Halloweekend 2014

Well, halloweekend is {almost} over, and what an interesting one it was. I told y'all I'd post my costume(s) afterwards so here we go. Drum roll pleaseeeeee....

I was a banana!

Just kidding. I wasn't a banana, but I kind of wish I was... How good does that banana costume look paired with my J.Crew vest?! Soooo cute.


I was actually a Royals player! Of course, I knew I'd be getting "what  are you, 2nd place?" and "oh sorry about your loss" and maybe a few "go giants!" so I was prepared with my sign that very boldly stated "1st is the worst, 2nd is the best." In case you're wondering, yes, I am 12 because I still use that saying.


Don't worry, the banana costume didn't go to waste. This is Mr. Friendly Banana aka Mark.





For night two I took my roomie/bff/Mare to my Theta mixer (who needs boys anyways?!) and we went as CatDog (throwwwwback). If you don't know what CatDog is you were either deprived as a child or you're under the age of 15 currently.


It was such a fun night, and we got tons of compliments on our costumes! Want to make your own CatDog costume? Follow the directions below!

Supplies

  • 2 Large yellow tee shirts
  • Brown felt
  • 2 Headbands that match hair color
  • White foamboard
  • Red & Purple paint
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Exacto knife
  • Eyeliner
  • Converse
  1. Cut out "spots" from the brown felt. I did all the same size, but Mary did various sizes. Either way works
  2. Hot glue the spots onto the yellow tee shirts
  3. Cut out either pointy cat ears or floppy dog ears from the brown felt and glue them onto the headbands
  4. Cut out the foamboard into the arrows, leaving one side jagged. Paint the cat sign in red, and the dog sign in blue
  5. Once dried, poke holes in the foarmboard and string the ribbon through so it hangs around your neck. Make sure to use a soft ribbon, Mary and I used cheap ribbon and it was itching our necks all night!
  6. Use eyeliner to paint whiskers/spots and noses on your face!
  7. Slip on some shorts, tie up your Converse and you're all ready to go!

  2. How creative! I've seen a lot of people dress up as old Nickelodeon characters from back in our day for Halloween this year. And don't worry, you're not the only one who says that phrase. So I'm probably still 12 too then, ha!

    1. Nickelodeon characters from the 90s are seriously the best. When will they realize that this modern crap needs to go?!
