When it comes to Halloween, I am a middle-of-the-roader. I definitely don’t hate the holiday. But I find myself skipping Halloween parties all too often due to lack of a costume.
Staying home and eating cupcakes wouldn’t be the worst thing.
This year, I have two Halloween parties I’d like to attend – one of which is Eliza‘s annual fete. She LOVES Halloween and always has superb costumes. I feel pressure to come up with something good.
Amazon has suggested that I be a nun and has approximately 200 nun costume options. For once, I am not exaggerating.
You can be a sexy nun. A full-figure nun. A sexy full-figure nun. All of these.
Spoiler: I’m not going to be a nun. Or a flamingo. I won’t be spending $950 on a costume, and I won’t be wearing a burqa – that is not a costume, you guys.
Should I be a cat lady?
Do you have a Halloween costume? What is it?
So, what will I be? Wait and see.

I dressed up as Horatio Caine from CSI once – it was brilliant 🙂 Couldn’t find a ginger wig though so spent two days painstakingly highlighting a blond wig orange. Trimmed off a couple of bits and used those as chest hair. (Which resulted in a very nice rash) And put the CSI theme tune on my phone as my entry – was the most popular girl at the party haha! Beat the crap out of “sexy” everything!
I don’t do costumes unless forced, which happens far too frequently at work. My husband, after winning last year’s work contest dressed as a Jedi Knight, has been working for weeks on this year’s costume. Magneto. My hands are raw from sanding, and sanding, and sanding the stupid Magneto helmet. I should get some kind of costume credit for that.
He owes you big time
