It is two weeks until Halloween and I have nothing to wear. I asked my friends in all seriousness if we were getting too old to dress up this year and you should have seen their faces, it looked like I insulted their mothers! So guess what? We are dressing up!
I thought last year I was playing it safe with two iconic choices, Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White. I had a great time as Little Red Riding Hood at a friends costume party and a wonderful evening with Karly Kim on a Halloween boat cruise in my Snow White costume. The thing is, over the summer I realized both of last year’s costumes are repeats from previous years:
With those in mind this year I am determined to be original. In order to do so I took a look at the things I had been in the past, in college I was a Catholic school girl, a pirate, a peacock, and a police officer. After graduating college I’ve dressed as Honey Boo Boo, a cat, and of course, Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White. So what am I going to be this year? Well after crazy Googling I found a few store-bought costumes that I am so-so about. Do you know how hard it is to find a costume that is not over $100 or overtly sexual? Guys, Halloween is October 31st every year and now that I am past the age of eight my costume wearing will not begin until 10pm and it is going to be COLD. Here are the costumes I am on the fence about:
They are cute but nothing wow and again, I want to be different this year. After perusing Pinterest, PopSugar, Elle, Magazine and Google images these are my six favorite DIY costumes for this Halloween:
What do you think I should be this year?
