YOU GUYS. It is October 11th and I do not yet have a Halloween costume.
THIS IS SERIOUS BUSINESS. Last year for some reason I was not in the “Halloween Spirit” and did not buy a costume or plan ahead in any way. Cue the day of Halloween and of course I was invited to a party and of course I had to scramble for a costume. I ended up being a stupid cat.
HOW LAME. I refuse to be that lame again. This year, I am wearing a real costume, one that requires more effort than drawing whiskers on my face with eyeliner. The only question is... what should I be?!
I really want to be a cupcake! But this costume is all sold out on the Target website. How cute would it be with glitter tights and hot pink heels?
I could be a flapper. God knows I like wearing feather boas.
Or I could be a... poodle skirt girl? What IS this? A 1960s high school student? If I can't even figure it out myself, what would I tell people when they asked me what I was?
Oooh, I could be Hermione Granger! (But just writing her name gets me sad that the books and movies are over and I really don’t want to spent my whole night crying...)
Do you like any of these? Leave your vote in the comments, OR if you have a better suggestion, I’m open to that as well. In recent years I’ve been a ballerina, an 80’s rockstar, a Mad Men-era housewife (with homemade cupcakes), Pebbles Flinstone, and a lot of other dumb things. I like costumes that involve glitter and sparkles (obv) and I am not opposed to handmaking part of it.
I JUST DON’T WANT TO BE A CAT!
