Happy (almost) Halloween!
I was so excited to go out tonight â€“ we thought we were going to have to miss the parties. It wouldâ€™ve been a shame to waste these epic costumes!
German Bavarian. Never thought Iâ€™d see the Husband in lederhosen. Maggie was my wienerschnitzel.
We rented our costumes from a local costume shop called Morris Costumes â€“ and they were ONLY $25 apiece. I didnâ€™t think weâ€™d be able to find a fun costume set at the last moment (the Husband is big into going as a pair) but Morris came through, Although, admittingly, the traditional German thing is a pretty random Halloween costume! They were clearly costumes from a play or choir (names were sewn into the collars) and were a big hit at the parties. Especially when we filled up our giant beer steins.
Other stand-outs included: Thor and a Dark Fairy (Isaac and Nicole). Nicole had a â€œMagic Wandâ€ app of her iPhone that she waved to make wooshing wand noises. So 2011 Fairy.
Undecided and a Bunny:
Mario and Olive Oil + a Vampire and Thor (again):
But my FAVORITE costume of the night goes to Michelle, who was the Black Swan! Wish I had gotten a better pic of her outfit (sheâ€™s in the back left). So demonic.
Michelle threw one of two parties that we attended. She had an amazing chili bar with meat-based and vegetarian chili, as well as cheese, sour cream, onion, and other toppings. At the second party, I filled up on chips and dip.
Some dessert, too!
Mmmm. Apple crisp.
I made my sister-in-law try candy corn (sheâ€™s from England and has never even HEARD of candy corn â€“ for shame). She remarked, â€œThis kind of tastes like ear plugs coated in sugar.â€ Ha!
All in all â€“ a very silly Halloween indeed.
Gute Nacht! GlÃ¼cklichen Halloween!
