Halloween Week Day 3: Costumes

Everyone's favorite part of Halloween...Costumes! Let's talk about previous costumes Josh and I have done. I've actually been most excited to share this with you guys! 

{next couple of pictures are personal}
Year 1: Hershey Kiss and Milton Hershey (Who kind of looked like Hitler)

(Sorry I didn't have time to rotate this.) Josh handed out Hershey Kisses all night and made a cool name tag for himself.

Year 2: We were a Mac and a PC.
If you remember that's when those commercials were SUPER popular. Josh actually completely made these computers out of canvas. This was days before blogging so there are no how to instructions! 

Year 3: Last year we were (like many others) Soap and a Loofah. It took me 4 straight hours to make my costume. If anyone wants instructions just let me know! We used a sheet to cover a box for Josh and added bubble wrap to look like bubbles on his soap. I also made that headband myself.

I first thought of the idea of being the cookie monster. Well because I love this costume. Josh wasn't pleased with the idea. He didn't want to be a cookie.

I loved this idea. Josh didn't because last year he was so hot in that bulky costume and struggled getting around.

I didn't even show Josh this idea...because I can't see him in this little dress ha!

Once again I loved this idea, but that costume is bulky.

I begged Josh for this one. I didn't think it was too bulky, but apparently he did. This is the ONE thing that Josh is opinionated about and he is down right stubborn. I do however want him to be comfortable and having fun in whatever he wears so I give in.

Then I found this! I could be an adorable deer and Josh could be a hunter (he already has all the gear and will be comfortable) His other big issue was that being new in Kentucky we won't even know people to go out with so why are we dressing up. So this is perfect. 

I am still trying to decide how I am going to do my makeup and antlers. If anyone has suggestions please feel free to share!

I found this video that I THINK I am going to model my makeup after. I might just make my antlers out of tinfoil, duck tape, and spray paint them. Can't wait to share what I come up with!

****VERY RECENT UPDATE: Josh now wants to be a zombie. (For those of you who watch The Walking Dead and love it as we do, you understand his new obsession). We will see if I will be able to pull off Zombie make-up. I will be watching tons and tons of youtube tutorial videos.

  2. This is such a fun idea! I love the soap and loofa one! I wish Tyler and I were dressing up. However our alma matter has homecoming the weekend before halloween so we will be there and don't really have any parties to go too! The deer and hunter costume is a great idea, and it sounds like he is up for it! Have fun! Also, I replied to your question about the pinterest button on my blog.
