Countdown to Halloween: Costume Inspiration

With just 4 more days to Halloween, it's time to talk costumes! Here we are last year. (We were dead Victorians)

This years costume isn't turning out quite so well. I had an Etsy seller make up my concept and got burned - its so not what i ordered! I'm not happy at all. (I ordered last years costume from etsy as well and it worked out great.) I'm trying to salvage it but its a bit frustrating. Oh well, they can't all be winners.

Speaking of winners, I've found the following amazing costumes on Flickr and just had to share. I'm always impressed by creative costumes. Aren't these fabulous?

I know some of you are Halloween nuts just like me. I'd love to see some of your costumes from years past right here. Come on, don't be shy - add a link to your photo or blog post about it below!


  1. I love the Bob Ross idea... Too funny!

    I linked up pics of my Coraline Halloween costume and also the creative costumes of my friend's this year!

  2. I wish we followed this tradition in the same spirit as you....such fun...xv

  3. Your dead victorians were awesome!!... curious to see what you're putting together this year.

  4. oooo! The shining twins are totally creepster!

  5. I had no idea you could buy costumes on Etsy! What a great thing!

  6. I somehow missed the dead victorians. How???
    The photo shoot makes them impossibly awesome. Sorry this year is sucky.

    Shining twins rock!! And Bob Ross!! Happy little pumpkins!

  7. I linked up my family costumes. They are mostly much more benign than the ones you've featured, but we still get into it and have fun!

  8. Great Costumes! I'm sure you will find a way to make this year's costume(s)just as fabulous. I look forward to seeing the pics. :)


  9. O wow! You two look like you could be in a movie with the makeup and everything!

  10. wow, small world. the guy in the son of man costume is someone i went to high school with...

  11. Loved your costumes last year, hoping you can make this years work for you! We never dress up, boohoo. The only dressing up I do is of my mantel and it's not really scary. I live my Halloweens vicariously through you my blogging friend ;) hugs from Conroe, TX!
    p.s. I did create a Halloween Theme necklace last night if you feel like taking a peek it's on my blog ;)

  12. You and the Mr. looked crazy fabulous last year and how perfect for your home! Hope you get this year's costume fixed in time and have some more great photos to post! Janell

  13. That's too bad about your costume. Etsy is always a hit and miss... That peacock costume is gorgeous!

  14. How cool is that peacock? So bummed about your costume, hopefully you have time to fix the situation.
