    I got all the ingredients for mine yesterday - Yogi bear. Total cost of costume: $19. I bought a brown shirt, brown pants, brown mittens, green tie, and a plush Boo Boo side-kick for $8 at the Thrift store. Bought face paint, felt for ears and tail, and a picnic basket at the dollar store (I have a gingham tea towel to cover it at home). Got the Yogi-style hat for $8.

    I guess $20 is a splurge but I needed something to cheer me up and I think this will do the trick!

    We had our big Halloween party last night and my husband and I went as Amish people. I had found an Amish dress at a thrift store a couple years ago and my mom made me a prayer cap. Put my husband in a blue button down, black pants and bought him suspenders, a large straw hat and fake beard. It is really funny, since we dairy and that is kind of what runs through people's minds when we tell them what we do

    I saw a flirty referee costume at Walmart a month or so ago and decided to make it. Black & white baseball shirt w/black duct tape stripes, short black skirt, high heel knee boots and a whistle.

    It was a good bit funnier when I originally came up with it b/c the NFL was still on replacement refs and I never came up with a penalty flag

    I made a costume for my six month old, I really wanted him to be a dragon (since he was born in the year of the dragon) didn't have time to make something new for me so I am going as a princess.

    All we needed was a purple moor, a ghostly galleon of a moon and we would have made Sir Alfred Noyes proud indeed.

    This is awesome.
    It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

    DD is going to be a cupcake, we have no pictures in her costume yet though. We were never allowed to wear our costumes until it was actually Holloween!

    Dixie was supposed to be a frog, but ate her costume.

    I was Wonder Woman, DH was Phil from Duck Dynasty (a bunch of his friends made up the rest of that clan). So proud

    Jockey and Racehorse

    We have not yet taken pics of our dogs in their costumes courtesy of the "grandparents".

    Elliot will be a racehorse (they had no idea what I was dressing up at this year... totally coincidental) and Ezra will be a bucking Bronco.

    I think we'll probably walk them around the neighborhood while everyone is out trick or treating (hey why should the human childless couples miss out on all the fun) and then take them up to the local dog friendly pub for a Halloween beer.

    And still of a winter's night, they say, when the wind is in the trees... love that poem!

    Talkofthetown, your DH's costume made me laugh out loud!

    I was an owl last year, and probably will be again this year. It was a good counterpoint to our super scary yard decorations -

    DS is 3 weeks old. I desperately want to figure out a way to create a Dread Pirate Roberts costume for his tiny self. Hopefully the snow that's currently falling won't be too bad and Walmart will have the supplies I need and I can whip something up tomorrow. If I can pull it off (which is still a big IF) I'll be sure to post pics!

    Default Midget Clown Shark

    http://theclaytorfamily.blogspot.com...-and-most.html

    I made a 6 foot long shark costume and had my step-son dress up as a midget clown riding the shark. (my husbands 3 biggest fears in life - sharks, clowns, and midgets - he didn't know I was making the costume).

    The costume was so damn big, the poor kid only made it 5 blocks trick or treating. But it was fantastic - he'd go to the door (I had to ring the bell since he couldn't do steps) and people would call the family over to see it, cars were slowing down to stop and look...

    It took 2 months to make it though...and I had no prior sewing skills.
