Question of the Day:

What was the best Halloween costume you ever wore?

    I know the answer to this right away. We go to a costume party every year at some friends’ house, and a few years ago John and I were a chicken and an egg. I bought a hooded sweatshirt and covered it in feathers. Then I put a beak on the hood part, and I wore yellow pants. I made chicken feet out of felt and attached them to my shoes. John wore a black shirt and pants, and I made a fried egg out of felt and attached it to the front. It was my favorite. His costume last year was even better, but I’ll let him tell that story…

    When I was in 5th grade or so, my mom put me in a neck brace, ace bandages, fake stitches and bruises etc… Everyone thought I’d been in a car wreck. Won the contest that year. 🙂 Other favorite was the year I went as Ms. Pacman.

    I usually alternated each year between being a witch and a vampire. Being Paris Hilton for Kelly’s party a couple years ago was pretty fun, though. Bizarre, but fun.

    At our annual costume party last year, I was a vending machine. I thought it was a good idea and looked online to see what others had done. I found all sorts of elaborate vending machine costumes made from cardboard that made the costume look like a real vending machine. However, those were far too much work, and I thought it would be nice to actually be able to sit down at the costume party. So, I printed out some numbers and letters to simulate the keypad and some letter-number combinations (like B7) to place under each item. I then taped these numbers and letters plus about 9 bags of chips to a black shirt. It was a big hit at the party. The best part was getting to eat my costume (well, just the chips) when we got home.

    When I was 5, I was a pirate. That was probably my favorite. I wore one of my mom’s silky button up 80’s shirts and a big belt, stretch pants, and a bandana on my head. My mom drew a black eye and some stitches on my cheek. Mostly, I was super psyched to have a cardboard sword in order to ‘fight’ with my cousins all night.

    When I was a teenager, I made a Tin Man costume out of posterboard and silver spray paint. It’s the first costume I ever made by hand, and I got a lot of compliments on it. I think this was the start of my current costume making mania.

    Willy Wonka. From the new film. I had a blast putting that costume together. I even had the purple nitrile gloves. I think I had well over a hundred dollars in the whole getup, which would be why I will not be dressing up this year.

    I think my favorite was Rosie the Riveter. I even got my grandpa’s old lunchbox and put “rosie” on it with white duct tape so that it looked like it was painted on.

    Dan went as “Wendy” from Wendy’s a couple of years ago. All he did was throw the wendy wig on, but he won the costume contest at the party because he bought frosty’s for everyone!
