I share them as evidence of my theory that Halloween is really the most hit or miss of all of the holidays. Worse, I'd argue than New Year's Eve even, which people are always saying "lets them down."
I know of one person who is consistently a Hallowinner. He is pictured below as Little Miss Sunshine to my meager manifestation of MySpace. And he has also pulled off Janet Reno, a blue-haired plastic Troll, and a Wheaties Box in the past. He's tireless in his thoughtfulness as the holiday approaches, and he honestly hits it out of the park EVERY October.
However, I really think he's the rarity. Because for everyone else, it's win some, lose some. Cases in point:
2010 = WIN: Snooki as in "wanna smush mush?"
2009 = LOSE: some miserable sort of goth chick aka I was at war with the bugs
2008 = WIN: Buzzing around Boston as a Busty Bee
2007 = LOSE: Helpless Mess of a MySpace Page
2006 = WIN: Barbie - life in plastic, it's fantastic
And there you have it. Q.E.D. And moreover, my reasoning for sitting this year's festivities out. I hate losing.
