I don't dress up for Halloween


Why? Pure laziness. And poverty. If I had tons of cash to blow on a really cool outfit I'd only wear once I'd probably be cool with my own wedding too but if you'd just ask my dh you'd know I didn't groove on that whole shebang either. Why don't guys listen when you say the words "Elope to Vegas"? Anyway the costume, I know there are those who do it every year, that's nuts! If I had my choice I like the stuff that's done as a group, like when people do all of the cast of the Wizard of Oz or that type thing. I was flitting on the internet (as per the usual, duh) and remembered this seller on ebay, Wearydrearies, I used to love and my friend (the one with the clean desk) found her stuff on a website. Of course she had some stuff up that had a Halloween theme. Dresses she made like a pumpkin, Alice in Wonderland, Bat, yeah I love her raggedy stuff. Have for years. She's an artist, not really a seamstress but I'm sure she makes her living off of what she sells on ebay. Why you ask? I've never seen her dresses sell for less than $125. And if you order directly from her it's $200. YEGAK! Now you know why I've never owned a single thrashed dress from her. Yeah, I know, the clothing she makes is a bit odd but it's a style and I was all about the goth scene back in the day ya know. It's a bit left of center but center was never really something I aimed at anyway so I figure eh, what the hell right? Can't you just see me dressed up as a pumpkin? No? Yeah I didn't think so either.

Oh just go for it! That is one Sexy pumkin! Is there a matching one for your hubby! "Peter" perhaps! LOL! Oh that sounds bad. Well you know what I mean! Ok back to the costume before I get in trouble! I would like to go to a halloween costume part just once. A cool one where people dress up, so everyone looks like they tried! I think it would be fun. No way my hubby would though, he'd kick me out and speed off!! he he!

And Yes his hat is supposed to be orange!! He still has like 5 old ones! I don't understand why he doesn't just toss them? Men!

That is a great costume! I don't quite have the confidence for that but if you do--DO IT! I love it!

Hell if I find the spare $200 lying about I'll email the woman and buy the sucker but I don't see that happening in the anywhere near future. Hell, if I can find the orange negligee somewhere I'll make the damn thing myself. Anyone see something that shade of orange in a nighty store lately?
