Come on--we know it's September, but that begins the excitement for autumn, chilly nights, and the much thought about--Halloween costume!
I'm pretty sick of the Halloween shops I've run into each year because I can't find the unique costumes. I keep finding the same nurse and milkmaid costume. Jeez! So, I'm excited to introduce y'all to my new naughty splurge--Fright Catalog. You'll see their button on the left-hand side on my blog to remind you to get shopping for your costume now so you can enjoy October without stressing last minute.
They have all the other things like props and decorations and party supplies--all also unique and original, but the costumes are what I want to focus on since we all know that Halloween will be set on a day that makes Halloween parties all weekend quite possible and probable.
Here's just some of the fun stuff--
(This Medussa one actually goes for less than the barely-there Milk Maid ones at other Halloween shops that will remain unnamed).
I want the Medussa one so cool!ReplyDelete
I wish I lived in America you guys make hallowen into a proper holiday, here its only for kids really, though that wont stop me getting dressed up and finding a party, I LOVE IT!
Hey Lisa; That would suck. I hope other countries catch up with the Halloween fun. It's just such a blast! I have a steampunk ghost costume put together, but no where to go yet and no one to go with. (sigh). Hopefully by then I can get a date and an occasion.ReplyDelete
I really like that first one! :)ReplyDelete
It might be harder to pick up a girl in that costume than, say, the Jack Sparrow Pirate one. Hee heeReplyDelete
I might go as a religious right-winger this year, spouting off gems like "Hurricanes are God's way of punishing you!"ReplyDelete
Ironically, most tornadoes happen in the bible belt... oh well...
I think I can have fun in the last costume.ReplyDelete
LII; I wonder if they even celebrate Halloween where you are. Oh, what I would give to be in a place that feels and smells like Halloween and is chilly and has changing leaves and burning fires and a real autumn! I'm sure up there, by Halloween it's freaking cold.ReplyDelete
I could see you doing a pirate gal real well!
I don't think I've ever seen the Milkmaid costume. Maybe I just spaced it.ReplyDelete
The Halloween Express and Spirit Halloween stores are starting to open in up in the abandoned buildings around here. This is always an exciting time for me! I've never bought anything from one of those stores, but they're fun to look in.
That's the best Medusa costume I've ever seen!
i want to be a cowboy, baby... i have the hat, the rest is optional... yee-ha!ReplyDelete
Cowboy--you must take a picture! When I was in Tombstone with all the cowboy reenactors, Julie almost had to pull me away. I stood there like a dumb tween at a Justin Beiber concert, mouth agape, sighing, blushing....ReplyDelete
Spare a thought for those us in the Southern Hemisphere, who love Halloween. Not only is it only superficially recognized in Australia, but it will be Springtime, here!ReplyDelete
I don't let any of the obstacles deter me, however. I carve a pumpkin each year, although I have to buy an imported U.S. orange pumpkin, which can cost up to $30.00!!! The supermarkets bring a small quantity in for the few diehards amongst us, then gouge us on the price!
Very cool sis! By the way.....I'm kinda sorta back!ReplyDelete
I'm thinking something simple like fig-leafsReplyDelete
LGH; That does suck! Our crafts stores in Halloween time have carvable fake pumpkins. I love them. You can use a battery-operated light in them and keep it and use it year to year.ReplyDelete
Now, you're supposed to say "it'd take a pile of leaves for my costume."
okay, it will be soon... but i want to go for the steam-punk cowboy version... i have been building it for a few months.ReplyDelete
though i don't think i will make you swoon...
Thank you for sharing...will be checking out. That Medusa costume is incredible!ReplyDelete
I think I'll dress up as a photographer for Halloween... it's an easy costume to assemble, plus I'll have my camera handy just in case a sexy Medusa or pirate lady shows up.ReplyDelete
where do you get the fabric from? I want to have Ghost Costume and Ive been to several halloween stores and craft shops, and no one had any idea what I was looking for..ReplyDelete
