The Costume Conundrum

Posted on October 16th, 2012 in Stories


It’s a common quandary before All Hallow’s Eve,

That effects young and old,

Pass any house and you’ll hear a scream,

“For what shall I be for Halloween?”



Sweet or scary,

Fun or flirty,

Oh, what should I choose!

Fuzzy or glittery,

Fairy or princessy,

Either way, I can’t lose.

costume found here.

Perhaps I’ll go strong,

Like Rainbow Brite,

Or Buffy the Vampire Slayer,

staking in the night.

Maybe I’ll grab some pom poms,

To cheer on trick or treaters,

 Or don a tutu and toe shoes,

And leap straight into a pumpkin patch or two.


Perhaps I should go to the pages,

Of my favorite fairy tales,

And be little red riding hood or the little mermaid,

With a glistening green tail.


Oh what to do!

Who should I be- a genie or something with wings?

A pirate or hippo queen–

The only thing I know for sure is it must be pink!

What do YOU think?

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new scary story for Halloween tomorrow!

    Heehee I’ve been a black cat for like 20 years now! This year I might be Snow White or Little Red Riding Hood. You should be a. . . butterfly. . . or maybe a dragon. . . you do make the best princess though or fairy. Weren’t you a fairy last year?

    I love your rhyme, and can’t wait to see what you chose to dress up in for Halloween! I always enjoy your style and creativity!

    I don’t get out much for Halloween. We do have a costume parade at my barn almost every year. I keep wanting to dress up Riddle as The Riddler. She already has a question mark on her head, so I could paint question marks all over her body. Then I could be Catwoman. We’d be two Batman villains together!

    You should dress up as something no one expects. You are the big girly-girl, so you should surprise everyone with something really tough and boyish or ghoulish and gross.

  22. Cakelaw Says:

    Hippo queen!

  23. Barbara Says:

    I can’t wait to see what you finally decide!

  24. My Inner CHick Says:

    xx cheerleader? NO! perhaps something a bit more intellectual. xx
