However, when it comes to my own Halloween costumes, I have never been one to go all out and put a lot of effort or money into them. I tend to rely on items that are either already in my closet or ones that are inexpensive/borrowed and I can get some use out of them later on.
Anyways, I figured since it's Halloween and all and I did not actually get dressed up this year I would bring out the Ghosts of Halloween's Past, enjoy the show folks.
Fun Fact: this is the first tagged photo of me on fb, ever. (Cool story, I know)
Also, for those of you who have never worn some type of wings or anything on your back for a costume I don't suggest it. They are a hassle in a crowded room. I hit more than one person in the face that night, which let's be honest I thought it was pretty entertaining. The people I hit did not.
I should of been a
cowboy cowgirl! (Isn't that a song or something?)
Like I mentioned before if I can't borrow it or re-use an item after Halloween I don't want it in my costume. Hence the borrowed cowboy hat and boots. Because yes, even though I grew up in Glide, Oregon, I do not own any of those things in real life.
high five. very nice.
Ok, so that one wasn't actually a costume, but a group of us did get dressed up to buy 50 punkins from WinCo once and the pictures from the outting might be my favorite things ever.
Totally look like a baseball player... or something? Def would have benefited from a real bat.
Again, in this costume we have a borrowed referee shirt, whistle, and my trusty volleyball spandex, thanks Willamette! Oh wait not thanks, I had to pay for them myself.
Annnnd for my last confession, the past few years were even more lazy (if possible). I couldn't find pics, but I essentially have worn the same tennis player costume 3 years in a row. I say costume lightly, because the visor, tennis skirt, and tennis racket that complete the outfit, are used in real life when I play.
So yeah, I am sure you all have had much more elaborate and creative costume's than mine, but what are you gonna do?
Cheers to Halloween!
