Friday Favorites: My Best Halloween Costume Ever

Since it was Halloween, I thought I would look back to my first Halloween post from back in 2006.

I wore this doozy about 3 years ago for an office party.

When I was a kid, I usually dressed up as the undead... vampires, zombies and the like because generally it was easy and it required little effort to pull that off, so when their was going to be an office party where I worked in 2003, well, I thought I would do something a little different. I strolled on over to a shop downtown and put together a costume.

radiation suit costume that was not designed for someone of my *ahem* frame: 10 dollars
Winter coat: It was my old Winter Coat
heavy winter boots: mine
Rubber gloves: 2 dollars
Having your boss swear and drop the phone in shock when you walk into the room: Priceless

Now, I sort of suffered for that shock too, because it was a day in the high 70's-low 80's, and wearing a winter coat, rubber gloves and boots and a polyester head covering and pants is not the most comfortable of situations. To put it mildly, I was dying in it.

But I did win best costume, so I guess that makes up for it. I just wish I would have had the foresight to dress up like this.

You know, even now, I am thinking about putting it on again, just to scare the children in the neighborhood.

Becca: Well, you know I love seeing those suits in movies... one of my favorite cinematic choices as well.

Megan: I think it would scare a lot of kids actually.
