So here is how October used to run for me. For the first 25 days, I “forget” I need to figure out a costume and at the last minute I put together whatever is in my closet paired with some sort of furry eared headband claiming I’m a slutty hipster Minnie Mouse. And then I would go to parties, get sloshed, and wake up looking like I was in a LMFAO music video.
But that was then. And now its a totally different ball park, all thanks to my daughter.
I know, super sappy right? Well before you get out your tissues, I need to clarify. Halloween as a child was the highlight of my year. Lets be honest, valentines day and thanksgiving suck as a kid. You never get the valentine from the boy you like and you always fuck up that hand turkey. But Halloween, Halloween meant you were not only allowed to look like you played in mommies’ makeup, you got rewarded with it with a butt load of candy corn and chocolate medallion eyeballs. And I missed that.
As we got older obviously, trick or treating subsided and going all out on a costume seemed kind of “lame” or “super saiyan slutty” (unless you were a cosplay nerd, then OMG I ENVY YOU GUYS). But that’s all changing for me now! Now that I have my own child, not only do I get to dress her up, I can go all out too! We can be a team because right now shes not embarrassed of me yet. I can go as legitimate Minnie Mouse this time instead of the LA Skid Row former version. The possibilities are as endless as my tumblr searches for “duo costume ideas”. So Halloween is 16 days away and I’m already set. No more last minute Desboobs, more like first minute on top of things in a Halloween sort of way Momboobs. Check out some of the awesome ideas I’ve found along the way.
