I know, I know. By the time you are reading this, it’s already November. Better late than never, though, right?! Right. I hope you all had nights full of tricks, but mostly treats. I just wanted to quickly share with you some Ghosts of Halloween’s Past. They are all pretty recent. Unfortunately, I don’t have any adorable pictures of my young self at my disposal so you get old Jess. You can thank me later.
Well, I guess I have one (thanks to The Facebook). One year I dressed up as a basketball player. 26 points if you can figure out which cutie is me…
This one time, I dressed as a biker chick. Tell me I’m not the only one that wears heeled ankle booties on 200+ miles of motorcycle riding… *2010*
One year I got crazy and dressed as a professional boogie boarder. I think I pulled off the look quite well. I also can’t believe I’m posting a photo of myself in a wet suit on the interwebs. *2010*
Okay, so here’s a legit Halloween costume. We went to Boulder to visit my Aunt and I ended up being a Geisha. Ignore me trying to squint my eyes. I’m a horrible person. *2010*
The funniest thing about my costume was that my Aunt had every part of this costume. And Travis’. If anyone ever wants to dress up as a RockStar or a Geisha, my Aunt can hook you up. *2010*
Ahhh, this is one of my favorite costumes. Before Travis whisked me away on his white horse, I lived with Sara, my BFF. We were obsessed with the short-lived show ‘Kath and Kim’. So, here we are as them. Seriously, one of the funniest shows. Ever. *2009* Oh, and this was the night Travis asked me for my number. He was part of the band we went to watch…if you’re wondering what to wear to impress a cute guy, zebra leggings, pointy gold shoes and a wig will do it. Just sayin’.
The same year as Kath and Kim, I dressed up as a ‘Demon Red-Riding Hood’. I needed a costume to wear to work and Hip-Hop. Guess what? First place in hip-hop, baby. You bet your sweet bottom I grooved to Thriller in this get-up. *2009*This one time, we found ourselves looking like John Smith and Sacajawea. *2010*
Ooo, one of my favorites. A skydiver! And I really jumped out of a plane! I had to make it extra convincing… *2010*
Oh, and this one time I dressed as a Bride. I’m not sure how I got that handsome guy to dress up as my groom, though. I think we were pretty convincing… *2011*
I also let that same guy decide our next costume. Raggedy Ann and Andy. Let’s just say I won’t be letting him make such big decisions ever again. *2011* Although, old drunk ladies liked us. Obviously.
So there you have it! A silly little recap of some past costumes, some of which may or may not have been for the actual holiday of Halloween. I guess I just like to dress up!
