My Halloween party last Friday was a blast. I went as a garden gnome, and it was a very easy costume to whip up last minute. I got some thick felt for the hat, cut them into triangles, and sewed them together. I used normal black and yellow felt to make a belt and buckle, which I just safety-pinned closed. And of course a fake beard (I should have done a mustache, too, but that would definitely have been harder to deal with!). I wore one of Tobi’s blue dress shirts with some green pants & brown boots. The last accessory was the flower, which we’d gotten with one of our wedding gifts as a wrapping embellishment. I like to think that the oversized flower helped make me look smaller.
Everyone said my costume was pretty cute.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good pictures of it, but I did snap one from the PhotoBooth on my Mac before I left the house.
For actual Halloween, I had to work but decided to wear my old skeleton t-shirt. (Which I often wear as pajamas!) Here’s a picture of me wearing it at the beach this summer:
All the bones are labeled with their names.
Did you dress up for Halloween?
