I’ve been told that most girls from childhood spend their days dreaming about their wedding and proposals. Frankly, I think that’s crap. If you count my idea that getting married by a young Elvis (no fat Elvis for me) in a crappy chapel in Vegas as childhood-dreaming of weddings/marraige/etc, I’ve spent a grand total of maybe forty-five minutes of my life fawning over the affair.
Still, when I came across this guy’s reenactment of Pride and Prejudice’s proposal scene, I was impressed and a bit confused. Impressed because this clearly took ALOT of work. And confused, because (and I’m assuming the proposal was real and the dude wasn’t just re-enacting the scene for larks) even though I really love Pride and Prejudice, I wouldn’t want to borrow the moment from them for my own engagement!
So what do you guys think, is this an awesome idea? Or not?

Now on to the fun things, Happy Halloween! This picture has been floating around the internet for a couple days, and I think it’s one of the most creative mixed idea costumes. I know a ton of people hate mixing genres for costumes, but I figure there is only one day a year where it is socially acceptable to dress up, so might as well go all out.
I love mixing ideas, though mine usually end up as a zombie cheerleader or dead Axl Rose…..really I just pick something I want to dress up as and then zombify it. What did you dress up for this Halloween?
Also NPR had a couple of fun Halloween links over the past couple days:
A discourse on the movie “Hocus Pocus,” admit it the ending made you tear up.
Blame the LARPer in me, but I am a huge Halloween nerd. Usually I manage to stretch the day out to a week and average 2-3 costumes per year. This year I have two of my costumes set (Boo Berry and Duela Dent) but I’ve also stumbled upon some great literary costumes and thought that I would share them with you.

Nothing screams also parent like dressing your child up like a literary figure! Barnes n Nobles recently suggested 16 different book inspired costumes. Some, I’ll admit were a bit of a stretch but others were so cute. My favorites:
I won’t lie. Most of my teenage Halloween costumes involved the dead genre, dead zombies, dead prom queen, dead….well you get the point. Never, did I even think to emulate some of my favorite literary characters. But teens of today, need not fear, foreveryoungadult has come up with a great list of costume ideas! I might even steal a few of the ideas myself!
