Our First Halloween

So I married a man who doesn't dislike Halloween as much as I do... in fact, he really likes it. Therefore, I had to put on my "good sport" pants and go all out for a costume this year... thankfully he let me choose our costumes!

We went as Russel Brand and Katy Perry!!
(Please soak in the irony as we are newlyweds. Ok.)

We're on a budget so we didn't have a lot of money to spend, but we did a great job:
My wig (I had to trim it) - $8
His wig - $8
My false eyelashes - $4
My dress (Goodwill) - $8
Candy - $5
Total: $33 for both of us!

We had a big party at my boss' house on Sunday night and we won a gift card for "Best Costume."
Maybe this dressing up stuff isn't so bad afterall?

What are you doing for this Halloween?

That's a great costume! Very creative and thrifty! Last year, my boyfriend and I made our halloween costumes (we were "us in 50 years") but unfortunately didn't get to use them because we got a crazy snow storm that canceled our party. Good thing is - we still have them for this year! Happy Halloween!
