Michelle Willms said...

I liked being a goddess, but the truth is, the best costume I've ever had was a Cowardly Lion costume my mother-in-law made for me. I was the Lion, my sister was Dorothy, her husband was Tinman, and my hubby was Scarecrow. We looked pretty cool. My costume was sexy or anything (it was more like footy pjs - BIG footy pjs, but it was a fun costume. We all looked liked we were supposed to, though. :)

The most awesome Halloween costume I ever had was when I was 11. My neighbor returned home after 2 1/2 years in Korwas. He had a Geisha girl dress that was only slightly too big. His married sister fixed my hair as he showed her in a picture and put on my makeup. He also had the hair ornaments.
I felt Beautiful! I hated for tat night to end.

Honestly, I've never made or worn an awesome costume-- but my husband, baby, and I are probably going to go as the moustache-clad Beastie Boys from the "Sabotage" video for Halloween. It should be funny :)

Katie Watkins said...

I made my husband this really fancy Lord of the Rings type costume. He wore it a couple of times and then sold it. (It was really supposed to be for his sister's Lord of the Rings autumn wedding, but the wedding was called off--at least it was put to good use)

When my son was 5, his dad and I made him an Elvis costume. We used a white shirt and pants and glued sequins and jewels all over them for the outfit.
