What are the best and worst costumes you have sported for Halloween?

In some ways it seems like from a biological perspective we have a lot of phrases that remind us that our small decisions make a lifestyle. ‘You are what you eat,’ for example. And then I think conceptually sometimes we forget that.
That if I expose myself to only airbrushed fashion magazine imagery, I think what I see. My own body will start to look kind of rugged in the mirror because I’ve reset my standards of a female form. And so I think being a mindful of our intellectual appetites too.
That doesn’t mean I can never thumb through a fashion magazine, but I guess I’d like to try to consider the ideas and the art that I expose myself as part of a diet.
If you only eat garbage, if you only look at fake, then it’s going to start to inform your perception of the world around you in meaningful ways. I think sometimes we imagine we’re too smart for that. I mean ‘I watch this, I listen to this, and I read this, but it doesn’t affect me.’
But I think that we sort of flatter ourselves if we imagine that we are totally the gatekeepers of our minds and we can innoculate ourselves from the influence of what we expose ourselves to."
