halloween costume(s) '11

This week (and quite possibly all of next) will be devoted to Halloween!!!
(weekend adventures will have to wait).

I thought I would start off by doing a costume announcement now that we have finally decided on our outfits for the festivities this weekend. (Technically there are two this year, because I am doing something with my friends downtown Friday night, and Saturday me and Pat are going to a big house party with his).

SO.
Friday night for dancing with my friends I am going to get my nerd on. I already have some rainbow suspenders and the perfect tshirt, so now it is just a matter of adding on extras. Actually, if you think about it my two costumes sort of go together after all.

Mario Brothers and Princess Peach!
The boys costumes are going to be traditional Mario and Luigi, but I sort of always do things with my own spin on them, so do not expect to see any store bought concoctions from me next week when I post party pictures. I ordered some things online which just came in this morning, so I am really excited to try everything on (fingers crossed). I just need a few more little somethings for my look, including some home made glitter shoes I will be attempting. The boys should be good to go once their costumes arrive. PUMPED! (oh, and no, I am not wearing a blond wig, I like to mix it up).

Here are some of my inspirations. (I first got the idea when Green Wedding Shoes posted a Mario Inspired Wedding back in July).
