Halloween this year was lots of fun. And though it was on a Monday (boo!!), there was still parties and trick-or-treating a plenty. And if you’re one of those people who hates showing up to the party in the same outfit as someone else…well let’s just hope you went a little out of the box for your Halloween costume.
Baby Z was really upset last week when she came home from school. There was another student dressed in the same Halloween costume she had. Problem is, Baby Z chose to be Harley Quinn this year. So it’s kind of a given that she would run into others like her. Movies and social media are huge influencers in what we wear for costumes. And we’re all pretty much watching the same thing.
Unless you’re like me and piece together your Halloween costume from random thrift store items. I do it partially to feel creative and partially to save money. I don’t think I’ve ever donned a costume that was completely store-made. I always have to throw some element on that’s DIY.
In my defense, I have a Bachelor’s in Costume and Set Design. So I have high standards for costuming. And these store-bought ones always have some detail missing or wrong that nobody else would ever notice. But I do. And it ruins the whole thing for me. I know what you’re thinking: “Wendy, why do you spend so much time and energy on something you’ll only wear once?”
Well, friend. That’s an excellent question. And I have an excellent answer…I don’t know. I AM one of six girls in my family. And I always grew up in matching outfits. So maybe it’s just taking back my uniqueness. Whoa…I think I just had an epiphany. Hang on, I have to call my therapist.
Here’s the Top 10 list of the most-popular costumes this year, according to USA Today. How many of them did you see last night?
