Now That's a Halloween Costume!

I know. I know. We all hate vertical videos, but the costume was just too interesting to pass up posting this video. I'd love to see the details on this one.


And...to add a little comedy, here's Jack Black showing us 80 years of Halloween costumes (I know, he's on a press tour for the Goosebumps movie, and I'm assuming this is part of that). This one is slightly out there, a bit NSFW. Just so you know.


Lastly, if you're in a bind and need a Halloween costume fast, there's always this devil costume (below). I know this, because when my youngest was not quite 2, we decided to take him to a community Halloween party and--not having anticipated the party thing--I had to come up with a costume fast. I took a red headband I had lying around and a couple of pieces of red felt I shaped into horns and affixed to the headband. I dressed him in a red sweatsuit, took some red yarn and braided it into a tail with a felt arrow on the end (and just a couple of stitches to attach it to his pants). He was ready to go in just a few minutes. And as you can see, a red sweater works just fine. 

Whether you dress up or not, go to a party (or not), or simply sit at home and enjoy the parade of children decked out in their costumes, enjoy the day!

Best Wishes,

Myrna

  1. Just finished my costume for tonight's badminton. I took a big box, cut out a place for my head to go through it, slots down the sides for my arms to move (so I can swing a racquet wearing it), duct taped it everywhere, and put a giant bow and ribbons on the front. What am I dressed as? Figured it out yet? I am God's Gift to Men! Yup. I'm crazy like that.

  2. I love it! And swinging a racquet while wearing a box? I bow to your flexibility. LOL

  3. It wasn't pretty, but it was a lot of fun, Myrna! Made so many people smile. Several commented on my "bubble gum stuck to the shoe" costume last year (pink top/shorts/socks with child's sandal glue-gunned to hairband) and a couple commented on my "Paper Bag Princess" costume (brown paper bags made into a vest and skirt worn over my T-shirt and skort, with a dollar-store tiara) the year before. I DO love dressing up.
    My daughter is hosting a party tomorrow and expects me to be wearing that God forsaken box there. Nope! I'm going to the dollar store to buy some black birds, and I'm glue-gunning them to an old T-shirt, with red "blood" dripping. I will be Tippy Hedren in The Birds movie! Much easier to wear in public (and I might wear it again next year for badminton!)....

  4. You have such a creative mind! I love both the gum and Tippy Hedren costume ideas.
