Howdy, friends.

Welcome back to another installment of “The Terror Dome: What’s Happening Inside Maddie’s Head?”

 Spoiler alert: Not much.

Anywho, I’ve decided to shake things up a bit this week. I know you’re all searching for that perfect Halloween costume. Well, look no further. I will tell you the costume you are destined to wear.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 23)

You will be a yam, Libra. A big, juicy yam.

Scorpio (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22)

The stars are telling me you must go as a succulent this Halloween, Scorpio. Really, any variety of pointless plant will do.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21)

Good news, Sagittarius. You’re destined to dress as my betta fish, Flare Gun. (Yes, I really named him Flare Gun.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

This is a fun one, Capricorn: You’re going to spend Halloween dressed as the next person who says “Spooky Season” to you. 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Yesterday at Halloween Express I saw a literal toilet paper roll costume. So you’ll go as that.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You are going to spend this Halloween dressed as my boyfriend’s African dwarf frog, Dumpster. (Fun fact: I named Dumpster, too.)

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Get ready for this one, Aries. The stars are telling me you must dress as Chancellor James C. Schmidt for Halloween. You’re welcome.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Look around you, Taurus. The first blue inanimate object you see will be your costume inspiration this year.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

You’ll go as nothing and you’ll like it.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

This Halloween you’ll dress as the most mythical creature of them all: A well-rounded, mentally stable, adult student free of debt. 

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Leo, you must dress as Blu the Blugold for Halloween. Bonus points if you eat any first-years on All Hallows Eve.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You get what is perhaps the most exciting costume of all, Virgo. You’re dressing up as President Donald Trump’s toupée this year. 

I hope you all like your costumes. I put about 10% effort into conjuring up these beautiful mental images of my dream Halloween, so don’t disappoint.
