This week's question:
"What is your favorite Halloween costume?
Even if you don’t celebrate, what kinds of costumes do you like?"

Jamie @

sure knows how to
pick 'em! Great minds
think alike & all that!
Well, my costume from last year I liked a lot. I go for costumes that you can piece together on your own. I'm not talking about testing your sewing skills or anything nearly as drastic (or in my case, dangerous). More like having an idea of what you want to be, then following through, hopping through bunches of stores looking for the elements of your costume. Last year, for example, I was a pirate. I'd found this cute overcoat with skulls and medallion-shaped buttons, tore up a red t-shirt to make a bandana, and wore all black underneath, ending in my favorite pair of boots. I have to say, I think it was a success.

But, my ultimate Halloween fantasy is having a specially designed costume just for me à la Lola Nolan (from Lola and the Boy Next Door). How freaking awesome would that be?

Even if you're not participating in the hop, my question to all of you bystanders is what was your most memorable Halloween? And what costume were you wearing?

That would be pretty awesome for a pirate! There are so many awesome ideas out there for costumes! It's so fun to see what people come up with.

Love your new layout. Sorry I haven't been by in a long time!

Lah- Yeah, but you want to be Dorthy. That's one of my favorite fictional characters!

And thank you!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!! I also love that dress. It reminds me of something katniss would have worn that cinna made look like it was on fire in the hunger games

I agree - I love the "make-it/find-it/put-it together yourself" numbers versus the prepackaged varieties found at those Halloween costume stores. I bet your pirate costume really stood out from the pack.

A costume designed by Lola - what a fabulous book-inspired idea!

City Girl Who Loves to Read said...

I wish characters from books made for a more recognizable costume, don't you? I bet Cinna from the "Hunger Games" would make a mean Halloween costume too.

A. Knight said...

For those of you who made a mention of Cinna, I haven't read the books, but it's funny because that dress is supposed to have been made by the character according to Jamie @ Perpetual Page Turner's source :)

Thanks all for stopping by, and I was more than happy to pay a visit to all of yours!
