For my Halloween 2023 costume, I used my twisted sense of humor. I actually planned this costume for a couple of years. Read about my adventures below…
Halloween 2023: The Big Idea
So a couple of years ago, I got an idea for what could be an excellent costume. My plan was to unveil it for Halloween 2022, but I decided to postpone until next year.
I wanted a dragon. And not just any dragon. A red and black dragon. For a good reason. Really.
In case you haven’t guessed yet, there are pop culture references involved.
This one is easy. I knew that all I needed was a red shirt with black fishnet over it to give the impression of scales. So I found those two items right away.
Well, this isn’t hard. Choosing the best wings for my costume was the hardest part. There’s so many beautiful wings to choose from!
Regardless, I stuck with my red and black theme and decided to splurge a little. Is it worth it? Yes, absolutely worth every dollar.
( I would say cent, but Canada no longer makes cents…)
I kinda cheated with horns, but I don’t have any regrets. Besides, I knew what was really going to make my costume work is…
I still have the mask I found, and I’ll probably always cherish it. Finding a color-matching mask, however, turned out to be an incredible adventure.
There are plenty of decent dragon masks, regardless of cost, but so many of them look closer to a dinosaur. So I kept searching for months until I found the exact right mask.
My horns are a bit dwarfed by the mask, but I don’t care. Worth it.
And so I present to you…
