I love Halloween, which I'm sure is no surprise. Dressing up in something ridiculous for a day? Sign me up! I try to make each costume better and funnier than the last, but now I'm in a bit of a pickle because I may have set the bar too high for myself. I thought it would be nice, in honor of the holiday, to share with you a few of my past Halloween moments (in order). And hopefully I can come up with something worthy of sharing this year!
2005 / David Bowie: Wearing this outfit for one night made me want to dress like this forever and ever. If only I was comfortable wearing pants, I might have gone for it. We took a million photos that night and I'm pretty much making that crazy face and dancing around in every single one. Amazing night.
2006 / Crazy Cat Lady: These photos do not do justice to the awesomeness of that nightgown and robe set. It had cats on it!! It was fun to walk around dressed like this and see the disturbed looks on the faces around me. I stayed in character all evening, so maybe they weren't sure I was even wearing a costume.
2007 / Todd Rundgren (sort of): Okay, so I was supposed to be dressed as Todd Rundgren here, and I think the flamboyant jumpsuit worked but the rest of the look skewed a bit Elton John + creepy little boy from the 70's. But I really, really, really wanted to wear that jumpsuit.
2008 / Halloween Enthusiast: This is perhaps my favorite costume ever. I was going for "crazy suburban mom who loves Halloween too much," and it worked so well that nobody recognized me. And this particular photo (in which I seem to be paying homage to Amy Sedaris) will always bring back the fondest memories. I was even thinking that from now on I would just dress up as a holiday enthusiast every year until I run out of holidays. "Christmas Enthusiast" is a contender for this year's costume, but it's still wide open...
What are you going to be for Halloween?
