I love to dress up for Halloween! In fact, I believe I like it much more as an adult than I did as a kid. I usually attend a party at the karaoke establishment I like to frequent. They always have a cash prize for the top 3 winners. In 2006, I won the top prize of $200.00 for this one: Bubble Bath. I was accompanied by my dear friend, Cereal Killer, who won $50.00. I looked these up on the Internet and they cost us practically nothing.
Last year, I was Static Cling. I didn't win anything but I loved my costume. I think I love it most because I was very comfortable. When I was Bubble Bath, I was miserable - my "bubbles" kept falling out of my "tub" and I couldn't sit down all night.
In 2005, I went as Tabitha Witch, and was accompanied by my dear friend, Spider Witch. We didn't win any money but we sure had fun!
Many Halloweens ago, I went to a friend's house party as the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz. I really put on the dog for this one. I had a fake nose with a mole and a fake chin. My nose and chin were rubber and stuck on with some type of cosmetic glue. Well they kept sweating off and I was constantly trying to discreetly press them back into place so I wouldn't lose them in the punch bowl or the dip! I had the voice and that loud, shrill laugh down to a tee. The only thing missing was the Flying Monkeys! If I could still fit in this dress, I'd be this character every year. I was really GOOD!
This year, I plan to go as The Bride of Frankenstein. Of course, I'm very low on funds so it will have to be pretty much a home-made frock. I'm thinking of using white sheets but am still working out the details. I'll be sure to have pictures and will let you know how it goes.
Brandon is going as The Joker from The Dark Knight. He gets out in the neighborhood with all the other "kids" and has a great time handing out candy and doing a little trick-or-treating. Neither of us will ever grow up :)
If any of you have any old or new costume pics of yourself, please share. Also, if anyone has any ideas on how to fashion my bridal gown out of sheets (preferable with little or no sewing) - let me hear 'em.
