It's time to start thinking about Halloween costumes. If you're like me, and really love to dress up, you've been thinking about your costume for awhile. Mine is going to be scary, funny, and yes, there will be pictures here on my blog. My guilty little secret is, I like to dress kind of sleazy on Halloween. I view it as a good opportunity to strut my stuff, while having my face sufficiently disguised so no one recognizes me. I can be cute, funny, or scary, depending on my mood each year, but I like to show some skin.
One of the best parts of designing a costume is going to the thrift store. I often have to also make a trip to a discount store or my local, temporary Halloween shop, but I try to get most of my ensemble at Goodwill. For one reason, because I'm cheap, and also, it's more of a challenge to put together a killer outfit from scratch.
I do peruse the costume websites, and was delighted to see something interesting at Annie's Costumes this year. Some attire that has normally been viewed as men's costumes now comes in women's styles. We can be a knight, a pirate, and even the big, bad wolf, not just a damsel in distress, or a little girl with a red cape. Now that's progress in the right direction!
I also found this site with adorable children in costumes. Almost makes me want to have a baby. Almost.
Tune back in for costume pictures, or send me yours, I'd love to see them! naomibellina AT live DOT com.
