Halloween is my favorite holiday. I don't get crazy yet with the decorations (no fake bodies hanging from the roof or anything, at least not while my kids are young), though I did get some 3D bats to stick to the front door. When we buy a house again, I'll probably go more all-out.
But it's time to think of costumes. I love dressing up; my husband not so much—the man's idea of a costume is a pin that says "This is my costume." Cupcake says she wants to be a butterfly, which she was already two years ago. An easy costume, though I'd love to see her as something else. I wanted to dress up Sunshine as Eddie Munster because the front of her hair can easily be made to look like a widow's peak, but no one else is on board. I can't understand why. So, I might do a homemade candy corn costume for her; it will be so cheap and simple.
Are you someone who likes easy costumes? Then here's your easy costume. A turkey head mask from Fred Flare. I think by putting the model in a chef uniform, they missed a golden opportunity to tie into this year's 90s nostalgia:
For him and for her! All you need to be Joey are jeans, a black t-shirt, and black vest. To be Monica: put on black pants and a green shirt, though really, you could wear anything because the crux of the costume are the giant sunglasses and red fez. Just watch out for that reduced peripheral vision and breathing.
I need to figure out my costume still. Do you know what you're going as?
mom, wife, market editor, crazy person.
