So, this is my first time linking up at the Tuesday10 with Lena B, Actually. This week's theme is Halloween costumes and I knew I had to jump right in there! ;) I love Halloween. I have since I was a kid. Every fall I would toss around my ideas with my mom for that year's perfect Halloween costume. My mom is crafty and a bit of seamstress, so we never wore store bought costumes. I have fond memories of my mother sewing myself and my Cabbage Patch doll matching yellow princess dresses to wear for trick or treat one year. And there was the year I HAD to be a mermaid. Using wire and sparkly mesh, that woman made me a mermaid tail. There was also the year that I was a Rubik's cube fashioned from a huge cardboard box with pieces of colored construction paper glued to it's sides to make the squares. These days I go with store bought costumes. I cannot sew, and I am not an entirely crafty person. But I do still like to get as creative as I can each Halloween. My parents host an annual costume party, so I still have a reason to dress up even at 34. ;)
I couldn't find 10 photos of me in my Halloween costumes, but I did find 6! I present them to you all below in no particular order...
This year's costume- A Geisha Girl
A Flapper (my husband, then boyfriend was a mobster ;) )
Okay, so this was not for Halloween. I wore this Tinkerbell get-up while I was in Disney a couple of years ago. But YEARS ago, I did dress up like Tinkerbell once for Halloween- that is the very same dress I wore then too actually.
Last year I dressed up as a knocked up pirate wench. I was pregnant with baby girl then.
Oh, my younger days... ;)
