Boo! Halloween is just one week away! Do you have your candy and (kiddie) costumes ready? Are any adults out there dressing up? Kevin and I are dressing up on the big day. He purchased a Sasquatch costume on-line…it is pretty great. I actually need to get a pic of him in it, but here is the on-line ad photo:
Why, hello Big Foot! When this monstrosity came in the mail last week Kevin left it up in our guest bedroom. It happened to be a nice evening that day so Kevin was grilling out on our back deck when I got home from work. As usual, I headed upstairs to change, but instead of an empty bedroom I found the costume on the bed. I decided to try said furry getup on and surprise my grillin’ man. Boy oh boy, was he surprised! Aside from the part where Kevin almost had a heart attack, it was classic! Once his heart was beating regularly we laughed for about 5 minutes straight. Hopefully this bad boy will bring a few more chuckles next weekend!
I am sure you are now wondering what I am wearing…well, nothing near as cool as Big Foot. I didn’t want to spend a small fortune on something I am only going to wear once, so I am re-using a German Beer girl costume from about 3 years ago. Watch out party people, make way for Big Foot and the Beer Girl!
I saw this about a month ago and figured I should give it a try. This weekend I picked up a plain dark gray T-shirt at Target for $6 on clearance and made my own!
I started by putting the shirt on and placing painters tape where I wanted the features to be (I didn’t really want the eyeballs right on my chest). I took the shirt off and this is what I had:
I added more tape and then drew out the face on the tape:
Next I cut (be very careful not to cut the back!)…
Then the tape was pulled off, and now I have this spooktacular T-shirt:
I was thinking an orange jack-o-lantern would be cute for a little kid. Does anyone want to make their own? Get cuttin’ you only have a few days!
