The Case of the Lame Halloween Costumes

My Halloween costumes have never been cool. EVER. When I was a kid, I was either a witch (all black outfit + pointy hat) or a vampire (all black outfit + fangs) every year. Once I was an equestrian. (all black outfit + boots + cowboy hat) The year before last I was a cat (black outfit+ cat ears).

This year I said no more! Alas, I didn't think this plan out till the night before Halloween. I wound up working pretty late and got to the party store at 8:30 at night, so I wound up with a pair of wings and some giant purple false eyelashes.

Hmm, a purple bat!

My husband got really creative with his hippie costume and NO ONE recognized him.

We had a group of guys dressed as Guy Fox....very creepy!

And a bunch of other folks as the Super Mario characters...very creative!

Next year, I've decided. I'm actually going to plan ahead and get a real costume from a costume shop. And it's going to be REALLY cool!

What are some of the best costumes you guys have seen? I need ideas!

I'm afraid I'm blank on cool ideas, but I loved what you showed us here!

You and your hubby looked great! I saw a really cute costume yesterday. This fourth grader had a suit on and lipstick kisses all over his face. Then he took a big cardboard box and decorated it like a kissing booth. It was adorable!

Very cute, Dona! I'm glad to see that other offices dress up, too. That always makes it more fun in my opinion. Not very productive of a day...but more fun. ;-)
