I don’t know when I will be posting this but this story happened on the night of Wednesday 10/26/16, if any of y’all were wondering.
Okay and now for the story.
I was going to Youth Group at my church like every other Wednesday night were the middle schoolers and high schoolers have fun, grow in fellowship and learn about God. But this night was different. It was special. This night was my churches annual Halloween Costume party!
I was dressed as Tris from the Divergent series, since that is my Halloween costume for this year. And all the other costumes were really amazing! One of my friends was a scarecrow. Another a lego, and another a moose! And my sister and her friend were dressed as Lilo and Stitch! But there was one costume that REALLY stood out to me. Like stood out so much that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I can’t even stop thinking about it now, while I’m typing this, 24 hours later. I loved it that much.
And this amazing costume was, Tyler Joseph.
A 11th grade guy from my church was dressed as Tyler Joseph.
Tyler Joseph is my hero and my life and like all I think about all day everyday (besides Josh Dun)
If for some sad reason you don’t know who Tyler Joseph is, he is the singer in the band Twenty-One Pilots.
This is Tyler:
But this guy at my church, his costume was PERFECT.
He had the flower kimono, he had the black neck and hand paint, he EVEN HAD A UKULELE!!
And honestly when I saw him and it clicked in my head *this guy is dressed as my favorite human being.. AHHH* I think what I felt the most was shock. I was just shocked, happy, I wanted to scream, cry, hug him and just like obsess over this amazingness. I mean, I knew that there were people at my church that were also TOP fans, but I wasn’t expecting this! But I loved it!
And what do you do when you love someones Halloween costume? You go up to them and say “Hey, I really like your costume.”, they day thanks, and you walk away. But there was my issue. I COULDN’T tell him I liked it. I don’t know why, but just the thought of telling him gave me anxiety. I guess I was afraid that it would come out all creepy like “I’M OBSESSED WITH YOUR COSTUME AND TYLER JOSEPH” and he would think that I was some kind of creepy weirdo, and that would some how ruin his friendship with my older sister? (The guy who was dressed as Ty is really close friends with my sister, and he knows that I related to her) I honestly don’t know what my problem was, I guess it was just anxiety.
So, instead of telling him I just kind of obsessed from a distance and just like wouldn’t shut up about how much I loved it, with my friends. But eventually it started to annoy my friends and we made an agreement. I had to get over this anxiety and tell this guy that I liked his costume, by the end of the night or.. um well their wasn’t really a consequence for if I didn’t follow through but umm.. oh whale. (I know this probably seems so simple and stupid to you, but I really felt uncomfortable even thinking about talking to this guy.)
And then the end of the night came. And all the youth from my church was taking a group picture together. I was standing there smiling for the camera with my friends all around me, and I look behind me, just to see who’s there. And of course, standing there, is the Tyler Joseph guy. This was my chance. And I knew that. I turned around and said “Hey, I really like your costume!”
One of my friends standing in front of me (who doesn’t know that I get anxiety) turned around and said,”Yeah, she’s been obsessing over it all night.” And I tried to say something like “I really like Tyler” but it wasn’t happening. And then the guy who was Tyler was just kind of like “Umm.. okay..” And I walked away.
Basically I got over an anxiety block! But in the end it kind of got worse.
Moral of the story: I’m obsessed with Tyler and Josh at an unhealthy level and apparently that gives me social anxiety.
I don’t really know why I posted this but um, why not?
Do you have any weird or embarrassing stories that somehow relate to Halloween?
