Dressing up for Halloween used to be a thing I really looked forward to. Not talking about putting on a scary spider shirt, but actually going all out in costume. Guess I began getting into it when the girls were little… so much fun to plan our costumes, whether we were going out or having our own party, or just trick or treating. 🎃
Even after my girls moved away, I was still into the Halloween spirit for many years. I enjoyed playing dress-up generally, such as when I went to a renaissance fair. I loved themed parties of any kind. But lately the thrill has gone. I’m not planning a costume for this Halloween at all… will probably just wear a pumpkin or kitty sweatshirt. 😻
Part of the reason for this change of heart is because of my annoying eye sensitivity lately. For the past couple years, I’ve had difficulty wearing eye makeup because my eyes are so dry and itchy all the time. Even when I wear a little on a special occasion, it makes the itchies worse. And yes I buy the “good” brands. It’s just better not to wear any eye makeup at all. Wearing anything dramatic to go with a costume? Forget it! Last time I did, my eyes became fiercely irritated. 👿
Besides the makeup issue, I’m just not into the idea of spending money on costumes any longer. Or having them and their accessories take up room in my dwindling storage space. Boo humbug! 👻
