Eeeek! Happy Halloween Weekend!! I used to be the girl who would shop for material and start crafting her one of a kind Halloween costume weeks, sometimes months in advance. In recent years, I’ve been lucky enough to even make it out of the house …never mind the clever costume! (more…)
As promised in my previous post, I mentioned that I would share my Halloween costumes! This year I made two 🙂 I celebrated at a fun, low-key, house party last Friday night then went out on Saturday with some friends for a late bar night. I’ve gathered a few of the dozens of pictures I had taken over Halloween weekend to share here. Take a peek below & enjoy!
NIGHT 1: Saved By the Bell – Kelly Kapowski
NIGHT 2: Rihanna. This costume was a tricky one! I really wanted to make it last year, but ran out of time. I still had some of the material so I decided to go for it this year! This is SOOOO not me, which is why it was so much fun 🙂
It was a really fun Halloween weekend! I got to be creative, dress up, spend time with my boyfriend and some of my favorite people, have a few drinks & dance :).
Wondering how I was feeling on Sunday?
I’m getting to old for this. Until next year, Halloween! For now, it’s back to my comfort zone of being a little homebody, baking, watching movies & laying low 🙂
You can be sure that I will be wearing my black and orange today AND indulging in all things Halloween. I wish I could say I’d be passing out candy tonight, but 3 years ago, my roommate & I learned the hard way when we bought 12 lbs of candy in anticipation of the dozens of children that would be ringing the doorbell at our condo complex…needless to say, we had a whopping Z-E-R-O come by. We ended up feasting on a wide variety of Mars & Hershey products for weeks. Evidence:
So tonight I plan to bake some treats, watch a couple Halloween classics, and work on my costumes. Eeee!
Can I just tell you how much I LOVE making my costume every year?! I really got into when I was in college. After perusing some of those photos, I’ve opted not to post any pictures because…. well, I’m a working woman. Not that they were anything offensive, or crazy inappropriate, but you know how college goes. Regardless, I still loved them – I was really able to tap into my creative side & in turn, now adore this holiday even more!
With that said, I have two costumes this year! I will write a post about them sometime next week since I won’t be wearing either until the weekend. I’m really excited about them for many reasons, one being that I’ve never personally seen anyone wear either 🙂
Here’s a sneak peek:
So, I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween!
Be sure to paint your nails, bake some cookies, dress up, eat lots of caramel apples, carve a pumpkin and watch lots of scary movies today!!
