I had already won Best Female, Sexiest Female, and Most Creative at the Crew Spooktacular; barring Best Male and Sexiest Male (which, while I'm technically not ineligible for, I'm not really sure I'd want to win), there was only one award left for me to strive for: Best Couple. Louis and I had talked a lot about different couples we could portray, it wasn't until we started watching our Halloween movies that the perfect inspiration came to us.
Sure, I could've thrown on some black clothes and called myself Lydia, but what's the fun in that? The giant poofy red wedding dress (Of Doom) is, I think, much more recognizable. It was just an added bonus that I had gotten married a few months before, in a relatively subdued dress; this would give me a chance to reuse my crinoline and be a big puffy walking disaster just like every other bride.
Pro-tip: it's exactly as irritating as you're imagining.
