This year, I decided to take on a bit of a challenge...let me explain.
When I was a kid in the 80s, my sister and my hands-down, absolute favorite Halloween special was The Worst Witch. Precursor to Harry Potter, Miss Cackle's school for young witches bore Mildred Hubble...the worst witch. Played by a young Fairuza Balk (of The Craft & Almost Famous), Mildred is a hapless, helpless witch-in-training, who gets stuck with a little tabby cat named Tabby, can't fly a broom without crashing, fails all her spellmaking, endures endless taunts by Ethel Hallow, and saves the day, earning her a special flying lesson with The Grand Wizard (the one and only Tim Curry.)
First, let me tell you how terrifically terrible this movie really is. If you've never seen it or it has been awhile, check it out on YouTube! Sure, it's in 8 parts, but it's all there...in all its awful special effects glory.
So...back to the costume. I'm going to attempt a Mildred Hubble persona and Bubs is going as The Grand Wizard. I can't wait! Bits and pieces are already coming together...updates are soon to come :)
What about you...What's your favorite Halloween special? What's your costume this year?
