I've always had a love/hate relationship with hollyween. The years when I have a really great costume I'm totally into it, and the years when I can't think of something good, I don't even bother to go out. A few years ago (with special guest [livejournal.com profile] sui_generis) I dressed up like a zombie for Hollyween, and hey, we discovered my Stupid Human Trick: acting like an (un)dead person. I LOVE the response I get, especially from the annoying drunk girls in those awful "Sexy" costumes I hate. "Oh my GAWD! You're so SCAREEE!" they shriek, and try to totter away on too-high heels.

Now my zombie-fying is an annual occurence.
Zombie: The Beginning

Last year was my 4th time dancing in the NYC Halloween Parade, and I started working with ThrillerNYC (That's the group that does the original choreography to Michael Jackson's "Thriller", and they do it dressed like ZOMBIES, so I get to lurch and drool at people for 35 blocks, and nobody calls a policeman).

I got a uniform from the catholic school where I ran the
theatre program, because they made me crazy.
Hollyween 2008

Apparently, I did a pretty good job, because my photo got picked up by the AP
and has been reprinted a ton of times, like in last year's 11/1/08 issue of the Daily News:
this is thrillerrrr

Yesterday, I was riding the LIRR to go get my hair done, and I was paging through a left-behind AMNewYork on the seat next to me, and Hey, Look: It's the costume that won't die!
AM NY, Baby!
I never thought the day would come when I would be badly photoshopped onto low grade newsprint and be shoved into the hands of cranky commuters, but here it is.

I'm psyched to get to dress up and dance with all the Thriller zombies this year (because it's really, really fun), but now I'm kind of nervous too. Every body keeps asking me about what "awesome" costume I'm going to pull out this year. Too much pressure! I couldn't think of anything clever enough ro zombiefy, so I'm hoping to do well in execution with my "Cheerleader who fell from the top of the pyramid" outfit.
This year

Keep your fingers crossed. Happy Hollyween!
