As I mentioned in my post on Southern in the City yesterday, I asked a handful of the most creative NYC-based Southerners I know to share their Halloween plans and ideas for this year’s festivities, as well as memories of Halloweens past. I’ll be continuing to post their responses here throughout the next few days. Here’s what one of my favorite bloggers, Hollister Hovey, had to say.
Are you going out for Halloween this year?
Yes. Probably with a bunch of friends who will be dressed as everything from a matador to an 19th century bather.
What will your costume be?
Currently, the plan is to be Rosie the Riveter — or one of the WASPS (the female fighter pilots of WWII)
Favorite costume, past or present?
I love when my sister went as Tintin.
Go-to costume when all else fails?
Reese’s peanut butter cups.
