I was kind of disappointed. Not because the store didn't have a good supply of costumes, zombies and gore items but, I think it was because I was looking for a different type of Halloween. The gore and sexy costumes have their place but, not in my Halloween world.
I'm still trying to define what exactly what it is I'm looking for in Halloween. I guess I'm a vintage type of gal. I like jack o' lanterns with sneaky grins and black cats like the image below.....
Whether you like gore, sexy costumes, monsters or cute little goblins and fairy princesses knocking on your door for candy, Halloween is a state of mind. Everyone has a different idea of what it should be. Unfortunately, I can't go to these commercial Halloween stores to get my fix. For me to get a true Halloween fix I'd need to go to Salem, MA but, that's not in the cards right now. I guess I'll have to create my own Halloween state of mind, I'm not sure what I'll come up with but, I promise to share whatever discoveries I may find.
What kind of Halloween do you like?
