Costumes: Mirrors of the Soul?

I dress up every year for the Jewish Holiday of Purim, and my costumes always reflect my personality. I’ve been a crazy cat lady, an 80’s chick, and once I dressed all in purple (my favorite color) and said I was 50 shades of grape! And I love your books!

i always dress up as something that goes with my personality, like a witch , ha ha , or lucy from the peanuts.

I think costumes let us become someone else

Costumes allow us to become something or someone we are not.

I dress up regularly at work. I have a winery in a Victorian home. You never know when I'll be decked out a a dress, crinolines, hat and gloves!

I believe that costumes can offer us a chance to try out a different personality, if desired, but it's only temporary (thank goodness, maybe?).

Love the idea is being Nancy Drew. I was a hippie one year, channeling my more free side!

Dressing up is fun and takes you out of yourself to be someone different.

I enjoy dressing up for Purim and I have always dressed up for my personality. Anne of green Gables, Annie Oakley, Esther.

I choose my costume based on how I feel for the year. One year I dressed up as a cat and the next year a dog then a witch. I also try to do something a little different than my kids.

I think dressing up in costume is being someone you aren't. Most times this is for the occasion (Halloween, various plays.) This is a very common practice in many cultures for many reasons. I personally haven't done this since I was a very young child for the Halloween evening.

I used to dress up for Halloween as a cowgirl. Since I hate horses and cows, I doubt I secretly wanted to be a cowgirl. I just had the outfit. And a wonderful purple hat!

Costumes allow us to explore other aspects of reality.

The costumes I've worn over the years have always been as a way to allow me to become, or pretend temporarily to be, someone/thing else.

I would love to be an ARC for you.

I think costumes can do either one. It depends on what you want them to do when you choose them.

I love holiday themed cozy mysteries and look forward to reading this one.

I have always dressed my kids up for halloween, but I too dressed when I took them around for trick or treat. It is true that you can act as someone else when dressed up. That led me to acting in theater groups where I could really come out of my shell! I love reading and reviewing books for authors, as right now it is my only hobby. I would LOVE to receive an ARC and review for you on both amazon and goodreads where I usually review as Merry a Vero Beach FL reviewer.

I've been an Indian maiden, a Spanish lady, a vampire. Fun stuff@@

Since children generally choose to dress up as something/someone they would like to be, ie: young girls often dress up as princesses and young boys as pirates or Star Wars/super heroes, I think maybe adults do the same. They dress up as things/people that either reflects their actual personalities or that represent what they would like to be.

Costume novels interest me.

It’s been so long since I dressed in any costume...I agree however, that changing costumes or outfits can provide confidence and try out the things you wouldn’t dare try as yourself. It’s sort of like puppets in therapy play with kids...some won’t talk at all...but once you get out the puppet..the child feels comfortable talking to anyone about anything...with outaskingleadingquestiins

I would love dressing up as up as what I would imagine. Sometimes a fictional magical creature. Sometimes as a dancer. But what I wasn’t good at in reality.

I think dressing up can give you a chance to be someone or something that you're not. It's a chance to try something new.

I look at the costumes. What I pick out depends on how I feel that day.

I love dressing up in a costume because I can become anyone or thing. I've been Dolly Parton to The Cat in the Hat to a Pumpkin. When I worked as a church secretary that had a day care, it was fun to see the kids' faces when I was dressed up. It wormed my heart.

You are a new author to me and I absolutely love Cozy Mystery’s! It would be awesome to win your first book to this series to get started. I’m a Nerd Girl (#NerdGirlVal) of Nerd Girl Official and I can post reviews there, Goodreads and Amazon.

I think people use costumes to experiment or be something completely different from who they usually are.

Dressing up in a costume is magical and fun. I would choose my costume based on a character from one of my favorite books. I love cozy romance and mysteries and thank you for the chance.

This blog, like the books and stories I write, combines mysteries, food, trivia, and a bit of humor to leaven the grim subject of crime. Sometimes random subjects intrude here .
