So, What Were You for Halloween?

Her dad was told to be “the guy from the ‘Roar’ video.” She got a lot of candy, obviously.

2. The best costume this year goes to my friend Leo who made a better pregnant Kim K than Kim herself:

Since my hair is already an unnatural shade of bluey-green, I went as Sailor Mercury (props to my amazing friend who helped me sew this thing, or else I would’ve been Sailor Towel Around My Waist). My partner went as the Witch King from LotR, meaning that he spent most of the night dealing with people going “CHECK IT OUT, IT’S SAURON” and bumping into stuff.
