Miss Coral:  I’m going to be a circus ring leader. It was a $20 Walmart costume lol

I saw a fun “Regina George” DIY. The girl is already blonde, she wore a white tank top with the boob area cut out and purple bra underneath and black skirt. She carried around a “burn book”. It was hilarious!

Miss Coral:  I’m Luigi, DH is Mario. Not terribly original, but fun. We got hats and moustaches at the Party store. I scoped out Goodwill for red and green shirts and I painted blue overalls on them with plain ol’ acrylic paint and hot glued buttons on. 🙂

DH and I were in a Halloween costume party/contest this weekend, and we did a Super Mario Bros. theme.  Our Corgi was Mario, DH was Luigi, and I went as Princess Peach.  We DIY-ed DH’s costume – bought him some denim overalls, a long sleeved green shirt, and got a Luigi hat and mustache from Amazon.  My costume and our dog’s costume were ordered in advanced though.

You and your FI could be sushi!  I did this 2 years ago as a last minute costume and I got DH a sushi chef costume online from Pottery Barn.  All you need to wear is a white shirt, a wide black or green belt/sash/scarf to wear around your waist, and a decorated poster board as the fish part like these people did.

I used a pillow stuffed inside a red pillow case that I painted lines on with a white paint pen to look like tuna.  I also made a headband of wasabi and ginger with felt and a hair clip I found at Michael’s.  I don’t have a full photo of us, but you can see my headband in this pic.

(Excuse DH’s expression. He totally wasn’t ready for the pic!)

I’m going as Daenerys Targaryen. I just bought the costume… I wasn’t feeling the DIY/creativity thing this year. Previous years I have done Jem, Sailor Moon, etc.

This is the first year we are dressing up together. I’ve either had to work (nurse) or we’ve had seperate costumes. We decided to go as Popeyes and olive oyl 🙂 I can’t wait!

Last year we were Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World. I only had to buy the hat and a blonde wig, but you could easily make the hat too.

I’m 27 weeks pregnant right now.  I saw a really neat costume online for a pregnant woman.  It was the headless horseman with the belly decorated as the pumpkin head.  However, I had a bad fall and ended up with no time/inclination to actually make a costume of that caliber, (the party was the following weekend), so we went to the store and ended up buying a costume.  I went as a pregnant nun, which everyone got a kick out of.  The best part was DH’s friend taking like five minutes to realize “Hey, wait a minute!  You can’t be a pregnant nun!  That’s not how it works!”
