With Halloween just around the corner, why not share some past costume ideas?
Some are store bought, some are handmade, some are just put together in a short time frame.
You'll get to see a lot of couple costumes... and see how cute we are ;)
Our First Year Together - 2007:
Knife Thrower and His Assistant
Gosh, I feel so old looking at these! This is six years ago!!
I've worn this costume many times since.
Everyone appreciates this costume, as a couple or as a solo.
(Here's where we got a little creative)
Officer Sweetheart & Captain Sour Tart
This shirt was gifted to me by Matt's aunt and uncle - On the name tag, it actually says "Officer Sweetheart", so we went with it! It's actually become one of my favorite costumes.
Do you see my duty belt?
My Night Stick: Unicorn Lollipop, Bullets: Gumballs, Tickets: Candy Buttons, Handcuffs: Heart Shaped Cookie Cutters, Keys: Measuring Spoons
We didn't have plans this year... We were in the middle of wedding planning at this time.
So I threw this together to wear to work:
What I wore to work:
Since no one else was dressing up this year, I still wanted to participate without going crazy...
Can you guess what I am?
A Skeleton Key!
That weekend, we had a party to attend.
Matt and I went as zombies, but I have no photos of us together!
Zombies is the ultimate, last minute costume.
Quick trip to the thrift store, fake blood, and some make up.
I went for a 50's vibe, wearing a polka dot dress, cardi, and pumps;
although you can't really see that here:
Now we'll skip to 2012:
(We did absolutely nothing in 2011)
This is a couples costume that we used to make a special announcement:
Matt got his dream job back as an officer! And the town he is working for has "Fox" in it ;)
And I had a special boy's birthday party to attend that year that Matt couldn't make it to:
So here was my better half that night:
Dorothy and The Tin (wo)Man
I'm still hoping to dress up as something this year... Although it may be a repeat... I only have plans to dress up for work... Boring, I know...
Anyone want to come over and watch scary movies with me??
