Halloween Costumes

Now that it is October I feel comfortable openly discussing Halloween plans. When you have kids you get to dress them up and you get to be lazy about your own costume. But when you are sans children and under the age of 40 it is pretty lame (in my humble opinion) not to dress up. I’ve been doing a little research and the only adult female costumes I can find are: slutty nurse, slutty hooker, or slutty farm girl.

I don’t know of a town that celebrates Halloween more intently than San Francisco {see photo.} This year we got invited to fancy exclusive party through Paul’s work so we’ll go to that before we go to the Castro to brave the masses. We need a really cool costume!

Suggestions please?

    I don’t have any suggestions, sorry, but I do LOVE that chicken costume. It’s so much more lush than the chicken costume i bought at Old Navy. If I realllly wanted to, I guess I could make it, but really, I know won’t. I do like the idea of Ella carrying around a basket of eggs like the pictures shows, though. I can make that happen.

    Maybe you can dress up as a cool movie character, like, enid from ghost world or margot from the royal tennenbaums or some out of a painting like the mona lisa o girl with the pearl earring!

    I was thinking the same thing. Nate and I plan to go as Margot and Richie Tenenbaum. Margot is easy, you just need a long fur coat and some of those plastic barets you had when you were five. Richie just needs a beard, tennis sweat band and a cordoroy blazer.

    Thanks for the ideas guys. Tonia: you guys should be Margot and Richie. Last year we went to a party and some of our friends were the Tenenbaums. It was funny because a lot of the people at the party hadn’t seen it (because of the R rating) so they had no idea who they were.

    I think you and Paul should be Mario and Luigi.

    unless you never played nintendo then it wouldn’t be alright. then it would be like if you wore the smiths shirt before listening to the band.

    If you’re going to go as the tenenbaums, I recommend going as aurie & oozie (sorry I have no idea how to spell their names!) and wear the red adidas tracksuits & black fro wigs. I think it would be adorable. That’s a costume I have been thinking about for 3 years.
