Halloween week kick-off! What is your costume?

Happy Wednesday!

            I know I should have kicked off theme week on Monday..but hey, life calls! So without further ado let's kick off.....

Ahh Halloween the time for ghosts and goblins and candy overdoses! I'm not one to go overboard with the decorating and dressing up but it is fun to carve pumpkins and dress in silly costumes that have you laughing all night long!

So, what are you being, or better yet, what are you dressing up your pets/children as?

Still stumped?

Well let me give you some ideas, from the easy to the elaborate and also share with you who Ryan and I are dressing up as!

Here are some quick ideas that you can put together for that last minute party or trick or treating adventure:

1. Wear all black and put a large picture of a stamp on your chest. You have become "black mail"
2. Attach sugar cubes or candy all over yourself. You have transformed into a "sugar daddy/momma"
3. Get a box, cut a hole for your head. Attach a book, box of tissue, and a small lamp.
You are a "one night stand."
4. Dress normally then pin some socks, dryer sheets, and hand towels to your clothes. You are "static cling"
5. Dress in a suit and attach fake legal documents all over you. You have become a "law suit"

These are great ideas, I really love the static cling LOL!

Now how about the kid-lets! They are super fun to dress up and they look so cute:)

Mad scientist!

How cute is she?

A water creative!

How about your fur babies? Yes, they can become part of the spirit too, if only for a few minutes:)

 Top Dog...LOVE it!

 Neither look impressed!

This one just gets me laughing..look at those legs:)

As Ryan and I are doing a couple costume I thought I would share a few...
 Love it and super easy to do!

You inspired yet?  Don't worry I won't be disappointed if you just put a sheet over your head and cut holes for's all in good fun!

So, who are Ryan and I going to be??

Mario and Princess Peach!!!
We are hoping Ry's friend is going to be Luigi because it would be over the top hilarious!

My costume is not nearly as elaborate as this one but I found a dress at a thrift store that ended up being too small. We improvised and made it a lace up back HA! I'll show you pictures soon. A friend is borrowing me the blond wig today so I'll show you a picture of the full dress-up soon.

Here is our get -up for 80's halloween LOL! Everything was from a second hand store. I wish I could find that t-shirt I'm wearing because it's pretty awesome!

Can't wait to see what you guys are dressing up as!!!
Stay tuned as I'll be sharing lots about goodies, ghosts, and so much more! And don't forget the pumpkins:)
