Everyone has watched Wizard of Oz and knows how each of the main Oz characters has something they want to ask the wizard for. Dorothy wants to go home. The Scarecrow wants a brain, the Tin Man a heart, and the Lion some courage.
“We’re off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz”
I have always thought I was Dorothy; who doesn’t want to be the main character, but rewatching it a few weeks ago, I realized something. I am not Dorothy. I’m actually the Cowardly Lion. The character you like but don’t want to be. Who wants to be the one who is afraid of everything. But I am.
When I started college I knew that when I graduated I wanted to decorate my graduation cap. We weren’t allowed to decorate them for my high school graduation and I had always wanted to do something fun with it so I was excited it was an option for college. Fast forward three and a half years and when graduation became an online affair I decided I was going to decorate a cap early to take photos around campus before I went home. My cap had to be something fun and that went with the unknowns that come with 2020.
Things may be different this year but that doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun! Since this is the last Halloween of my college career my roommate and I thought we needed to bring back the duo costumes! Since everyone loved it so much two years ago when we did it.
(Head to the bottom of this post to see my costumes from the past few years)
We spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to be this year. Ever since we met when we were paired together to be roommates freshman year everyone has told us we are so similar. Twins even. Which brought about the idea that we should do an opposites duo costume this year!
Many ideas were thrown around. Many Pinterest boards were made. (Mostly on my end… I am obsessed with Pinterest) And then we settled upon it.
For the blog this week I thought it would be fun to do a challenge. Way back in my sophomore year of High School this same friend wanted to dress me for a week. (I swear it was the week I got a compliment on my outfit every single day. Since I was wearing something other than a tee, flannel, or sweatshirt with my jeans.) Fast forward about 6 years and she is now a fashion student. So I thought it would be fun to have her try and dress me for a week again!
First off, Hello October, where did you come from??? Anyone else feel this way because I am sure confused about how it has been nine full months of 2020.
Secondly, this is my 100TH Blog Post!
Thank you to everyone who has followed along with me on this journey of blogging. Now ONTO THE POST!
Today I am fiiiiinally getting around to reviewing The Princess Bride after I said I wanted to read it… during 2019. Better late than never though! I bought the book right before coming back to school this semester and finished it a few weeks ago.
If you didn’t know The Princess Bride movie was in fact a book first by the same man who wrote the screenplay William Goldman.
