Disadvantages: nothing! unless you get flu!
Halloween is my favorite day of the year. I really think I enjoy it more than Christmas.
This is mainly for the reason you'd probably expect - I love dressing up. The majority of my friends are artists, photographers and models (not professional lah dee dah ones though!) and we all enjoy dabbling with a bit of clothes making and experimenting with makeup. So Halloween gives us a chance to have a group project, sewing and shopping for unusual bits and bobs for a month beforehand.
This year I was meant to be dressing as a peacock. I spent ages (and lots of money) on making a full tail of feathers and perfecting the hair cut on a peacock blue wig. I bought imported peacock feather eyelashes from Japan.
And then I got flu! And all Halloween i was throwing up, dressed in my pyjamas, with a nice sheen of sweat across my face and felt so rotten i couldn't even use my horrid appearance to my advantage and go as a zombie.
I was very disappointed. I was ill on christmas 2007 and think i am perhaps cursed for holidays from now on.
But at least a peacock is not exactly a ghoulish costume and can be used at the next all purpose fanct dress party....
