I come from a long history of crafting Halloween costumes. My mom always made ours growing up and my brother carried the tradition into adulthood winning countless bar contests with his homemade costumes.
Personally, my crowning costume glory was showing up on the first page of Google when searching for “homemade cat costume” in my Weaz outfit. (I’ve dressed as both Ralph and Weaz over the years.) It has since been bumped by far sexier cats, I guess.
Anyway, Nick and I went to Party City last night for inspiration and it was nothing short of depressing. All those lame cheap costumes stuffed in bags. It’s the worst. I picked out two to try on and then didn’t because I was so offended by their lack of originality I just threw a temper tantrum instead.
So help. What are you being for Halloween this year? What can we be?
For reference we look like this:
I am voting for Mary Poppins and the chimney sweeper or Popeye and Olive.
