Happy Halloween Readers! I LOVE this holiday, despite never wanting to dress up or partake in any haunted house or party. Maybe it is because it is the only time of year that Hocus Pocus comes on television or maybe it was because we NEVER had trick-or-treaters growing up. We lived off the beaten path and no one ever came to our house. I am so excited for trick-or-treaters tonight! I think we only had 15 last year. Apparently it is not as safe to trick or treat in this day and age.
I just really love to see people dressed in costumes, is that creepy? Not the gross, flesh melting, serial killer costumes, but the costumes that take effort and creativity. ANYONE can go to a store and purchase a costume, BORING! I like when kids and adults get creative. Maybe dress as something that isn’t wildly popular. We only need 1 Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift in this world. (PS Not hating on T-Swift. I LOVE her and her new album. Check it out, seriously). Also this note is for you young women, PLEASE stop wearing costumes so slutty and gross that your pikachu is showing for the entire world to see! Seriously, keep that under wraps. I thought I’d share some of my favorite Pinterest finds in case you might need some non-slutty and fun ideas.
This UP inspired costume may be the cutest thing I HAVE EVER SEEN!! We tried to get Laners to wear this, but his mother thought he might be dangerous with the walker. No Fun!!
If you have a daughter, dress her as Audrey. It doesn’t even have to be for Halloween. If I had a child, I would make her wear this ALL the time. How adorable is this??
I love this last costume! It looks pretty easy and you’ll probably have most of the items on hand. The hat and beard could be constructed fairly cheaply and easily. I also LOVED David the Gnome when I was younger.
Shout out to the 90’s kids. Here is an episode, I’m sure you’ll love it too. It is much better than SpongeBob…
I LOVE Mary Poppins! Seriously, I love everything about her. Her British accent, her strict, but loving ways, her manners and most of all I love her duffel bag that holds tons of things (Hermione had one too!) Why not find a chimney sweep to go with you to a party?
Rock, Paper, Scissors! Haha, these girls, aside from looking like drunk sorority girls, have a great idea. It's not slutty and it's fun. Plus, who doesn’t love a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors? Everything could be decided that night by one of you hopping up to play. It would be hilarious!
50 Shades of Gray: This last costume is for the few that forgot that they had a Halloween party to attend. Stop by your local home improvement store and stock up on paint shades. The 20-somethings at the party should be drooling over you by the end of the night, not because you are a cool guy, but because they think that you may have actually read a book, which is rare for the male sex.
I hope you all have a SAFE & fabulous Halloween!
