I LOVE family costume themes. Love 'em.
More than that, I just freakin' love costumes.
Tonight, we're a themed family. Last year, not so much.
Last year, I didn't even HAVE a costume. That's probably the first (and hopefully ONLY) time in my life that it's the case.
Anyway, I'll wait until I have pictures for the big reveal, but here is a picture of the last time we did a family themed costume:
Get it? We're all Adam West Batman villains!!!!!
...shut up, it's cute.
This year is cuter.
I love to make costumes. I used to do it for a living. If you don't mind, I'm just going to spam you with a few of my favorite costumes I've made.
|A dancing pack of "Suicide Brand" cigarettes|
|Thor. I didn't make the hammer or helm, but you get the idea.|
|Cat woman. That's right- I made myself a full body vinyl cat suit. And yes, this is on a rooftop.|
|This is a bear suit I made for an independent film|
|And this is the costume for a witch in a post-apocalyptic werewolf-and-vampires type film|
Back before I was a wife and mother (which is to say, back when I had time and energy for that sort of thing) I was in the Rocky Horror Picture Show cast- Dynamic Tension- back in Michigan. I played Magenta (and occasionally Dr. Scott, Janet, and Frankenfurter) for NINE YEARS.
