Halloween Costumes | Part 2

I will admit “Part 2” almost didn’t happen. I’ve been so overwhelmed the last week and a half. This weekend is my birthday so hopefully I can calm down and spend the rest of October relaxing and enjoying the fall festivities! If you miss Part 1 of the costume series you can catch up here! Part 3 will be happening the Wednesday before Halloween!

Part 2 is all about you! Last week I talked about couples/group costumes but today we’re focusing on the individual. Not everyone wants to partner up and I totally get it- the more accolades for you and your creativity! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hipster Zombie
One year I had a Halloween Murder Mystery Party and I dictated the costumes. My brother was “Zedd Undeade”- a hipster zombie that owned a coffee shop. I’d say he pulled it off flawlessly with some gray paint and suspenders.

Biker Dude
My mom is a Halloween master. She helped my brother put together the zombie costume and her werewolf outfit is untouchable. Last year she decided to be a biker dude. My dad was so disturbed. I can’t blame him… the chest hair is just creepy!

Day of the Dead Skeletons
My friend Dana is the cutest. She’s crafty and creative and such a fun soul to be around! When she and her husband Jamie showed up last year as Day of the Dead skeletons I was SO impressed (but not the least bit surprised).

Older Version of Yourself
Kayla’s family owns a nursing home empire. I’m only kind of kidding. Her costume was a breeze to outfit since she had all the gear- including the apple juice-filled catheter. Ew!

An Owl, Dobby the House Elf, & Sushi
Amanda’s owl was a simple and warm costume (good for chilly Halloween nights), but super detailed with the patches of fabric!

Dana’s Dobby’s creativity at work again! Aren’t her ears the cutest?? 10 points to Ravenclaw!

Caroline made her costume just before we stepped out for the evening. She’s the most adorable little bite of sushi I’ve ever seen!

My husband brought a new Halloween costume idea to the table last weekend so now we might not do the couples thing. Good thing we starting talking about this in September! Ha!

What was your favorite Halloween costume as a child?

    1. Hahaha! My friends (and mom) are so great at the Halloween game! I almost cried when I saw Dana prance into our college apartment with Dobby ears! She’s amazing at Halloween! My mom is a first grade teacher so she dresses up every year as something awesome!

    1. I love throwing a Halloween Party because I know my adult friends need somewhere to go and dress up- it’s not just a kids thing! Personally, I also love that none of us are interested in the “slutty nurse/maid/cop” outfits- all my friends are so hands-on and creative!! Yay!
