It’s my birthday, so it’s fun for me… Last year, I was the Sunshine Girl I was in yellow from top to bottom, yellow hair to yellow shoes, even wore yellow makeup!  And I carried a giant bright yellow sun flower. I went to a senior residence party. All the pictures are on my mom’s computer, and she’s gone for 3 weeks… This year, I don’t know yet. Maybe a “Mrs. T”??

We’re either going as Ginny and Harry Potter; Woodie and Little Bo Peep, or Ariel and Prince Eric. We can’t decide lol.

And I’ll be teaching on Halloween, so I’m going as a cereal killer, where I’ve sewn a bunch of mini ceral boxes to a sweater, and am making some knives out of cardboard. I’m excited for that, I’m hoping my students (9th grade mostly) get it!

@cirk:  What subjects do you teach? It would be cool if on that day, you are teaching the difference between same word pronounciation in an english class!!

  • bare-bear … 
  • two – to – too …  
  • four – fore…  
  • cereal – serial…

Well this year for Halloween we will be in Cuba on our HM! I have no clue if they do something for Halloween but if they do I guess we’ll wing it as to what kinda costume we will have.

Last year we didn’t coordianate.  I was Ramona Flowers and he was Hunter S. Thompson.  This year he wanted to coordinate so we’re going as Cyclops and Emma Frost.

I want to be Carmen Sandiego. It’s really just an excuse to get a really cute red trenchcoat. It’s also really easy: coat, some high heels, and a fedora – DONE. My husband was the Where’s Waldo guy a few years ago and I think he’ll do it again. How perfect would those two characters be together?

My other idea is Lana from the tv show Archer – love her and love the show!

@Leelee26:  this is awesome!!

So far our couples costume ideas are a tortoise and a hare, or BMO and Finn from Adventure Time.  I really want to be a bunny but I also really want to be BMO… haha.

Last year I was Astrid from How to Train your Dragon.

I cut the sleeves off a thrift store sweater and made very simply constructed skirt out of brown faux leather from the fabric store (essentially an a-line wrap skirt, and then I cut out the skirt flaps and sewed/glued them on top). I made the skulls out of the kind of clay that you bake to harden and sharpie marker, the shoulder pads were just plastic knee pads I spray painted with a metallic and stone-effect spray paint. I also used the spray paint on wine corks to make all the spikes and glued them on the skirt and shoulder pads. And I used leather cord for the headband.

My favorite costume ever, though, was the Xena the Warrior Princess costume I used Etsy’s Alchemy feature to commission. It was a thick faux leather with sewn-on golden detailing.

This year, I’m thinking maybe Harley Quinn, though I’m still trying to figure out the best way to make that work while spending >$100 and without buying it from a big box Halloween store. It’s going to be tricky.

ETA: Last year my fiance was grapes. He wore purple and pinned purple balloons all over himself. He couldn’t sit down, but it was pretty awesome for a $3 costume.
