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.

Some people prefer not to even set foot in a Halloween store before the leaves change.

Meanwhile the rest of us are like,

Tumblr

And this voice-over for a video of Dragon Con 2013--the best costume party ever (video at end of post) , explains exactly why:

"Present is gone. Fantasy is a part of reality when we take the brakes off. We forget all the pain and the hurt in life... we want to go somewhere else. We’re not threatened by people anymore. All our insecurities have evaporated. We're in the clouds now; we're wide open. We're spacemen orbiting the earth. the world looks beautiful from here, man.

We're nympholeptics, desiring for the unobtainable. We risk sanity for moments of temporary enlightenment. So many ideas, so little memory. The last thought killed by anticipation of the next. We embrace an overwhelming feeling of love. We flow in unison we’re together.  I wish this was real.

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.

To make this year's Hallow's Eve count, you might want to go as...

1. An illuminated Spartan.

2. A member of the Justice League

 3. A startled Marty McFly, because when isn't he?

4. Sesame Street if Sesame Street was conquered by The Empire. 

WORLDS COLLIDING.
