Finally got Andrew to agree on our Halloween costumes for this year. I'm pretty excited about mine, as it involves blood, scabs, bruises and Campbell's soup.
Here's some hints:
I will not be going as "Paris The Heiress" (which, incidentally, is completely sold out in size Small, which I find pretty hilarious because who is going to effectively pull off a Medium Paris or a Large Paris? Or, even a Small, really. There seems to be no Extra Extra Small.)
I will not be going as a Garden Gnome, although if I were inclined to wear face masks this would be a pretty good costume.
I will not be going as Strawberry Shortcake, who apparently had some issues, left the Strawberry Patch and became a pole dancer.
I will not be going as a Vaguely Disappointing Low Rent Pimp. (though it is in the clearance Sale section)
I will not be going as a Doggie Dressed as a Rag Doll. No matter how cute it is. Sorry.
Andrew and I have said for the past three years that we wanted to go as a Flipper and a Flapper but we had no idea how to make a dolphin costume. But, as the dolphin costume is a cool $695 we will not being going as this either.
I will not be going as a Patriotic Woman With Huge Boobs. (Do you think she's for Bush or Kerry?)
I will not be going as a Woodland Fairy...even though I loved the idea when I read about it in Budget Living magazine two years ago. For some reason Andrew thinks dressing as a Woodland Fairy would make him appear less than manly. I disagree. Everyone knows Fairies are hot.
I will not be going as a Country Girl because come on, I live in Georgia and already dress like this everyday. Where would the fun in that be?
And lastly, Andrew and I will definitely not be going as a "Nuts and Bolts" couple because really, what could be filthier and more obscene?
