Halloween Costumes of the Past

I'm not typically a "dress-up-for-Halloween" type of gal, but there are some random years that I've come up with some fun costumes.  I never go for the norm, the sexy or the expected.

In light of Halloween coming up in a couple weeks, I thought I'd share my previous costumes with you.  This year, we will have just gotten back from Mexico so I will probably be in bed early due to exhaustion!  No costumes this year!

I'm the cheerleader with a mullet on the left (1989ish?)

Barney Rubble (2000)

some kind of weird colorful reindeer (2001 - freshman year of college)

Marge Simpson (2004 - senior year of college)

Cloudy with a Chance of Showers (I walked around with a watergun and shot people with water) 2006
Yes, this might look like a scene from a horror film - creepy clown in the background

2008 was fun!  My roommate and I had a Halloween party at our condo.  I was the 27 Dresses girl and my pup was my bride.  Every hour, I went upstairs and changed into a different bridesmaid dress from all my friends' weddings.... 

 Cowgirl (2010)

Smarty Pants (2010 at a different party)

tomato juice and my little skunk :)  get it? (2011)

Carroll's bridesmaid (that's the dress that I wore in my friend on the left's wedding 7 years before - I was swinging a last minute costume) (2014)

What have been some of your favorite costumes from your previous Halloweens?  I'm curious to know you're most creative one!

Linking up with Andrea


  1. This was such a fun stroll down memory lane! I love the 27 Dresses look, and I'm cracking up over the creepy clown in the background, haha!

  2. Haha I love these! You are wayyy more creative than me. I haven't dressed up in so long that I forgot how to even begin thinking about costumes lol!

  3. These are all so clever! I think the cloudy with a chance of showers is my favorite, but the 27 dresses idea is so cute! Your shorter hair is so cute too!

  4. Aw, I love the 27 Dresses one! Such a cute idea!

  5. OMG - you have the best ideas!! I'm not one for dressing up much (or getting into Halloween at all), but these are great!! I love the 27 dresses idea... and it totally makes me laugh because you can see the evolution of bridesmaid fashion FOR SURE. I remember ALLLLLLL of those dress trends.

  6. These are so clever! I love the smartie pants!

  7. Oh my gosh, I LOVE the 27 dresses idea! That is the cutest thing ever! Smarty Pants is a good one, too... I'm the least creative person at coming up with Halloween ideas but yours are the best!

  8. OMG I love the marge simpson one. too cute!
