Show & Tell Tuesday: Halloween Costumes

hi gorgeous people!  

Ahhh I'm slightly later than normal this week on posting and it's driving me nutttts! Anyways ha....so I am bummed that I don't have more actual pictures to share with y'all but I think all those pictures are at my grandmother's house. Growing up, halloween was a huge deal for my family because our neighborhood went ALL out for it. It was so exciting and we always had the best night! In our neighborhood we had a haunted house, a doctor that would dress up like a crazy doctor with candy syringes, people hiding under porches to grab your legs at different houses and if you thought you'd get away with not handing out candy....well you got rolled.

I've been a tiger {I carried around a tiger beanie baby as my cub}, Pocahontas {my least favorite because I was 6 and hated wearing a wig}, Kelly Clarkson {which everyone mistaken for Avril Lavigne} and my favorite, daffy duck {which I won best costume for in 1995 and my mom takes full credit}.

my brother got to be the cool power ranger and the comedian I am is of course, daffy duck. 

I couldn't find a picture of me as Pocahontas but Micah was my indian friend that year {look how presh he was!}

This was 2006, I was 16 and Micah was 19. How legit did he look?! I was the generic angel...#waytobecreativelinds

The only time I've dressed up as an adult! In college we all went as vikings ha. 

Tripp and I are attempting to dress up this year and I'm making this costume this week for our party Friday. We've never dressed up for Halloween since we've been together so I feel pressure y'all. hah - Mucho Prayers Needed! #isuckatdiy

  3. Oh gosh I was so many terrible things in college, one year I went as a tennis player because I played tennis and didn't need to get an outfit LOL!! Can't wait to see what you guys will pick this year! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. LOVED getting to see all your Halloween costumes! Don't worry, I was super generic on many occasions so it wasn't just you! I don't get to dress up this year because I'll be at the Taylor Swift concert BUT we got cute little fox masks to wear! Can't wait to see what you decide to be this year!

  5. So cute!!!! I love the vikings!!! Group costumes are always fun. Can't wait to see what you make for this year!! :)

  6. I have a big race the day after Halloween so I'll be in bed by like 8:30 on the night of haha so no Halloween for me this year! I'm going to miss dressing up but am stalking everyone else's costumes instead :) good luck pulling yours together!

  7. Haha so funny! Yes dressing up just isn't as fun when you're an adult because you're not as excited about it. I love that y'all are doing a couples costume! Can't wait to see this year!

  8. That duck costume is awesome! The homemade ones were always the best!

  9. The pacman costumes are the best ever! That is seriously awesome. I wish I could convince the hubs to coordinate with me. He's always like costumes? Nah.....

  10. So much pressure on couples costumes :)
    I love the Daffy Duck :)

  11. Love all the pics - Daffy Duck is my favorite though! When I was little (probably like 3) I wanted to be Pocahontas so badly, but refused to wear the wig & would tell everyone that when I was old enough I was going to dye my hair black so I could be Pocahontas for Halloween! Thankfully I grew out of that desire haha!

  12. Gotta love all these costumes!!! I can't wait to see how they turn out for this year...good luck!

  13. lol at people mistaking kelly clarkson for avril lavigne. i never dressed up as a kid / teenager, but there was a phase that i dressed like avril lavigne everyday. so glad there aren't a lot of photos of that phase, lol.

  14. I have loved seeing all of these costumes! The tiger one sounds the cutest out of all these! I wish I had dressed up in college but.. I kind of stopped doing the Halloween thing after eighth grade :(. Love the Pac Man costume too!
