The University daycare kids come around to all the offices to Trick or Treat for Halloween. It was supposed to be today, so I dressed up as "girl who actually wears makeup to work". But it got moved to tomorrow. There's no way I'm gonna wear makeup two days in a row, so tomorrow I'll just be "scary looking girl". That's more fun anyway, right?
It's dreary outside and I'm kinda loving it. Perfect Halloween weather. I made my costume last night. I was going to do this costume last year but I never got around to it, so I was Daria instead. It was kinda awesome.
I think this year's costume is even more awesome. I just went to Wal Mart (and Home Depot), and picked up a few things. I cut, pasted, taped, and spray painted and then I was done. I love making my own costumes. Although I am disappointed that I didn't have time to make the costume I really wanted this year. Slutty Pumpkin. (Any HIMYM fans out there? I was gonna rock that costume. And drink Kahlua and Root Beer all night.)
I like when people are creative and make their own costumes (like this or this) as opposed to buying Slutty Tinkerbell from some random online store.
I use Slutty Tinkerbell as my example because when I was in college, I got invited to a Halloween date party. My date and I were going to be Peter Pan and Tinkerbell. I was in charge of getting the costumes. I ordered my Tinkerbell costume from some random online website. When I got it...I realized I never looked at the "back view". It was totally assless! So instead, we were a doctor and a crazy patient. I was in a straight jacket. He wore my sister's scrubs. (What? I like skinny guys.)
Here's a little treat from the Ghost of Halloween Past (from 20 years ago). Yes I am wearing a garbage bag. And yes I'm am the cutest (non-slutty) pumpkin EVER.
Happy Halloween! What are you gonna be?
