Reenactors & Halloween
After yesterday’s seriousness, I feel that there’s a need for some more lighthearted content on here.
In the days leading up to Halloween earlier this week, I saw several reenactors post Facebook statuses about how fun and/or awkward it can be to be a reenactor on Halloween. On the plus side, we have closets full of some of the best “costumes” that money can buy. On the other hand, most of us are friends with other reenactors, and it’s generally a faux pas to wear one of your impressions as an easy Halloween costume.
So I ask you: what do you think? Do you make use of your reenacting gear for Halloween or do you generally frown upon that sort of thing?
