Halloween is definitely a main event in my home country as well as in New York City. The Philippines is ripe with scary stories filled with our own mythology. I wouldn’t go into all that for now because I was never a fan of scary stories. Instead, let me share with you one my favorite Halloween costumes: The Yellow Ranger from the Power Rangers!
The Power Rangers have been one of my earliest favorite superheroes. I was particularly drawn to the Yellow Ranger because she was the only Asian amongst all the Power Rangers. I was the Yellow Ranger, while my younger sister was the Pink Ranger, and my youngest brother was the Blue Ranger (there probably wasn’t a Blue Ranger costume available so my parents got him the Black Ranger costume instead).
With my intense Juilliard schedule and work-load I haven’t had time to celebrate Halloween in New York City with full-on costume. So, I decided to share with you my favorite childhood one instead!
Have a great and spooky week!
