Freak Friday: Halloween Costumes!

Halloween is my number one, absolute favorite holiday. Every year, I spend months figuring out the perfect costume and often spend my time making the costume. But, over the past three years, it seems I've hit the wall. I've let the costumes slide and become more and more a dime store dozen. And worse, this year, I can't even decide on a costume. It's the end of September!!! This is way late. With time ticking away, I NEED to figure out a costume!
My last - and arguably most - brilliant costume was done a few years ago with my husband. We were the original Batman and Robin. I was Batman (or Batwoman as it were).
Last year, I let my pup, Chuck the corgi, play the part of Bat Dog. But, I think we are all batted out.
So with little time and even fewer ideas...What the heck am I going to wear for Halloween? I was thinking a pixie, since corgis are known as the Pixie's Steed. I could put a saddle on Chuck, though I'm sure he wouldn't appreciate my need for authenticity. But, every costume looks like a Playboy bunny should be wearing it, and the end of October in NYC is COLD! *sigh*

(For pics of fairy costumes, google it and you'll see what I mean!)

So, please readers, help me! Inspire me! What are you all going to be for Halloween?


  1. Halloween is my all-time favorite holiday too! I love that you dress up every year, that's AWESOME. You should totally be a pixie, you'd make a great one! Just be a winter pixie, with a fur-lined outfit!

  2. A winter pixie!!! Heather, that's brilliant!!!

  3. I'm with Heather - winter pixie is perfect! Can't wait to see it! LOL
