Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays.  I love the fantastical decorations, the candy, the pumpkins, and especially the costumes.  (Yes, I'm 26 and still get giddy about dressing up!)

Every year I have my costume planned well ahead of time; sometimes I'll even wear two costumes per year.  And it's hardly ever something that I buy at the store.  I like to make my Halloween costumes the old fashioned way... putting together pieces that come right out of my closet! (Sometimes given a boost with a few odds and ends bought from a costume shop)

But, with all of the things that were going on this year I didn't really think about my costume at all.  I wasn't even sure if we were going to do anything for it.  But, J found this fantastic event for us to go to on Halloween weekend: a Monster Bash themed Murder Mystery at a castle!

We even get to dress up!

I had to scramble to come up with ideas, and was contemplating a few possible outfits.  But, tonight, I randomly came up with another costume idea, and this one really takes the cake!

Here are some pictures of my Halloween costumes throughout the last few years.  I will put up a teaser of this year's Halloween costume at the end!  (To be revealed in full after Halloween)

Drum roll please..... part of my Halloween 2010 costume.
What, oh what, could I possibly be?!?!

What are your plans for Halloween this year?


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one giddy about dressing up!! Halloween is my favorite time of the year as well.

    I am planning on going as either:

    1) Zombie
    2) A 60's Modern woman (with crazy wig, dress, and high knee boots).

    Haven't decided yet ;)

  2. Ooh yay!! Both sound great! You have to post pix afterwards. =D
