With Halloween right around the corner, I have a confession to make. I love to dress up. Give me any excuse and I’m there, whether it’s handing out candy to the neighborhood kids or acting in local theater musicals.
A couple of Saturdays ago I took part along with the rest of the HearthFire Keep board in a citywide scavenger hunt put on by CluedUpp Geogames with an Alice in Wonderland theme. Up and down the streets of downtown Denver we went, searching for clues and solving riddles. Dressed as the White Rabbit, I got lots of compliments and even had my picture taken by a sweet Down Syndrome girl. I was sore all over by the end of the day, but it was well worth it.
I suspect this penchant for dressing up may come from the same creative well as writing fiction, creating characters and then watching them play out their stories. As I write, I’m in their heads and their hearts, feeling their emotions with them. Many times they surprise me and do something I didn’t expect.
What about you? Do you like to dress up? If so, tell me all about it below!
