From an unofficial "tag" (thanks, Sara), I decided to do a flashback of our family's Halloween costumes through the years. Are you ready? I know you must be, because I sure am.
I really wish I could find a picture of this year, but I think it's buried in a box somewhere. Justin was an Oompa Loompa and I was Storm from X-men. If I find it, I'll post it. But for now, just try to use your fantastic imaginations.... Justin's face painted BRIGHT orange while wearing a bright green wig, a purple/white striped midget costume...waddling... yes, you see it now? I'm sorry for putting that image in your head.
Angel and disco-man.
His true character was revealed. I was so proud.
He won First place ($200) at a costume contest downtown!
Kennedy's first Halloween. Nanananananananana... Bat Girl!
(No costume for me, this year)
He won first place again at the costume contest, that year. He came up with the idea, and I made the costume- I even put one of my old bras in the woman side of it and sewed a necklace on that half... we also shaved his legs. It was awesome.
My wittow pumpkin.
And again, no Ashley costume.
Yes, my friends, that is Richard Simmons. We lathered him up with lots of fake tanner and shaved his legs (again), and I made those shorts as short as I could without having to reveal anything... unnecessary...? He played the part very well.
And I'm not really sure what I was. A disco girl? Maybe. I don't know. I needed a costume for our ward party so I just threw some stuff together. Meh. And of course, Kennedy was a cute little ladybug.
Justin was too busy to be creative last year, so he was just the nerd, again, which is always a hit. And Kennedy wanted to be Dorothy.
There's no place like home.
You've already seen a preview of our family costumes, this year (Kennedy's, at least), and yes, I am actually dressing up. Alas, you will have to wait for another week, or so, to see the pictures. Deal with it. :)
