An N.O.C. Halloween: Our Children’s Edition

Courtesy of Rodrigo Sanchez-Chavarria

Amongst my friends and family, it is no secret that the only holiday I care about is Halloween. No, it isn’t just because the candy is free and flowing — although this is a huge bonus. What I love the most about he holiday is that there is this unbridled demonstration of ingenuity, creativity, and imagination. People get to step a little outside of their mundane lives and step into the realm of the fantastic.

Another thing I love are the costumes. I don’t think I’m alone in this, especially amongst my fellow NOC. While many of us were too busy to dress up, we made sure that our children did.

I would like to present to you the NOC Parade of Costumes: Our Children’s Addition.

“I’m and ballerina and a zombie. And?”
“The (Minnie) Mouse ate the cheese!”
The 11th Doctor. Dapper as ever.
Hogwarts ain’t ready. #BlackGirlMagic
“I don’t cause commotions, I am one.” — Elphaba
Mulan and Ariel together again, for the first time.
“You can’t see me… I’m a ninja. I’m cute, but still a ninja.”
Los Vengadores

Even some of the NOC non-human children partook in the greatest of all holidays.

“Great googly-moogly!”

We hope you all had a wonderful and safe Halloween. Thank you for supporting The Nerds of Color. We truly appreciate it.
