I’m not in the camp of “dressing up on Halloween is just for the kids.”
Now.. trick or treating is certainly only for the kiddos.
I enjoy the planning of the outfit, the making of the outfit and then seeing everyone’s outfits!
Every Halloween we have an overwhelmingly awesome amount of people dressing up for the occasion in really amazing costumes. (Check out last year’s response to the Alice in Wonderland theme!)
This year we also had a costume contest!
Check out some of the costumes we had in attendance:
(This is only a smattering of the amazing costumes we got…
it would be a terribly long post if I put up everyone’s amazing costumes!)
Me as a clown (I’m pretty proud that I managed to make that costume!)
My husband as a ring leader and my son the lion!
I made my dress but bought a wig, horn, and white gloves to make my costume. For my husband’s costume we bought a wig, hat, and whip. And, my son wore a lion costume that I purchased from Costumes4Less.
Beetlejuice and Lydia (don’t they look amazing!)
The Adams Family— Wednesday even won for Best Overall Costume.
I loved this one… “The Drowning Girl” by Roy Lichtenstein
A Blind Ref
We also had a Mr. Plum, Lana from Archer, Ricky & Lucky Ricardo, Coach McGurk from Home Movies, Border Patrol…. and so many more!
