I love Halloween but I have never dressed up as an adult because that entails having an idea that is funny or interesting or spooky and then putting that idea on my body and then asking people to look at my idea and its execution, which I am wearing on my body, and that series of events is genuinely more terrifying to me than the series of events at the end of Hereditary


@Pixley I never dressed up as a child, so now I sometimes do it but... yeah, it's a wild proposition. Normally I don't ask people to look at me, even if I try to look nice...

That said, I won the library's last in-person contest (2019) for "scariest" which is now... wild...

@Pixley (it was also a perfectly normal Halloween outfit without the hat/mask so I just wore that to work work)

@thegibson we're both big ghoul fans! You can see that they're wearing a Ghost sweatshirt... and I'm wearing a Ghost t-shirt which is slightly less viesible
