I will announce winner here and on my Facebook page on November 1st (you got time, get in your costume, take that pic and get it on here)

First…my version of ‘zombie’. There’s no flesh eating. I’m more of the candy-eating kind of zombie. I don’t follow the shows or movies about them, so I certainly don’t know the proper zombie etiquette for a costume or behaviors…so I make up my own.

I’ve been many things for Halloween…a cat, a belly-dancer, batgirl, a devil…but almost all the costumes available in the stores-—oh no, shut-it now cause I’m so not sewing—seemed to have the same theme.

Ho-bag-skin-tight-freeze-your-can-off-minimal clothing with no room to expand for candy.

 While if you’re a zombie…

  • It’s the only time a bad hair day is a good thing cause it’s the look you’re going for
  • If your clothes rip or buttons pop from your candy over indulgence- it just looks like part of the costume
  • Forgo the napkin or bib during your candy gorging- zombies are messy
  • Less trick or treaters to eat your candy—you know you bought what you like, It’s okay to admit it here, you’re among friends— some kids are afraid of the zombie handing it out                            (even when I told them we were nice zombies…still tears and terror…)
  • An excuse to glare at everyone you don’t like or threaten to kill them…just playing the part
  • The ability to draw all over your face with lipstick and eyeliner and people won’t think you slept with it on
  • Introverts rejoice!!! A valid reason not to talk to anyone (insert glare here)… grunt or growl if you must to discourage further attempts at conversation
  • No need for stilettos and/or fishnet, heck you could go barefoot with sweatpants if you wantOh, you had me at sweatpants


What was your favorite Halloween costume or what do you plan to be this year? Not dressing up? Come on! If you read paranormal, you know this is the best time of the year!

Pick up my paranormal novella, That Magic Moment, to help you get into the spirit- sorry no zombies, just witches.

 P.S. you can use the gift card to buy your own candy if you want…cause I’m not sharing my stuff…just sayin’

Wait! Don’t go yet…I did tell you about the prizes, didn’t I?

    You make a great Zombie. That’s one I’ve never been… I’ve been a witch (big surprise), Gretel, Alice in Wonderland ( a skimpy ho-type version) tee hee hee and many more. 🙂
