Costuming Thoughts

Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite,
All are on their rounds tonight;
In the wan moon's silver ray,
Thrives their helter-skelter play.
~Joel Benton

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
~Scottish Saying

Where there is no imagination there is no horror. ~Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.

May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright
Of soft and golden hue
Pierce through the future’s veil and show
What fate now holds for you.
~Author Unknown

Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story. ~Mason Cooley

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.
~Author Unknown

There is nothing that gives more assurance than a mask. ~Colette

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be. ~Kurt Vonnegut

What a strange power there is in clothing. ~Isaac Bashevis Singer

Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly. ~Epictetus

Souls wouldn't wear suits and ties, they'd wear blue jeans and sit cross-legged with a glass of red wine. ~Carrie Latet

If I were a cat, what would make me purr? A pair of really comfortable blue jeans, and massages. ~Cinnamon Stomberger

If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater... suggest that he wear a tail. ~Fran Lebowitz

Never wear anything that panics the cat. ~P.J. O'Rourke
