belated: halloween pics!

In the rush and excitement before homecoming, I didn't get a chance to post pictures from Halloween. For this, I apologize. I really appriciated all your votes and advices about what costume I should don, but in the end, the recessionista in me won out, and I didn't spend a dime on my costume.

A frenzied late-night raid of one of our basement closets revealed a witch hat, some devil horns, a unicorn hat of sorts, and some cat ears. I figured that between my mom and I, there must be an entire costume that could be pulled together from our closets and topped off with one of those accessories.

Turns out I was right! I found a black lace leotard among my mom's racks of 90s left-overs and some black fabric with gold stars on it, and I knew I was onto something. I combed my closest for my favorite saucy black items (knee-highs, Urban Outfitters skirt, Urban Outfitters lace bra, Steve Madden heels) as well as some cool accessories (big gold hoops, a gold chain, a gold moon necklace and two large crosses (for protection on All Hallows Eve, says my mom)) and voila!

Now all I needed was my costumed-up friends and some great parties to attend...

 

Karina the zebra & Pippi the flamingo; Jason as the Mad Hatter

I found Natalie, a fellow witchy woman!

Blake as Harry Potter...Christian the cell phone (he won an award for 'Best of the Worst'!), Heather as Where's Waldo, and Ali as Troop Beverly Hills

I don't know these people, but that guy's costume was one of the best all night!
