Cynthia: I am just not a Halloween person. I get sleepy and annoyed if I have to come up with a costume.
Marcy: Welcome to my world, Cindy.
Cynthia: Yeah, you’re always sleepy and annoyed. But I’m not. Usually. It’s just that Halloween in Los Angeles is always such a big. competitive. deal. that I get defeated before I even start. It’s daunting. People go all out with their creations. And no matter where you work, you’re always required to dress up or risk getting labeled … a Party Pooper.
Marcy: You humans certainly do follow a herd mentality. You must be related to dogs. Or chickens. Why don’t you go as a chicken?
Cynthia: Usually I throw on an orange shirt, apply green eyeshadow to my eyes and nose, and call myself a pumpkin. Or an orange. Depending on the shade of orange I’m wearing that year.
Marcy: That’s pathetic, Cindy.
Cynthia: I know. So this year I am going as… you.
Marcy: As a cat?! Well, at least you’ll be on brand and on trend. Even though it’s kind of obvious. And lazy.
Cynthia (excitedly): I found some great photos and tutorials of easy to apply cat makeup. It’s going to be so simple! But – it’ll look like I made an effort! Check ’em out.

Cynthia: Here’s a look that’s a tad more complicated but still doable by Julia Graf, aka MissChievous.
Cynthia: And you have to check out adorable teen, Ms. Ellen Melon’s, cat makeup and costume tutorial. As she says – after applying the makeup – just add black clothing and some cat ears and you’re done!
Cynthia: Isn’t this the best idea ever?!
Marcy: It’s catist.
Cynthia: No it’s not.
Marcy: Yes it is.
Cynthia: No. It’s not.
Marcy: Yeah… well… if you’re going to dress as a cat for Halloween, then I’m going as a human.
Marcy: Fine. All I’ll need is a pair of eyeglasses, some skinny jeans, an iPhone for texting, and a Starbucks coffee. Now that’s a scary Halloween costume.
