26 Outstanding Halloween Costume Ideas From Dragon Con 2013
I know you've already started thinking about your costume for Halloween. You and your friends have had impromptu discussions about whether you'll be doing a group thing, or if you'll each fly solo. This is because, as a culture, we don't believe in patience.

We want a universal level of togetherness, where we’re comfortable with everyone. We’re in rhythm, part of a movement a movement to escape. We wave goodbye. Ultimately, we just want to be happy..."
This is why Halloween is the best holiday ever. Costumes and shenanigans are the release valve to the boiler rooms of employment and polite society we strive to succeed in.
