Halloween Preview (or...Severus for the Rest of Us)
Last week I decided it was time to commit to a costume. I didn't want to think about it much, so I thought that I would be whatever person, place or thing that popped immediately in my head. For some indescernable reason, the first words that sprang to mind were "Truman Capote." I looked in my closet, and oddly, like last year when I was Ozzy Osbourne, all needed items were there--hat, scarf, jacket...easy. Here are a few pictures. I was sort of going for the In Cold Blood period.
I hadn't pulled my hair back, and when I took off my hat and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I thought, "Jesus, I look like Severus Snape." This isn't the first time I've noticed this. I have a picture of myself with my friend Chris that I scrapbooked along with some Harry Potter book release photos because of my Slytherin-esque appearance. Anyway, here is the ocular proof that I may be Professor Snape's love child...
I include a smiley one so as not to frighten away any would-be trick-or-treaters. Anyway, the end of all this is that I'm going as Severus Snape for Halloween. All I need besides my own mug is a black robe and a wand, which I also have readily available in my closet. Doesn't everyone?
