Day 28 (Hallowe'en Costume Week!)

I love Hallowe'en. Have ever since I was a kid. Summer at the cottage I would be bugging my Mom with all my costume ideas. But I never wanted to be a clown, or ghost. I wanted to be someone from the Big (and Small) Screen. Culture Vulture. Can't help it. The next week is dedicated to what I (and maybe my husband? Pretty Please? ) would like to be for Hallowe'en.
