I love Halloween. I just do. I’m not a creepy creep or anything, but how fun is dressing up in a costume, celebrating for basically no reason and having an excuse to eat candy? I heard that Halloween candy doesn’t have any calories – don’t worry, it’s true because it’s Science.
Anyway, what are y’all dressing up as this year? I have to admit, as much as I love the holiday, it has been quite some time since I actually invested time into a great, creative costume. Last year I was a goth (never again) and the year before I was a hippie… tooootally unique and creative, right?
When I was a child, my mom came up with the craftiest most inventive costumes for us and we made them right at home! Never any of that store-bought junk. I love that I have such fun memories of scooping out pumpkin goop and watching to see what my dad would create when he carved them. I’m one of four kids, so we’d get one short fat pumpkin and one tall skinny one and then each sibling would draw for two facial features to design [eyebrows, eyes, nose, smile]. Love it.
Okay but seriously, Halloween is such a short time away and I’ve been watching a LOT of Ghost Whisperer and the ABC Halloween movie marathon in preparation, so send me your costume ideas!
