TIFU by wearing a Halloween costume to school
this is a case of me being a chronic dumbass.
I thought that because it was Halloween today that other people in a normally holiday loving school would wear at least a prop or one of those bouncy antenna headbands with pumpkins or ghosts but NOPE!
NOT A SOUL.
Nobody wore or did ANYTHING to celebrate. I know it is a holiday that you eventually grow out of but since costumes are my passion I spent months on a bright orange pirate coat and made a costume to go underneath. I'm not usually the extrovert and due to a few recent unfortunate events and my shitty mental state I'm only at school like 50% of the time, and I thought "maybe this time I can have a bit of fun just this once" but fate had other plans for me on this rainy Halloween.
its safe to say I was embarrassed and felt bad and surrounded and like a freak.
if I see someone else with a costume on I might feel better but this was overkill, I'm in 11th grade and thankfully because of that I likely wont be made fun of but costuming will ALWAYS be my passion and someday I will feel okay being the only one in a crowd of people.

Edit 2: thank you all so much for telling your stories and comments, reading them I was honestly about to cry. I felt so alone today and you made me feel like I could do anything. thank you for all the love and support and there are no words to describe how much I love everyone that said something. this means so much.
TL;DR wore bright orange pirate coat I spent months on and looked like a freak in front of an entire school
