The Ghosts of Halloween's Past

Yay! It's everyone's favorite time of year again! Who doesn't love them some Halloween costumes (besides 3 hole punch Jim)? I'm actually not sure what I will be this year yet but to get inspired, I'd figure I'd take a trip down memory lane while I decide... [waving magic wand and screen is wavy-line changing views]
halloween, khaleesi costume, khal drogue costume, game of thrones
Khal Drogo & Khaleesi (+ Drogon!) | Well, really it's KHALEES-O & KHAL-LY DROGO. I knew everyone and their Mom was going to be Khaleesi/a Game of Thrones character last year so I figured I'd change it up and we'd swap roles. And then Chandler, bat-winged out, was a perfect little dragon.
calvin and hobbes costume
Calvin & Hobbes | Thank you Goodwill for having multiple versions of Calvin's full outfit available.

day of the dead makeup, parisian
First night: Dead German Bier Girl (clearly made that up...) & a Parisian | Second night: Day of the Dead

First Night: Jay the hippie (that wig looked good on him!), me the 1940s nurse (hat wise, nothing else wise)| Second night: Whatever that was? Girl in red?

Peacock | Gosh dangit they are pretty

First Night: Hell's Angel | Second Night: Swine Flew (get it?) but everyone thought I was "When Pigs Fly"

Jessica Rabbit | Which is basically the same as being Sofia Vergara with red hair. 

So I figured 2008 is a good place to stop! South of 2007 hits into college years and lawdy-lawd we don't need to promote those costumes online now that I consider myself a respectable human being.

What are you going to be for Halloween 2015!?!

What a fun post. Dont think I would be able to pull all these up! Love your looks.

You guys rock! I love your ideas from years past.

Not dressing up this year due to recent shore house purchase/adulting and day labor required, plus the party we were going to Friday night got cancelled.

We always keep our costumes a secret until debuted so we'll keep that one for next year!

So so fun!! You can rock any costume!!! Love the Jessica Rabbit!! Hot mama!!

Pat Hatt said...

lmao Jay sure has the hippy down. Did you honk like a peacock too? haha Those buggers can be loud.

We just finished season 1 of Game of Thrones (yeah we're super late to the game), so I'm LOVING your swapped costumes. Pure amazingness <3

Brittany said...

These are awesome. I'm absolutely amazed by your Khal Drogo and Khaleesi. PERFECT. Also, Calvin and Hobbes is such a cute idea. Love it. Can't wait to see what you come up with this year!

I LOVE your Game of Thrones costume with the reversed roles! Too funny. You've had some really great costumes over the years!

Ashley Lillis said...

I love the fact that you dressed up like Khal Drogo and Khaleesi, but that you were Kahl! Definitely a fun way to take a spin on a costume that a ton of people were doing! I love the Calvin & Hobbes costume too! So much fun!

So cute! The peacock one is my favorite! My old costumes are too slutty to post, lolololol I haven't really dressed up for Halloween since I stopped fitting into slutty costumes, lol :)

Myra said...

OMG you guys are so freakin' cute! I need to have you come dress me for Halloween, lololol.

Panty Buns said...

Wow, you've styled some fabulous and pretty costumes in past Halloweens! For yet another year I won't have my costume together in time. I really could use a giant potato costume to wear on the couch.
