TEAM HALLOWEEN...

hi everyone, sorry to keep throwing Halloween in your face with my past costumes but this year with all of the decorating for our Halloween bash, I won't have time to be really creative with my costume.  Whenever we have our party, I just throw on something scary from one of our 16 bins of stuff.  The past couple years we did not have our party because my husband was in school and with the party being such a huge undertaking, we could not pull it off.   Anyway, here is Rob as a Kmart worker with an authentic Kmart vest and name tag reading, Rupert.  (ebay 10.00 bucks) We added the mullet wig, thrifted clothing and my RayBan wayfarers with the clear lens.  He wore his ear bud  all night like he was a geek on alert for a blue light special.  He is a real sport and always game when it comes to Halloween. 


Here we are in another 30 years as elderly people.  This one was a real hit at the party we attended.  My friend Jenni still talks about this one.  It was her annual party that she has for her son Peyton's birthday.  Rob and I stopped at the liquor store on the way to the party.    I stayed in character the entire time making sure I used my cane.  I had to tell the clerk that we were in costume and he looked shocked saying that he thought we were from the old country...funny

I drew really fine lines with an eye liner pencil to resemble wrinkles and a furrow between the brows....

I love how my husband is standing in this  photo,  leaning on his cane...

This was around the time Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock were dating so we dressed like them.  Everywhere we went that night people were yelling, Kid Rock and Pam. I definitely danced on the bar that evening...drunko.

This was our first Halloween together when we were dating.  We won 1st place as the dead bride and groom...we also stayed in character for this one and walked into the party  like we were walking down the aisle for our wedding and people just stopped and stared....so much fun.   The dress had paper bats glued to it and I threw leaves in my hair to resemble having just unearthed myself....boooo.  If anyone needs a costume  idea just let me know and I will be happy to help you.  These are just a few of my favorites...there are plenty more.  Have a great day and get inspired it's spooky time.  Dawn xo

Your costumes are amazing!!! I love that your husband is willing to play along, too.

I could use some decorating and recipe ideas. I'm throwing a Halloween party this year, and I don't usually decorate at all for parties, so I'm at a loss. I'd prefer not to spend tons of money on the decorations, but I'm OK with spending on food and drinks. I'd love to hear any suggestions you have!
