So it's Monday again, and being the perpetual procrastinator I have to rush around this week in order to get my Halloween costume together. This year I decided to make my costume, mostly because I'm a procrastinator and never went out to buy one. This could be a disaster, this home made costume making business.
Do you all get into Halloween?
Whatever! Yes we do!!! This will be Matt and I's third Halloween party together. We have so much fun dressing up with so many of our friends. Who says costumes are just for kids? Not us!
Would you like to see our costumes from previous years? Well alrighty then, here you go:
last year's costumes
Matt bought his costume last minute and had to wear a fat suit under his XXL costume
our very first Halloween together
I love looking back at older pictures - reminds me of how giddy we were in the beginning
this was when I'd first moved back to Oklahoma
I had decided that very day to go out for Halloween with a couple friends (I hadn't met Matt yet)
this "artist" costume was what I came up with in a couple hours
HA HA HA!
I can't believe I'm showing you this photo, but it seriously makes me laugh (and laugh and laugh and laugh) This was back in San Diego with my two very favorite co-workers and friends...
(recognize Marie on the left? We went to Montana for her wedding).
They insisted we all wear wigs and I refused to wear a crazy colored wig for some reason. So they bought me a wig that was my same hair color and cut in bangs. It was awful and awesome all in one. This is the least embarrassing photo of the bunch (and the least inappropriate) which I realize isn't saying much. Funny thing is that none of us work there or even live in California anymore. It's strange how drastically life changes. I miss both of these ladies a ton.
San Diego, 2006
I actually liked my Minnie Mouse costume a lot - even if it was, maybe, a bit saccharine.
I built this costume around the Minnie Mouse ears because I already had them for some odd reason. This was another last minute costume idea... (Seeing a theme of last minute costume ideas?)
I blotted out the other two girls' faces because I haven't talked to them in years and don't know how they'd feel about being pictured here.
Thanks for strolling down Halloween-Costume-Memory-Lane with me. ;)
Are you dressing up this year? Are you going with store bought or are you a handmade creative type? Do you plan out your costumes way in advance or are you last minute decider like yours truly?
