Neil and I went to our friends' Todd and Karla's "Haunted House Warming" party last night. (The girls went to the farm and stayed overnight.) For costumes, we just rummaged through our house and came up with these. Luckily, Darren had left his army helmet in our van last weekend when the guys went to play paintball for Darren's stag. My hat, gloves, and shoes were my Grandma Mantay's; I've had them stashed away for many many years. Everyone at the party loved the hat especially. I bought the dress (with a matching jacket) at Value Village a number of years ago, but hadn't used it yet. It was one of the few costume items I own that fit over my belly right now!
Unfortunately, you can't see my shoes in this picture. They're white with really pointy toes and narrow heels. Also, I'm not that much shorter than Neil, but he was standing on the hot tub cover and I wasn't because didn't want to risk making a hole in it with my heels. Nice background setting too, heh?!
