First, my sister hosted her annual Halloween party. I had been having difficulties coming up with an idea for Scott, but when my grandmother offered me an apron, I figured it out rather quickly. If I went as Alice, Scott could go as the White Rabbit! And because I was so budget conscious this month, we spent a grand total of $1.12 on this one - and that was only because I didn't want his big head stretching out one of my headbands.
On me: American Apparel Bandeau dress (proving it is so versatile it can be worn every way... including as a costume!), white tights, black mary janes, apron (from my grandmother) and white dress shirt.
On Scott: his new navy pants, orange shirt, silver vest (from our wedding), the bow from my Shabby Apple dress, flopsy bunny ears and, of course, a pocket watch!
Today, I'm helping organize a staff party over the lunch hour, including a costume contest. While organizing that is helping me overcome my fear of showing up as the only person dressed up in my department, I do still have to contend with riding the bus. Eep! The Minnie Mouse costume came together at no cost to the board - woohoo!
On me: a dress from a costume of mine from high school, black tights & sweater, yellow shoes, some ears I threw together with the bow from my Shabby Apple dress.
Since my sister stole one of my costumes from years gone by to wear to her party, I thought I'd recap some of them for you!
