Right up until just a few weeks ago, I was completely without any inspiration as to what to wear for Halloween this year. I had finally resigned myself to recycling a previous year’s costume, but then I saw the Adventure Time episode “Nemesis” whilst trying to catch up on Season 6.
Suddenly, I was inspired! There was this goofy character that was a riff on the old Witch-Hunter / The Hunter Trope, who has sworn to defeat evil, whilst also raising 3 children and driving around in a minivan.
Doc thinks that Peace Master leans a bit towards He Who Fights Monsters and/or Van Helsing Hate Crimes in that he believes Peace Master is struggling with evil within himself and this is what fuels his intense hatred of evil and the dark arts, but I disagree. I think he is more of the Mage Killer / Witch Hunter played straight.
Plus, he looks very “costumey.” So I pulled together a costume, and it worked out! Hooray!
An extra bonus about the Peace Master costume: it has a built-in purse. Most costumes don’t have a purse, and/or wearing your purse with them detracts. But the Peace Master costume requires a purse. That worked out really well.
