The whole issue of Halloween costumes is kind of frustrating once you get past age 10. The options for women can really be boiled down to sexy, scary, funny, or some combo of the above.
If I tried to go in the sexy direction, I’m pretty sure I would end up hiding in the corner all night. Not a good party plan. Scary isn’t my thing either. Which leaves me with funny. With that in mind and some quick help from Real Simple and Martha Stewart respectively, I present to you the leading contenders:
Am I slightly embarrassed that both of my potential costumes are modeled by toddlers? Yes. That probably won’t stop me from following through with my plan, however. It’s either that or be June Cleaver (again) or wear a tight leotard around for hours and hours. Having a complete ballet outfit in my drawer isn’t a good thing. I should have gotten rid of that stuff the minute I finished my ballet class in college. And now I’ll leave you in suspense until Monday. If my costume turns out well, there might even be a picture. Hope you have a good time encouraging children to rot their teeth out with copious amounts of candy!
