    We dressed up as a plug and electrical socket one year.  Super fun.

    Another year my husband had grown a giant beard for some reason and wanted to incorporate it.  We decided on a bearded clam and one-eyed trouser snake… I’m sure you can guess what those are terms for, if you haven’t heard em.  

    Apparently we like really juvenile inappropriate costumes!

    I looove couples costumes so far we have been:

    Butterfly (me) & Bee (SO)

    Jelly Belly Beans, look that one up in google!! Super cheap, easy and super super cute!

    Schrödingers Cat (me beiing tbe cute living cat, SO was the rotten dead cat)

    We have also been D-Celebs from “I’m a celebrity get me out of here” That one was a huge hit because my SO went as a very well known Drag Queen from the show. Getting ready was actually fun and weird (have you ever put make up on your man??)

    Since my laptop was stolen I don’t have any pics 🙁 

    I would love to do

    Marge & Homer Simpson

    Marie Antoinette (with a bloody neck) & her hangman 

    I absolutely recommend the Jelly Belly Beans!!

    2012: FI and I went as white trash. I rolled beer cans in my hair, painted my lips bright red, had a naked doll in my arms all night and pretended to smoke a cigarette all night. FI stuffed his stomach with a beer belly, wore a bald cap, and pretended to smoke a cig and drank beers all night. We brought our own lawn chairs to the party and sat in them, drinking, and yelled at people to get off our porch all night. We won the costume contest. 

    2013: I got a truly awful haircut and bleached my hair blond a week before Halloween. When I got home, with my hair parted down the middle and curly, my FI made an offhand comment that I looked like Chad Kroeger from Nickleback, thus sparking the best idea ever. I dressed up in jeans, a black tshirt, a leather wrist band, and drew a goatee on my face. My FI wore cargo shorts, a green tshirt, a loose tie, a long blond wig, and a baseball cap. He went as Avril Lavigne circa Sk8ter boi. 

    2014: This year we are going as Dorothy and Sophia from The Golden Girls. FI is going as Dorothy and I am going as Sophia. We went to Goodwill to get our costumes (except the wigs). 

    I always say go big or go home. We usually like to do something silly/weird. I love dressing up and luckily FI is a great sport and goes along with my crazy ideas 🙂

    We were Boris & Natasha once.  He was Natasha, I was Boris.  I wanted our kids to be Rocky & Bullwinkle, but they wouldn’t go for it.

    HopefulCatlover:  My parents used to have Halloween parties with a costume contest. Their best: flapper and a pimp (dad was the flapper, mom was the pimp….and Dad is verrrry hairy lol), nun and priest (when my mum was 8 months pregnant), hunter and a deer witha sign saying ‘eat more turkey’.

    The year before we were engaged I went as a mail order bride and my now husband was just an awfully dressed inappropriate man. He played the part a little too well. All night people kept referring to him as “Mr. Inappropriate” haha, we needed last minute costumes and I already had the dress and veil from a friend’s bachelorette party and he just went to the thrift store and bought an old suit and tie…and a wig from the halloween store. 

    PS–nothing against mail order brides or am I in no way saying everyone who does it is with a creepy weird guy who has a mullet. I just got lucky 😉
