|I carved this pumpkin one year, but I didn't take my own photo. This one is from here.|
Here's a sneak peek at the costumes I'm working on for this weekend:
Haha! My table is one crafty, sequiny, sticky, fuzzy, glue-smell-gonna-make-you-high mess. I am not usually into crafts. I skip over blog posts that go too far down Hobby Lobby lane. But yesterday I went nuts at Hobby Lobby, and my crafty streak has exploded all over the place. I have to say, I'm pretty proud of how that monster fish head is looking. What do you guys think of couple costumes? Pretty cheesy? So expected? I know. Me too. But me and the husb are doing it anyway. In this case, his costume is like the set up to the joke, and mine is like the punch line. I think it's okay, or at least, it doesn't make you barf as much as if we went as Ketchup and Mustard or something.
Now I know Halloween is also a time of stress for a lot of you, and that if you have to hear the question, "What are you going to be for Halloween?" one more time you might burst a blood vessel in your head because you still have no idea and no time to make anything. So just remember, if you can't construct a totally awesome costume at a moment's notice, you can still eat a lot of candy corn, put on a hat or a fake mustache and go out and enjoy looking at other people's costumes. Then (and here's the important part) you have to focus on not feeling like a failure, but instead think smugly to yourself, "Wow, what kind of dorks have the free time to put together a costume like that?" It can be quite gratifying. See? Halloween is for everyone.
