Do you like to wear special costumes?
Yes, I do but of course not on ordinary days. It would be silly (foolish ) if I wore a special costume without any occasion or event. I usually wear a costume during the Halloween season because I attend some Halloween parties. It’s the best time to showcase (display) my creativity by wearing a costume.
Not at all. I find it bothersome (annoying) and that’s the reason why I always miss attending Halloween parties or any parties or events that require people to wear some sort (type) of costume. I dunno, I just don’t like the idea of wearing special costumes.
Did you try any special costumes when you were young?
Definitely, especially in schools. In this country, all schools celebrate the United Nations month every October, and students are required to wear a special costume of a country that represents the country’s culture or identity. So, when I was a student, I wore several costumes from countries like Japan, China, and some Western countries. That was incredibly (extremely ) fun!
Yes, when I was a kid I was fond of wearing some special costumes like those costumes from Disney characters and Marvel superheroes. As you know, children love those stuff (things ), I admit I did enjoy wearing some of those costumes back in the day (in the past ). However, when I became a teenager, I started to lose interest in any kind of special costume because like I said, wearing one is just a pain in the neck (something or someone that is annoying).
When was the last time you wore special costumes?
Let me recall, oh well, that was before the pandemic. I attended a Hawaiian-themed birthday party for my closest friend. I wore a polo with huge floral prints, khaki shorts, and a garland (a wreath of flowers or leaves worn on the head or around one’s neck) around my neck. I was glad that I really attended that party because, after that, the news about the pandemic broke. That was the last social gathering I was able to attend without any worries.
That was a long time ago when I celebrated my 10th birthday. I put on a Spiderman costume because at that time I was crazy about (to be very interested) Spiderman. I imagined myself being a superhero after being heavily influenced by reading Marvel comics. Remembering those days now makes me miss my childhood.
Do you ever buy special costumes?
Rarely. I usually create my own costume if I attend a Halloween party or any other event because I want to express my own creativity. However, if I’m under a time constraint (not having a lot of time to do something ), I’m left with no choice (to make it necessary for someone to do something ) but to buy a special costume.
It’s been more than ten years now since the last time I wore a special costume, so I can say that never in my life have I bought a costume. Although I wore some special costumes when I was little, it was my parents’ money that was spent on those costumes. I’ve never had any experience spending my own money on costumes.
