On time for Halloween, so of course this is after, Strawberry asks us a few questions about Halloween in her Meme. Oddly, for someone for whom every day can be Halloween, the actual holiday has much less of a draw than it ever used to. It doesn't help that most of my Cosplay gear is in boxes in attics still, or that I didn't have a party to go to, but I enjoy the spirit of Halloween I can find every day more than a single fleeting night.
- Did you go trick or treating as a child? Yes, and I did the whole costume thing for a very long time.
- What was the best Halloween costume you ever saw or wore yourself? Honestly, the best costumes I've ever seen have been for Cosplay, not for Halloween; the most amazing I ever saw was Payne from Final Fantasy X-2 wearing her Berserker dressphere (in X-2, abilities and outfits go together). It was her first costume ever, and it was flawless. My favorite costume ever was when I dressed up as Ozma from Oz, but everyone thought I was an Egyptian Queen; no one ever knows Ozma.
- What is your most vivid memory about Halloween? Walking around as Ozma being constantly mistaken for someone else. It was very, very sad.
- What is the scariest movie you have ever seen? I hate scary movies. I went to see Shaun of the Dead with friends and spent most of it staring at the floor. I also participated in playing the game Phantasmagoria which gets really gross toward the end, and walked away right before it got worse, but it was still really bad.
- Do you ever get nightmares after watching a scary movie? Yes, though not at night. I have what I call "daymares", which are flashes of disturbing images while I'm awake. It can be a little disruptive.
- Are you superstitious? If so, name at least one superstition of yours. I compulsively knock on wood whenever I say certain things, like "Things are going well." *knock on wood*
- What will you be doing for Halloween this year, if anything, in SL and RL? I actually did nothing. Halloween is a lot more fun when there are people around to play with.
