special. ^_^ I had my alarm set for 4am, but I was up at 3am (probably from excitement because I'm like a little kid and Halloween still excites me). I think I texted Steven that I was up super early, but was just going to lie in bed. I could have done the elaborate makeup from Saturday, but I thought "Nah, I'll just go classic Mono." My alarm went off at 4am and I got out of bed. I did my routine backwards and brushed my teeth first. Then I went to my room and did the makeup (thanks for your help again, Steven!). The professional kit worked MUCH better. It was the same price as the kit I had on Saturday, I'm just surprised I didn't find the professional one earlier. Mimi (my cat) watched me as I got Jugglo-ed up (but then fell asleep). :D This makeup, since it was simple, took a half an hour. I had a full 45 minutes to watch TV this morning.
When I got onto the 99 (that's the bus I take to the mall to catch the 92 to West Chester), the bus driver just chuckled and I said, "Happy Halloween!" He replied with a big smile, "You're my first trick-or-treater!" He was so nice. It's a five minute ride to the mall and when I hopped off of the 99, some guy waiting for it saw me and said, "HOLY SHIT!" The reaction just made me laugh. The people on the 92 were awesome. Nick, one of the older workers who rides, absolutely loved it and showed me pictures of his grandchildren. I showed him the pictures from Saturday and he was amazed at the "Down With Us" Mono look. Then another young girl who works at Immaculata and one of my buddies from the 104 got on and loved it. The girl said, "Man, I should have worn my costume!" She showed me what she was on Saturday. Her costume was awesome. :) The guy (I think his name is Chris... I took the 104 at 5:15am... I was half asleep when I rode that bus) said he brought his costume to wear to work, but he wasn't sure how his boss was going to react. He said they were having a Halloween party after work. It was a pleasant ride. ^_^
Brittany and Caeli, my coworkers at the office, loved my costume. Brittany took a few photos and I had one with Caeli too. Adel, Donna and Darlene LOVED Mono. Adel just laughed, Donna said I looked cute and Darlene said I pulled off the look very well. :D My creative writing professor just laughed, he asked me about Monoxide and Twiztid, Andrew was the only one in the class to comment (and say, "Awesome! Looking good!"), but Patrick did say, "oh my God!" I did get stares though. The professor who teaches in the classroom before my class just laughed and said, "Happy Halloween!" I told him the reaction from the guy getting on the 99 and he said, "Yep, it is intimidating, but I know you're a nice girl. Happy Halloween!" I scared a girl in the bathroom, but then she later laughed and said, "Good costume."
I met Christina and Louis for pictures and lunch. We took some pictures in town, in front of the court house. It was a lot of fun, especially with Christina and I with the gang signs, me with the wicked sign and Louis reenacting the Crow. We went to lunch at Peace a Pizza and just caught up. When we were walking out of Peace of Pizza, I saw a guy with a pumpkin head. I said to Christina and Louis, "OH MY GOD! I MUST GET A PICTURE WITH HIM!" I ran across the street, I was hyper, and said, "I LOVE YOUR COSTUME! Would you mind getting a picture?" His friend took like 5 pictures, then Louis and Christina hopped in for a few. I think he was supposed to be the Headless Horseman? Anyway, it was so nice catching up with Louis and Christina. It's hard to believe that I graduate in 6 weeks. I'm glad I took the hour off of work to spend some time with them. :)
After work I went to get my half off frozen yogurt at Kiwi and everyone loved Monoxide. I then went to Dia Doce and the guy in there said, "Wow, look at you! What are you supposed to be?" I replied, "Monoxide from Twiztid." "Ah, the guys under Insane Clown Posse!" He laughed. The owner said, "Insane what?" He explained it to her and then said, "I have some ICP in my truck, I'll let you listen!" She replied, "I probably won't like it." We all laughed. I got a free cupcake. ^_^ I only had to buy a coffee (I needed it).
I arrived home at 6:05. We didn't have many trick-or-treaters this year, but the ones that did come were AWESOME! My baby cousin (okay, maybe not a baby since he's 16) stopped by with a group of friends. Their costumes ROCKED. One was Obama, one was the government shutdown and then a bunch of others. I probably sounded like the crazy lady, but I said, "Can I get pictures with you all?! You all have AWESOME costumes!" They laughed and agreed. I know Jason (my cousin) doesn't like pictures too much and he wasn't really dressed, so I put him in charge of the camera.
"Due to the government shutdown, this costume has lost its funding. We are sorry for any inconvenience." Epic costume of the year (besides mine and the other Juggalo/Juggalette costumes )! "
Just an awesome Halloween/Hallowicked! Great day on my favorite holiday! ^_^ I hope y'all, dear readers, had a wonderful Halloween as well. As I explained to Jason, I made the album public (for now) so his friends could see the pictures and tag themselves if they wanted to. So, enjoy the album while it's still public!
