First up, Liliana from Jessica Fortunato's The Sin Collector series reveals her costume this year:
Our first and only Halloween in Maine Julia had lured me into taking her trick-or treating. I had spent an hour expertly applying Zombie makeup to every inch of her exposed skin. Thank the Gods for online makeup tutorials because she looked amazing. I could hear Olexander in the living room with Julia rattling off arcane Samhain knowledge, and I could feel her eyes rolling. Finally, I put on the faux black rimmed glasses and went downstairs. Olexander and Julia’s faces crinkled in confusion as they took in my modest clothing, flat Mary Janes, neatly straightened and tightly pulled up hair. In my hands, I held a legal pad and a calculator. Olexander, never one to miss a beat, interjected what a lovely costume I’d made for myself. Julia no longer being able to hold in her thoughts let out a puff of air and an exasperated, “I don’t get it.”
“Don’t you see my legal pad and calculator? I’m a debt collector. Get it? Usually I’m a SIN Collector?”
I smiled widely, I’d been so clever.
Olexander couldn’t stop laughing long enough to make words. Julia shook her head as if she could not fit my answer inside her brain.
“It’s too late to help you now Lily.” Julia stood up patting my arm reassuringly. “Next year I’ll go to the costume shop with you.”
