Halloween Costume Ideas!

It's my favorite time of year...October! The weather's getting crisper and the leaves have just started to drift along on smoke-scented breezes. We're gearing up for the most glorious holiday ever, Halloween! I’m all about playing dress-up. I love wigs and crazy shoes, feather boas, anything with sequins. Every single time I go to a costume party I ask myself why all parties can’t involve false eyelashes and boys in drag and the undead getting down with rivulets of blood dripping from their fangs.

This year, in honor of the best holiday EVER, I've decided to gather some great ideas for costumes. Check out these images, and let your creative juices flow. Some are spooky, some cute, some sexy, but they're all creative and fully into the spirit of things!






















 Lastly, I couldn't resist adding a couple of my husband and I in my favorite costumes from Halloweens past:

Okay, I have to say, the costume with the headless girl in the dress is pretty darn awesome...love it!

I like the costumes that inspire all kinds of fresh ideas. I still haven't decided what I'll be this year, so I figured blogging about it might get me motivated.

This is what I needed! Some inspiration and excitement around Halloween. I'm far from my tribe and missing all that is Halloween. I'm considering attending a costume party though, so I must get to brainstorming! You seem to have a few themes going here, particularly steampunk (not surprising!) and the arabian nights gals...which is new and intriguing for you! :)

Rose! Halloween just WILL NOT be the same here without you. We're all going to wilt without Super Diva here to guide us. Lucky England! Our loss is their gain (sigh!)
