Todays daily prompt is called Masks Off and it asks;
We’re less than a week away from Halloween! If you had to design a costume that channeled your true, innermost self, what would that costume look like? Would you dare to wear it?
A costume that channels my inner self hmm?
I’ve never seen the point in spending a lot of money on a costume you are only going to wear once personally and over here it’s not really a big thing. Plus I’d rather spend my money on fireworks for Guy Fawkes night.
The perfect costume for me then would be simple, cost effective, and practical while showing off the true nature of humanity.
I’ve got it, a little sticker that says “The Devil” on it. Well why would the devil get all dressed up? No he would probably wear some smart casual gear so as not to draw attention on a night out. Makes it easier to cause mischief that way, everyone would be too busy looking for a big red guy with hoofs.
As for whether I would dare wear it? Damn right I would, and I have. I alternate each year between being God and the Devil. Both just require a little sticker with the word written on. See simple, cost effective, and practical. In fact the last few years I didn’t even pay for the sticker and I borrowed a pen, thats a free costume.
Points for anyone who can guess where I got the idea for such a costume from.
