Halloween Costume? Go!

I used to dress up each year for Halloween. My favorite costume was probably the monarch butterfly, because i had wings! (this was before all the cheap costume fairies with wings, no back then you made your costume). I remember being a cat several years in a row, and Clint Eastwood once (because I was lazy, had the hat and poncho thingy, and had to dress up to work a fall fair somewhere). I am sure I had others over the years, but I don't remember any of them. Now, if I could dress up as anything, I would be a Weeping Angel, not much creepier than that, be perfect for Halloween. How about you, any favorites from over the years? And what about now? So, I just handed you an unlimited budget and a seamstress to make you the ultimate perfect Halloween costume, what does she make you?

I've been a few different things, but I think my favourite is the witch. Although I haven't dressed up in a number of years, I can remember dressing up as a witch for several years in a row. I was actually thinking of doing that again this year.

I think that the creepiest costume that I ever went as was a ghost bride. I had tons of fun. Sadly, I won't be dressing us this year. We will be between houses... at least I think that I have our timing right. But I shall be ready lol... just in case.

My favourite to do is my Mime Artist costume though it meant staying in character and not talking all night but it was huge fun, and many do find mimes scary too. This year I have a non-horror costume. I'm going as Limus from the Peanuts - Charlie Brown cartoons, as he would be now, a middle aged businessman still using a security blanket and sucking his thumb.

My favorite costume was a fairy princess, that I put together. I bought an old bridesmaid dress at a thrift store for $6, bought rhinestones and sequins and glued them on the dress. I bought glitter spray and sprayed the dress and the shoes. I bought wings, a tiara and a wand, when it was all put together it was great. I volunteered in my sons kindergarten class and all the little girls in the class loved it. That was about 15 years ago.

Oh!!!! You just reminded me of some other costumes. I was a bat once for a Halloween nature walk (dad was a park ranger and they did this nature walk for years with stations of people in costumes telling a story and stuff). Once year I was Vinne the bat, one year I was a school teacher teaching a flower, and one year I was Minda the Good witch (yeah Wizard of Oz spoof that year). I had little kids telling their parents I was boo-tee-ful... was kinda embarrassing, I had glitter showing up for weeks afterwars, but the dress was fun, and waving the wand around amused me. Not as bad as the year Dad decided to play Father Winter and hung Christmas snowflakes over a track suit.... was horrible, lol
