Hi bees, I searched through the boards, hadn’t found anything about this upcoming 2011 halloween so I figured I would strike up the convo (let me know if I missed a thread). I know, I know – it’s early! Still wedding season! But I love to sew mine every year, so I always start brainstorming early. Share some of your best ideas! Couple and single person costumes need apply. To start:
– Sexy hamburger (mockery, yes) I made a cute dress that looked like a slice of a hamburger
– Lawn flamingo and garden gnome (friend’s idea, thought it was super cute)
– Babe-raham Lincoln – friend did this last year, feminie Abe costume, pretty make up, full beard (ha)
– Bikers ala Supertroopers (one motorcyclist, one bicyclist)
– Geena Davis and Tom Hanks from A League of Their Own (or just Geena)
Contemplating being The Dude (Lebowski) and having WantsToBeMr.Heartly be Walter – though I’m not sure I can master this. I’d love to hear any ideas y’all have seen that were clever, topical, or downright fun. I’ll keep thinking…

One year Darling Husband and I went as:
Me- Arthur King of the Britains (complete with coconuts)
DH- White bunny
For all you Monty Python fans.
I LOVE A League of Their Own!!! There’s no crying in baseball!

I really want my Boyfriend or Best Friend to dress up as The Man in the Yellow Hat, while I’m Curious George! Its kinda ironic cause he’s tall and white in comparision to me being pretty short and brown 😉

Ohhh fun, I have actually already been looking online for idea’s also!
Halloween 2009 my hubby & I bought all of the stuff to make ours. I came up with it one night when I couldn’t find anything I liked online.
Mr. & Mrs. Halloween.
We bought orange halloween shirts. His had a scary pumpkin face on it & mine had a spider wed & other things. For my outfit I bought orange & black striped stockings & was going to wear a black skirt with high heels that had skulls on them. Then I was going to poof my hair really big & put fake webs in it, ect. I also had skull earrings! As for hubby he was going to wear a pumpkin halloween mask & we was also going to draw pumpkins & ghosts, ect on my face. 😛 We ended up not doing it because it rained hard that night so instead we just wore our shirts with jeans & went out to eat. 😛
I thought it was a pretty cute idea though! Otherwise we have always just bought our costumes online or in a store. Last year we was jail mates. hahaha

My Darling Husband is really tall and I want us to be The jolly green giant and lil’ sprout, but so far he wont go for it. That and we dont go to many costume parties.

I want to go as Claire and John from The Breakfast Club. It’s funny because he is really the preppy one and I’m the more off beat one so it would be out of character for both of us. LOL
Unless we go to a pet friendly event, then out doggie Buster will be sporting a fin and we will be the “shark attack victims”.

One year I went as a deer (complete with face makeup, antlers and a real tail-we have a friend who does taxidermy..LOL) and Fiance was a hunter.
The next year I was a Girls Gone Wild gal with my censored sign covering my ample (extremely fake) boobs sticking out of my shirt with my “schoolgirl outfit” and Fiance was the camera guy
Last year I didn’t have much time or money to put into a costume so I went as a nudist on strike. I went fully clothed with a sign that said “Nudist on strike!” on one side and “No, No I won’t disrobe!” on the other (and I might have drawn a well endowed lil’ stick gal… tee hee

- Wedding: June 2015 - Thorpewood
Haha I’m going as a Ravenclaw this year and my boyfriend is going to be a Gryffindor. Mainly because we already have the costumes from the premiere of HP.
Next year I want to be Sookie Stackhouse and convince him to be Bill, but, well I doubt it’ll happen. Haha.

Max from Where the Wild Things are…….Hands down my favorite costume ever

Darling Husband wants to go as Wall-E and Eve. It’s his favorite Pixar movie, and it’s kind of funny because he sort or reminds me of Wall-E. Not sure why.
I’m totally up for the idea, except that I will end up being the one making his elaborate costume.
I’ve also been commissioned to make candy corn costumes for my infant niece and nephew, so it’s going to be a busy year for costumes!

I think I’m going as William Wallace complete with huge sword. I have no clue what Fiance is going as.
Last year I went as Ron Burgundy and I looked good. I mean really good. Hey everyone, come and see how good I looked.
*cough* Sorry, working in a video store has made 85% of my thoughts into movie quotes. For the costume this year I will probably have a thick Scottish accent :).

My favorite ever costume was a peacock costume a I made with about 100+ feathers. I won some contests and cash money with that sweet get-up!
This year, I REALLY want to be the Lady Gaga’s skeleton character in her Born This Way video. Sweet makeup, fully clothed, and still sexy/scary.
Then again, Mr.ND and I have yet to do a couple-y costume, but Halloween is our anniversary (of dating) so we often just go out together and hang out and hand out candy, then drive around to look at the awesome decked-out houses. I want to go all out this year! *puts on thinking cap*
