Every year someone asks me what I'm going to be for Halloween.

And before I can come up with a witty, totally topical, totally trendy pop culture response they cut me off with their own suggestions. It usually goes like this:

Everyone: "Hey Nikki, what are you going to be for Halloween?"
Me: "I was thinking of going as..."
Everyone: "You know who you should be, you should be Mufasa. You already have the hair!"
Or insert some celebrity with an afro or curly hair (i.e. Beyonce, Diana, Michael), a tree, a mop, Sideshow Bob, Chewbacca, or, and I'm not kidding this was an actual suggestion, a hair ball. A hair ball? Really? Now, I'll admit I'm usually pretty cheap and pretty lazy, so I've definitely used my hair as a starting point. While it's been fun becoming most of these characters in my past, I'm getting a little restless. Halloween is about transformation. And candy. But mainly transformation. So this year, I'm nixing my usual go to's for Halloween and going as something or someone different.

You won't catch me being ANY of these this year.

Bye Felicia

Scary Spice

Diana Ross... Erykah Badu... Solange

You can go ahead and add Crazy Eyes, Pam Grier, and "Disco Diva" to the list while you're at it.
