With Halloween just a week away, we couldn't help but ask the Inkspell authors about their favorite Halloween costumes. We want the all the dirt...why is it their favorite costume and even a photo if we could "dig" one up!
Aubrie Dionne:Growing up, I was a princess more often than not for Halloween. I loved being a princess. I used to use old ballet outfits and old curtains, and my mom would sew the gowns. It was fabulous! Recently, I dressed as Arwen from Lord of the Rings, which is also kinda princessy. BUT, this year what I really want to go as is a member of the Prometheus crew. I want a blue and orange space suit and a globe helmet so bad. I searched everywhere for the costume and couldn't find it. If I go as a Prometheus crew member, then I'm on my own to make it myself!
I don't have a particularly favourite Halloween costume. However I have a tendency to dress as a witch or a fairy cause they are the easier ones to dress up as. Last year I sprayed my hair pink which was pretty cool...in fact everyone told me I should keep it pink which was a slightly worrying seeing as my natural hair colour is black and I didn't think it would suit me...haha. This year I am going as a witch, once again, but I found this really cool hat with a pink sparkly spiderweb printed on it and I love me some pink ;) x
Lisa Voisin:I've loved Halloween all my life. I was one of those kids whose mother sewed all her clothes. While it was awkward at times being 'different', Halloween was the big payoff. My mom would sew my costumes and she always did an amazing job. My favorite from childhood was the Maid Marian costume she made for me. It was loosely based on the Disney cartoon character, so it was a light purple gown with one of those pointed medieval hats, complete with a long train of fabric behind it. At the time, it was magical!
I've always loved dressing up at Halloween (even as an adult) so over the years, I've worn many costumes--from vampires and witches to gods (Krishna) and goddesses. This year, I'm going to a party dressed as Wonder Woman. All I can say is "Wish me luck!"
Doesn't all this talk of costumes make you want to find an old ratty sheet? Be creative this year and have a Spooktacular Halloween!
