It is October.
Boy Oh Boy how time flies! People are always saying it. And they sure are right!
In honor of my Fall-decorating, count-down-the-holidays-for-months-in-advance friend, Mary, I am going to kick off the Fall season with a little Halloween costume inspiration post.
Seriously, in August Mary starts talking about how Christmas is only about a month away.
I am not a fall-decorating-fool like Mary. I can see myself headed in that direction but I am not there yet. I think the reason for my hesitation is the 4,000 boxes of holiday decorations that my mom had in our attic.
Mary, the amount of decorations my mom had would send you running to The Holiday Haus! After growing up watching all of the energy my mom put into covering the house with Kwanza teddy bears, ceramic pumpkins, and Easter egg pillows I am in no rush to do it myself.
But what I do like is Halloween costumes! Especially, home-made ones. Here are some of my favorites:
- Pinata! How clever!

- Ipod. Silly group costume.
- ICE CREAM MAN! This little cutie is a boy who is normally in a wheel chair. What an amazing idea to turn his wheel chair into the coolest ice cream truck I have ever seen!

- Baby Carrying Man. Scott stumbled upon this video. The man is dressed up to look like a baby is actually carrying him. The best photos I could get are just a couple of screen shots. It is definitely the funniest baby costume I have ever seen!
- Shower Costume! Back in about 1989, my sister's best friend, Tiffany, made a Halloween costume just like the one below. I have a feeling that this guy copied her. I wish I had a photo of her costume. It was spectacular! What a clever 10 year old!

Within the next few weeks leading up to Halloween I hope to inspire you with some old costumes from yours truly.
