I thought I’d share my Halloween costume for 2013 with everyone. I have decided that from now on I will be using an apron every year as part of my costume. Not only does it give me a chance to have a unique costume, but I also get a new apron out of it for my growing collection. Y’all know how I feel about aprons by now! I’ve also included some pics of B.O.B. Bob as B.O.B. Bob the Builder, and my brother, Matt, as the Bearded Lady. Matt took the first place prize this year for his one-of-a-kind costume, winning a bottle of Trick Red Wine and a bottle of Treat White Wine. He definitely deserved the reward after the amount of effort he put into his costume. He purchased several wigs, bras, and stockings in order to assure he got a comfortable fit. So if anyone out there needs a gigantic bra with padding in it, Matt’s the man to see. I never thought I’d see the day that my brother would be complaining about his bra straps constantly falling down, nor would I have expected that I would be the one helping him pin them to his dress.

Check Out My Little Elf Ears
The inspiration for this costume came from two purchases I made earlier this year, after last Christmas. First, I found the amazing Elf Ears Headband pictured above on clearance at Hallmark, while stocking up on holiday gift wrap. By the way, the ears light up and constantly change color, how awesome is that?
Large Poseable Christmas Elf
A few days later, I came upon my little buddy, a Poseable Christmas Elf, at Zazu, a small gift boutique in Ashburn, VA. He needed a little bit of cleaning, because he had been hanging out as a decoration in a flocked Christmas tree, but he was just too whimsical for me to pass up. I can’t wait to pose him in one of my many trees this Christmas.
I fell in love with this Santa’s Helper Apron on Etsy, made by Lover Dovers Clothing, over a year ago. Their shop has some of the cutest costume aprons available on Etsy, and I’m looking forward to buying more of them in the future.
After doing some research on Amazon for elf shoes, I simply fell in love with these Green Rubber Elf Shoes. They came in red also, but B.O.B. Bob and I both decided it was better to purchase them in green, so that we can eventually use them for St. Patrick’s Day. I think the green color also looks great paired with the Red and White Striped Tights. I also chose to wear Anklet Socks, because I almost always have an allergic reaction to latex, rubber, and plastic products; one more layer between my skin and the rubber shoes couldn’t hurt. Plus, the bows looked really cute.
