How Many Costumes Can You Wear In One Weekend?

happy halloween!

yes, tara and i made matching pinata costumes, as per our 101 list.  we always buy super cute costumes, but this year we decided to be matching and we decided to make our own pinata costumes.  we used fabric glue to attach streamers to dresses.  but ultimately we failed.


they were impossible to get on and off without ripping shreds of streamers off.  if we had worn them out, they wouldn't have even made it to the bar.  in hindsight, maybe we should have found zip up dresses to glue the streamers to!  so we wore them in the apartment for pictures (i will forever be cleaning up pieces of costume), and then we gave up and wore other homemade costumes.  but we're still checking it off the 101 list.

so friday i was ke$ha and tara was a devil.  this is not my first year as ke$ha, because it's an easy costume and i happen to think i make a great ke$ha.



our friend ryan was clark kent.


for some reason i don't have photos of our friend james who was also out with us.  james is a writer (like, actual books) and he's going to start a blog by the end of this year to promote said books and also write entertaining stories.  apparently starting a blog during bar exam prep is the thing to do.  not a lifestyle blog, although he does have some fantastic stories based on his life stored up.  i'll let you guys know when he starts his blog up so you can say hi.  (or say hi in the comments, he reads here.  because i demand all my friends read my blog.)

anyway.  saturday with my poor scarred for life door lady.  bob the builder (billy claims construction worker, but we said bob the builder), devil (no idea where my horns are in this photo i think i forgot them), witch, clark kent.



and of course, hawkeye as an iowa hawkeyes football player at her day care's halloween party.  tara and i wore hawkeye clothes too, it was game day after all.





what was your halloween costume?!  did you wear more than one?

  1. OMG super cute! I love all the costumes especially Hawkeye's. This has been the suckiest Halloween, I didn't get to dress up at all, and we have tornado weather tomorrow which makes me want to spend the day hiding in my closet.

  2. Okay, the pinata costume is a seriously cute idea! And they look great. I imagine they ARE a lot to clean up though... sheesh.

    Happy Halloween! :)

    Best,

  23. The pinata costumes are a lot of fun! It's too bad you couldn't wear them out!

  24. The pinata costumes are such a cool idea! But I can see where it might be an issue going to the bathroom and such. The dress idea might have been easier. O well, you made it work and had fun still!
