No, I’m not hosting a costume competition. Well, not exactly. I’m asking about your household. If you’re a mom, do you put more into your kid’s costumes thank yours? (assuming you dress up) Or are you the over-the-top costume-er in your house? No kids? Do you try and out-do your co-workers?
Personally, I love Halloween, and I almost always dress up some. I’ve got all kinds of costume stuff socked away – an old poodle skirt, a clown costume, Star Trek uniforms (TNG), and even an old piece of upholstery I used as a poncho when I went as Qui-Gon Jinn one year. (Apparently I look a lot like Liam Neeson.) Other years I tweak regular clothes I have – Add a pocket protector and I’m a nerd, a little black hat and I’m a chauffeur. This year I’m planning on going as a roadie – so all I need is a concert shirt and a roll of duct tape.
I suppose I work a little harder on my costume than my kids do. My son likes simple, store-bought costumes (he’s going as bacon again this year – yes, I said bacon). My daughter has started creating her own look, putting together clothes she has with some purchased accessories to make her costume. This year she’s going as phantom of the opera, combining a cape and mask with her own dressy shirt.
How about you? I know I’ve seen some amazing costumes out there, on both kids and adults. Who has the most elaborate costume at your house?
