I'm typing this from the library at my university fully decked out as a pirate demon, and it's still three days before Halloween. My excuse is that the Halloween party at the school where I work is tonight, and it's just "easier" for me to put on the costume in the morning and wear it all day than worry about carting all the little fiddly bits to work and putting it on there, wasting time when I could be working, but in truth I just love dressing up. Once, when a trip to the Texas Renaissance Festival was canceled because of rain, a bunch of friends and I all went to the mall, still in our costumes, and it was a blast. People thought there was some sort of event or show going on. Today I've gotten some weird looks and some laughs, as well as a couple big grins and "wow, you look awesome!"s, which I guess is pretty cool. I pretend to be really shy but I do like to get attention sometimes. ;)
So what about you guys, fellow dorks?
