Brealynn decided this would be unacceptable this year (which it would have been). She began asking me ... probably around the beginning of July what we were going to be. As usual, I couldn't think of anything that far in advance. Sometime in September we settled on Scooby Doo, Fred and Daphne.
The nice thing was, our total cost to put together that look was something like fifteen dollars. This included a wig and some shoes that Brea decided not to wear. But we looked super awesome, and had a super good time at our friends party (and I made s'mores with Reese's for the first time. Oh my gosh they are delicious).
Saturday I got the great idea that Brea would make a perfect member of the group LMFAO. She took a little while to believe it, but with ten dollars (which helped purchase a $4 pair of red snakeskin skinny jeans), a lot of hairspray, a black shirt that I lettered, and a pair of ridiculous shoes that were actually in her collection already, her look was completed.
With a can of gold spray paint and two light up bracelets taped inside for glowing eyes, I had my costume. And we looked ready to Party Rock. I sure am glad my wife's so fun to dress up as. And only complained a little when I asked her to dress up as a man. Maybe my dad could try this out next year....
