The sun is beginning to set and soon all the trick-or-treaters will be out and about. I love seeing all the costumes and the reactions on people's faces when our chubby bulldog, Roxy, goes wobbling out the front door to greet them. Roxy is going to be a troll, which is what she was last year too, and it's such a riot.
Our neighbor had a Halloween party last night and I'm very happy to tell you that Rob won the 1st place prize for Best Costume. I was so excited Rob won because he NEVER gets into costume. Also, the costume was my idea and we made it ourselves - so that was cool too. Originally, Rob was going to throw a sheet over his head and be a ghost...how freaking boring is that? Right? Anyhow, I convinced him to be Edward Scissorhands - and taking a look at a couple images of Edward was all it took.
I scowered through the racks and bins at a couple local thrift stores to find what I needed for our costumes. Luckily, I found most of the props at the thrift shops. However, I did require a trip to Joann Fabrics and a Halloween store.
Check us out...how cute is Roxy! She's special.
|Detail is everything and execution is no joke. I printed out pictures |
of Edward so we could mirror his character as best as possible.
|Rob has the perfect Edward body shape too!|
|This is my sister and I. Check out her wind blown make-up job.|
For never really being into dressing up for Halloween, I think we did pretty good. And Rob's 1st place prize is proof that he killed the competiton. He's already throwing around ideas for next year's costume.
I hope you have a safe and Happy Halloween.
