Halloween is a great time of the year. The weather, decorations, haunted attractions, tv specials, parties, trick or treat, the list goes on and on. Something that seems a little repetitious, though, is the theme of costumes. For example:

Person 1: "What are you going to dress up as for the party?"
Person 2: "I don't know, I'm thinking about a vampire maybe."

Vampires, mummies, aliens, zombies, pirates, and countless movie characters. It just gets boring every now and then, you know? I would like to see costumes for all ages move in a new direction. Unashamed to admit my fascination with Norse mythology, I think it's safe to say it will be the main focus.

What do I have in mind you ask? TROLLS! No, not those jerks on your favorite internet forum ruining discussions.

No, not those kind of trolls, either. Although they might make an interesting costume choice as well.

I'm talking about the wretched beasts hell-bent on killing everything and stealing what they want from whomever they want. These kinds of trolls:

How would you feel showing up to a party or someone's front door dressed as something original and exciting for once? It'd be crucial to get it looking right and taking tons of time making it look like an authentic troll, but I believe that it'd be worth the work. Just an idea for anyone who thinks costumes are getting boring these days.
