This year, after careful consideration, I've decided to go as Miss Havisham from Charles Dickens' Great Expectations.
While I care very little for Great Expectations as a work of fiction or Dickens, for that matter, I find Miss Havisham to be a fascinating character.
With a zeal that becomes such an ardent lover of Halloween, I took to the Internet in search of inspiration.
