Topless or Not Topless? That Was The Question....

Halloween didn't quite turn out as planned for me.  Or for TEN. 

Remember that I said I was going to be be the Chiquita Banana girl? 



And TEN was going to be this Mexican of sorts?


Well, my costume arrived Friday.  I found it on my neighbor's porch for some reason, but was pleased it had arrived in time.  I ripped open the box, and pulled out the skirt.  It was fabulous!  The basket for my head...awesome.  The maracas...100% authentic.  The shirt....

ABSENT!

Seriously.  No shirt.  Great.  I almost cried, but I didn't.  I told myself I really didn't care about Halloween anyway.  I'm too old to care.  I would just go to the party as T.  So there!

Saturday morning TEN and I went to a few places to find some extra accessories for his Mexican costume.  Along the way we found a witch's hat.  And a plastic cauldron.  I've never been a witch before.  And so....

(me & Marilyn Monroe...witchy women)


The funniest part is that I had everything in my closet that I needed for my costume.  Even these:


And this wig:


Along the way, TEN found another costume.  He's saving the Mexican until I can get my Chiquita Banana gig together.

Even Louis' Halloween costume had a bit of an issue.  This year TEN insisted that Louis be something "manly".  You may remember that last year Louis was this girl bumble bee:


Personally, I liked the girl costume better than the boy costume. 

This year TEN picked Louis' costume.  We ordered a Small, but apparently Louis is an extra small.  I had to break out the needle & thread.  It was the best I could do, and he wouldn't let me snap a photo with his ears on, but....

(Yoda I am)

I giggled the whole way to day care today.  I hope he wins :)

Happy Halloween friends!  I hope your Halloween has more treats than tricks.

I'm always the witch. I have my hat that I wear every year to trick or treat with the niece and nephew. Hate that your costume arrived topless. WOW! Your witch turned out fabulous. May the force be with Louis!

I was a witch in college once, not very creative, but easy and everyone looks good in a LBD!

Your witch turned out great! I can't believe they left out your top!

Ann said...

well that stinks that the top for your costume was missing but your witch's costume is great.
Louis of course is adorable.
