Flappers, pirates, heroes, oh my!

Ahh Halloween is almost upon us.

Lets take a look back at past Halloween's since 2009...because before that everything was just a hot mess in my life. 2009 = Caleb and I started dating. AKA -  Caleb is the glue in my life.

For some reason we thought it was a great idea to go as Dave Thomas and Wendy. We realized too late that we were playing father-daughter...that's not creepy, right? This meant I basically had to find a rag doll costume and de-sluttify it. Add some white and red striped leggings under that skirt? Voila! 
Caleb also saw it fit to spray paint his entire head of hair, and facial hair white... let me tell you, it took like a week to come out.


The next year, 2010, I borrowed a costume from a friend of a friend and went as a flapper. For some odd reason...Caleb went as a bowling ball. He tried desperately to make me go as a bowling pin. No thanks, babe.

Also see below, Jared and Erin win best costume EVAAA! 

Can someone please tell Caleb those look like boobs...not eyes.

The next year, 2011...Caleb and I got kind of creative on a budget.

Yes, those are Mens boxers from Walmart, but they were $5 and Caleb made that impressive "shield" from cardboard. We win! ;)


Erin...er, Cleopatra, and I!

On ACTUAL Halloween, I helped Caleb's family pass out candy...and threw on a witch hat. Totally a costume, right?!


& this was last year... 2012. Caleb and I hadn't thought about our costume basically until the day of. So, what did we do? Headed to Walmart, Spencers, etc...and made us some new superhero costumes...AGAIN.

Batman and Robin, y'all.


Freaky thing is...dude totally sounds like batman when he tries.


& there's Jared and Erin, the pirates!

& we usually end the night with glow sticks...its kind of our thing!

I hope everyone has a safe Halloween next week!

  2. Gahh I just LOVE costumes! And couple costumes are always so fun :-) My best friend and I once went as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and had the best time! It was a competition to us to have the most unique costumes haha (we got beat out by the Trolls that year - jerks). You all look like you have so much fun during Halloween!

  3. So fun! Love the last minute Batman and Robin duo. I was Wendy a few years ago, but Drew went as the Frisch's big boy instead of Dave. Haha. Yeah we totally won best couples costume that year.

Last year Peter and I finally did a couples one..we were ice climbers from Mario, I had no idea who they were but we got to dress in puffy jackets and kept warm :) They were really fun to make together too! I have no idea what to be this year eek!

  16. I can't decide if I want to laugh or groan at the Dave Thomas/Wendy thing. Yes, it's a good idea, but yes, there was an unintentional creep factor. Tell me he didn't use actual spray paint?

  19. YOU WERE ME FOR HALLOWEEN LAST YEAR?! I keep trying to make Dom be Batman so I can be Robin, but he's boring and says Halloween is for kids so we have NEVER dressed up! SO sad!!

  20. Hahahaha! They totally look like boobs! I'm so jealous, I love love love Halloween and I always have to nag Hal to dress up. You guys make it look so fun, maybe I'll show him this to get him to do it with me. I think I'm going as Liz lemon this year. All I need is a bucket of cheetos. I love that you said de slutify, it's so true, they're all so slutty.
