Costumes From Halloweens Past

Being the procrastinator that I am, it's no surprise that year after year I wait until the night before Halloween to whip together a costume. Here's a sampling of some of my finest work.

#1 BONELESS BUFFALO WINGS
Orange towels, BW3 napkins, BW3 buckets, some wings made out of cardboard, and some hot sauce smeared on our face. That last addition was a terrible idea.


#2 JILLIAN & BOB, AND A CONTESTANT FROM BIGGEST LOSER
We went to a party that night (without the baby) and no one had a clue who we were. Even after we told them they still looked puzzled. Costume FAIL!


3. BUCKET OF SUDS AND A (4-LEGGED) MOP
Wore this for my Halloween party at work one year. We cleaned up in the costume contest!! No. Not really. Not at all. Not even honorable mention. I'm not bitter.


4. RICHARD SIMMONS
Also dressed my dog up like this one time:


5. CASH 4 GOLD
I picked up this yellow uni at the thrift store the night before my work party. I tossed and turned all night thinking of what I could be... it came down to this. Pure gold. Cash 4 Gold!! 


6. NAPOLEON & DEB... & TOTS
We owe the success of this costumer to our friend Laura -- she was my lifeline to a pink caboodle! Oh and also to Walmart for the moon boots.




7. THIS YEAR'S COSTUME
I still have one more day...
