It's the witching hour. Perhaps I should buy some holy water...

Okay, so technically Halloween is tomorrow. Whatever.

This year's costume is gonna be pretty cool, but I think last year's costumes were the best...

We dressed up as the Scooby Doo Gang, minus Shaggy and Velma.

Because it's Friday and I feel like keeping shit simple due to my forget-my-crotch-if-I-didn't-have-it-permanently-attached-to-my-handbody mentality, here are our costumes from last year!

Scooby Doo! Is this not the cutest costume?! It cost me like $40 on Ebay, but it was totally worth it.

Schmexy Daphne Blake - We did a sort of 'updated' version instead of the traditional Fred and Daph. Because I couldn't find a Daph dress I liked...

Erf, however, looked fantastic in stressed vintage jeans, his blue/white shirt, polo and the handmade red/orange ascot. No lie, I sewed it by hand the night before and I used my flatiron to iron it flat. Ghetto rig, FTW! Also, I love him bleach blonde.

The Scooby Gang - I thought it was a cute effect.

This year Erflet is going to be a ninja, and I'm going to be his victim. I do well with makeup effects - black eyes, split lips, cuts and bruises, here I come! Well, tomorrow anyhow. We're going to our niece's birthday party. Me dressing up as having had the shit kicked out of me at a kid's party = win, don't you agree?

Because our boss says that for Halloween I could only dress up as a receptionist. We are a law office, after all. Even if we're going out to have a long drinking lunch fairly soon. ;)

Thanks! :) It was fun, but we just couldn't come up with another family theme this year. Next year I hope to get back into it!

Mrs Soup said...

@Mrs Soup - Thanks! He takes us out for drinking lunches usually every Friday unless there's court.

@Susan & ButifulMess - Thanks, I'm really excited about giving myself a fake ass-kicking!

Bwahahaha! I was going to do Britney the year I was pregnant with Alex, but Dave wouldn't do K-Fed because he's TOTALLY a party pooper. DAMN HIM!

Dave, damn it! That would have been THE BEST COSTUME EVER. Except, perhaps, the 4 year old who dressed up as Jareth the Goblin King from Labyrinth. That was wicked sweet.
