Blast from Halloweens Past – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

This photo is from Halloween in the year 2000.  I was dancing with the Milwaukee Ballet, not even old enough to vote, and totally obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

My obsession started when my high school friends kept remarking over how I looked and acted somewhat similar to Alyson Hannigan’s character, Willow [read: NERD.]  I got hooked on the show and it has become something of a guilty pleasure from my past.  I think I related to Willow as the smart, awkward teen, but I also related to Buffy and the teenage sacrifices she had to make as the slayer.  I know it’s a shoddy comparison, but sometimes ballet (and all the “normal” things I had to give up in order to do it) sort of felt like slaying.  😉

I haven’t watched the show in years, but in honor of Halloween, I went on a bit of a Buffy bender!  It was like hanging out with an old friend and with all the ghouls, monsters, and of course, vampires, it’s been the perfect show to watch in honor of the season! 
Happy Halloween!
