Anyone dressing up for Halloween? - added picture
Our friends still have costume parties so I am hurrying to get costumes done for the hubby and myself. Had to put it off til the last minute pending the moonlight madness sale at Joanne's..This year we are bacon and eggs. The hubby is a good sport, the first year we went he was a potted flower and I a bee, last year he was cookie monster and I was his cookie.

I'll have to see if I can find some pictures.

My husband is not so into the whole dressing up part... well.. that's not true. He'll dress up so long as it doesn't cost him a whole lot.

But, we get invited to Halloween parties every year. We're going as bikers. *yawn* We ARE bikers so we have all the leathers and helmets and all... even leather chaps. I know it's kinda a lame costume idea, but I'm beefing up the costume factor by going nuts with temporary tattoos and cheesy biker garb. Biker bar tee shirts, chains, skulls, etc. Hee!

Bacon and eggs? That's awesome. I dress up because my son likes for me to. This year he wants to go as Captain Jack Sparrow. I still haven't decided what I want to dress up as yet. Last year my mom and dad dressed up and it was hilarious. My dad had this disco outfit and wig and told everyone he was Dr. Funkenstein. My mom dresses up as a witch every year.

DH doesn't care to go out ever, but I will get him when we have kids . Halloween is still new to him since he grew up Jehova. Carved his first pumpkin last year and LOOOVED it.

But I go out to the bar every year with my friends. Some years we do giant group things. Like a couple years ago we went as Batman enemies. My friend Brian was an AMAZING TwoFace, I was his girl Spice, my friend Katie was Poison Ivy, and our friend Manda was the Penguin. It was awesome.

Last Year I was Jem, from Jem and the Holograms. It was too cool. Katie, on my left was a Vampire, and Brian was the captain from the Titanic, AFTER it sank. My mic was hot pink with stars on it AND, it lit up with flashing rainbow colours.

This year I am a bit broke from the wedding stuff, so I am keeping it simple. I am going as a "suicidal" emo kid. I have the long dark hair for it, so it won't be too hard. And I have the perfect shirt, Just need to pick up a couple tiny things and I am set. DH HAAATES the idea. I practiced my emo make up the other day and it just made him sick. He wouldn't even kiss me. But he cheered when I came out with it off. lol.

I'm gonna dress up as a trucker.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

I'm going to a Halloween party this year. Don't know if I'll dress up or not.

But, when I don't dress up, I sit on the couch and watch horror movies all night.
One of many knitting guys.
