I love Halloween. We already covered that, I know, but I just wanted to get it out there.
I love playing dress up.
I love a good party.
I love all the spooky stuff, too.
The past several years, I have had AWESOME costumes. Not to toot my own little horn, but I can be pretty creative when I really try. Let’s re-visit all my great ideas, and then you can see why I am stumped this year.
Three years ago, I was a fairy. My dear friend Susan and I spent an ENTIRE DAY making the tutu. And I had glittery shoes. Fun stuff! I also punched the only person I have ever been in an altercation with while wearing this very outfit.
For Halloween 2007, I got together with 3 other people and we formed “PRISS,” the girlie equivalent to KISS. I was Queen Simmons. We worked on this for about a month before Halloween.
Halloween 2008 was a little bit of an off-year for me, creatively. I was a ladybug, mostly because I love ladybugs. And it gave me a chance to be something glittery and girly. I made this tutu, too. (hee hee) For some reason I waited until the DAY OF this party to get my stuff together and that tutu was an all day affair.
Last year, I got to be 2 different things. I borrowed a devil costume from my friend Stacey, who unfortunately passed away about a week later, for one party. I could wear pant suits like this EVERY DAY if I had it in different colors….
My absolute number one favorite costume idea ever… Was Vinnie Paul Abbot (he was the drummer for Pantera and Damageplan and is currently with Hellyeah.) I’ve had the hat for a few years, and I had a lot of fun with this really super easy costume. The chest hair I applied with spirit gum and BOY did it itch!!!!
Now that I have oooohed and aaaahhhhed over all my past creativity…
This year I am stumped. I have a very limited budget, but that was true the past few years as well. I’ve decided to take an old Grim Reaper/Wizard robe that the lovely roommate had lying around and had forgotten he had… Cut it short, add feathers, tights, and a cutesy witch hat and go as a pink and black witch.
That’s really all I have.
Here’s a terrible drawing I did in paint illustrating my intentions. Don’t be jealous.
What are YOU going to be????
