Some people are just plain tired of wearing the usual scary costumes this halloween. Some have opted to be their favorite or most hated idol, like someone who is preparing to dress like Sarah Palin. Another celebrity has chosen to be Ellen Degeneres with her straight-legged pants, long sleeved upper blouse in a vest and scarf, and, of course, with the matching sneakers. If given the chance to be someone else, I'd like to be in the shoes of Sarah Palin too, he..he..he...can't think of anyone else who is getting so much attention these days. I do envy those glasses and her hair looks so good on her. I also admire her clothes.
It sounds like fun to be going to a gala party where everybody is dressed formally, as in gowns and coats but I do not know if the wearing of masks especially if it's a debut bash would not rob the party-goers the comfort of not having anything that covers the face. For one, masks can be very cumbersome especially those that do not fit well. They can make the wearer feel uncomfortable because it can be hot after a while, and also, its smell can actually suffocate the wearer. Another thing, when one starts to sweat, the make-up would most likely run and ruin the beauty of the wearer when the time to remove the mask comes. One more drawback is the unwanted appearance of gatecrashers or uninvited guests---you never can know. A masquerade party works well during halloween or maybe a JS prom for a change, but for a debut, I don't think the idea will work.
