On Hallowe'en Costumes

I haven't done much online stuff because I've spent a ridiculous amount of time getting together an awful costume for hallowe'en. A friend and I are going as Homestuck Trolls -- no, not telling which ones. And we're doing everything from scratch, which means awful paper maché horns, awful shirts with awful painted-on symbols, and... well, everything else awful.

I've only made a costume myself once. I was 16, and I dressed up as a Red-robed wizard. I sewed it together all by myself, all quite poorly because I didn't understand seams. I recall hanging out in a park and suggesting that we should be careful -- this was where older kids hung out. I was informed that we were the older kids.

I don't even remember what I made the costume for -- we never went anywhere.
