Normally, I am not into the Goth or Horror genres by any means. However, this past Halloween, my daughter, The Heiress (to the Oki-Ronin fortune), had her first “scary” costume, as a vampire. I could not pass up the photo op (and with a nod to the old American and European Horror/Slasher films).
(Glossary of terms, for viewers outside the US and/or those without kids: A.I.S.D = Austin Independent School District, the somewhat overrated school system she is taught under. Portables = The [drafty, pest-ridden] mobile office buildings used by school systems around the country to supplement older, overcrowded schools.)
