It’s Halloween today. I like dressing up, so you’d think I’d make a bigger deal out of Halloween than I do. (Mostly I just like shopping after halloween for deals! ) But if you invite me to a party, I’ll come up with a costume. Anyway, here’s some costumes I’ve thrown together over the years. First up, Xena Warrior Princess. I wanted to go as Red Sonja that year, but I did a quick survey of my friends in Quebec and determined most people wouldn’t know who that was, so Xena won. (Which is good, cuz I don’t need a wig to be Xena!)
Second, I went to a party with some people I barely knew, so I threw together this witch costume, and ended up swapping hats with a sea captain somewhere along the way.
Next up is the storied sea nymph costume that I break out every few years, but things have never gotten out of hand the way they did that first year I wore that costume. (We shan’t get into that.)
Finally, me and my husband had a surprise wedding in Newfoundland one summer, so my brother Adam and family didn’t attend, cuz they live in Ontario. They invited us over for a halloween party that year, (in a cabin that has a Tickle Trunk Room!) so we dove into the tickle trunk and dressed up. Turns out, my brother and his in-laws had prepared a surprise wedding for us! With cake and everything!
So we have a very ridiculous set of wedding pictures from that night.
I believe I was dressed up as 1950s idea of people in 2012.
