Do you costume up for Halloween?

Last night we went to a Halloween Party ... didn't have a lot of time to get ready - got home at 7:30, party started at 8 ....... so T-O-G-A! Generally, we go all out ... I have made Elvis and Marilyn costumes, vikings (with full headgear), Popeye and Olive Oyl, rum & coke, Courtney Love in a heroin overdose (complete with the goo from a glowstick in a syringe protruding from my arm) ... we are hard-core costumers, and I feel you either go big, or stay home! so these costumes to me were a cop-out, and I was a little embarrassed to have taken the easy way out. But, this cracks me up, people loved them, and asked if I made them -- People, they are sheets! they are togas! Dead easy!)


T. helped me make my costume for going to schools tomorrow and Tuesday ... I am a fish tank! (found the cute hat, and wanted to wear it, so what else could I be?!) When I wear it to the schools, I will be a bit more dressed for the occasion ... probably a shirt to match the fish on my head or in blue, and black pants.

I loves me some Halloween! My hubby and I used to get all decked out too...we haven't done it in a few years, and I miss it. I think the toga's were awesome. And the fish tank is adorable.
