Brian and I aren’t dressing up for Halloween this year. You see, we were out of town for the law school Halloween party last weekend, and we don’t typically do anything on the day of Halloween when it falls on a weekday. So I decided to get nostalgic and look at past Halloween costumes to remind myself that I haven’t always been lame.
2007: 50s Poodle Skirt girl and 80s girl (apparently I was into the decades my freshman year of college?)
2008: Barney (I think that was actually a 90s character party, but it was better than my Halloween costume that year)
2009: pirate and Peter Pan and Tinker Bell
2010: Fleur (again, Harry Potter party costume beat Halloween that year)
2011: Ron Swanson and Leslie Knope
Tell me, friends: what has been your favorite Halloween costume ever? And are you/have you dressed up this year! My favorite costumes are always the ones that came together at the last minute or were all scavenged from Goodwill, like my Fleur Delacour and Pirate costumes.
After I wrote this whole thing, I found this post in my archives that reminded me of some of the costumes that I’d forgotten about. Heads up- that Tinkerbell skirt was not good planning on my part. Let’s just say that I cropped the above picture strategically.
I love the Parks and Rec costumes! I took one look at that mustache and instantly knew Brian was Ron Swanson. it’s entirely possible that I love Parks and Rec too much…if that’s even possible. :)
Nope, I don’t think it’s possible! :)

I love your Fleur costume! :) Also, I thought your 2007 costume was a Pink Lady from Grease. But hey. I was close enough! Enjoy your low-key night at home. I’ll be doing the same!
haha I mean, they’re pretty much the same thing :) All I’d need is the jacket! You guys have fun tonight!
You’ve had some great costumes over the years! I think my favorite is Fleur, but I may be slightly biased by my love for HP! ;)

I’m lovin the 80’s workout getup. My 14 year old wanted to dress up like the 80’s era and we found her a great outfit at the thrift store. She did tell me today that the blue eyeshadow she is going to wear is just too much, ha!
Aww, that’s so fun! I love dressing up 80s :) Thrift store costumes are the best!

Thanks Kristin, that made my day! :)
