No matter how old you are, it’s always a MUST to dress up for Halloween. No excuses! Think about how long you you dreamt about what you would be that year when you were little. Don’t disappoint your younger self. I know my costume ideas changed quite often, resulting in a frazzled mom by the time the infamous day came. Princess? Ballerina? Ghost?
My sister and I always got to get our photos taken at good ole Motophoto in our costumes and looked forward to our moment of fame being photographed each year. Now, it’s quite comical to look back on all these photos; we have a dedicated shelf at my parent’s house with each years costumes during the Halloween season.
I think the below photo has to be the winner though with our American Girl doll costumes. Our favorites, Samantha and Kirsten. Those bangs though!
Unlike those cute days, now, I like to be something a little spOooOky. Below are some really easy but fun ideas for Halloween!
How creepy is this costume? It’s quite appropriate for me at the time and I think my fiancé is a little frightened how excited I am to dress up as a killer housewife! Mwahahaha. But seriously how easy and fun is this costume? Just grab your fancier “wifey” looking dress or skirt and top then purchase an apron. Splatter the apron with red and voila! Killer costume!
I loved being a ballerina on Halloween and believe I got a couple years wear of that costume. This look is similar to my younger years of playing ballerina, yet spook-ified! Grab a tutu and purchase either some true ballet flats, or Jessica Simpson look alike pointe shoes. Makeup is a must to make the costume recognizable! Any smokey eye palette should work.
This costume is cheap, fun and ultimate creepy. Also, on trend considering the Walking Dead and it’s spin off show is still going… I got a little over it after the second season but know there are still huge fans out there! But back to the zombies, I don’t think anything quite scares me more than the thought of an epidemic. Eek! For this costume, all you need is your normal clothes and then face makeup and a brush to rough up that hair. You do have to sign up to be a little theatrical to get the point across though! I like the idea of having a backpack that used to be someone’s survival guide – pre becoming a zombie.
Do you usually go sexy or scary for Halloween? I just love spooky halloween costumes so let me know if you have a good one! What will you be this year?
