Girl Chat - Favorite Halloween Costume

By now y’all should know that I always overshare on the blog and I post way more pictures than your average blogger.  When I started preparing my post for this prompt to share my favorite Halloween costume I went back and forth and just couldn’t pick a favorite, so instead of picking one, I’m going to share all of my favorites!  And guess what?  That just so happens to be almost every single costume I’ve ever worn.  Lol. 

Childhood Costumes

An aerobics instructor, Cyndi Lauper, a clown, a ballerina, a Southern belle, a Christmas present, a witch, a vampire softball player, a Catholic school girl, a Geisha… those are the things that I was for Halloween when I was little, and I may even be forgetting a couple.  Unfortunately pictures do not exist of the Cyndi Lauper get-up, but if they did, it would be on here!  Here are the pictures of my faves… and Laura, check out those sweet wire hanger braids.  ;o)

A clown when I was four-ish?

A ballerina when I was five

A Southern belle when I was seven-ish?

A Christmas present when I was eight, I think.  My mom MADE my costume out of an old box!

Adult Costumes

Okay, so I tried to narrow down my adult costumes to just my very favorite and I absolutely couldn’t because I love them all so much!  We used to go to an adult Halloween party every year before we had kids and every year we had the best time dressing up.  I, of course, always wanted to be “themed” (much to B’s dismay I’m sure) and we really did come up with some great get-ups over the years.  Enjoy! 

2004 - A witch and Shaggy... this was the one year that we didn't do a theme.

2005 - A nurse and a doctor

2006 - A Playboy bunny and Hugh Hefner... B even dyed his hair grey!

Another one from 2006... I LOVED that skirt!

2007 - A spooky bride and groom... that was one month before we got married, so we HAD to do it!

2008 - Santa's helper and a Christmas elf

2009 - Hippies.  And I LOVED that dress!  So cute.  Short, but cute.

Another one from 2009

I also couldn’t pick favorites for our kids’ costumes, so here they all are as well.  

2011 - Jacob as a pod of peas

2012 - Jacob as a vampire bat

2013 - Jacob as Elmo and Maui as Cookie Monster

2014 - Jacob as Superman, Olivia as Bat Girl, and Maui as Wonder Woman


2015 - Me with my coworkers... I'm a leopard.  :o)

2015 - Jacob as Spider Man and Olivia as Anna from Frozen

We love dressing up!
