how did we make them? (for under $20)
2XL orange t shirts (from Gen X)
orange shoelaces (to be made into headbands)
ping pong balls (for eyes)
orange spray paint
the final product was awesome. lookee here:
we won "funniest" costume at my ward party. everyone loved it, even if they were confused about what exactly we were supposed to be (angry birds? traffic cones? nemo?). i also participated in the pie eating contest, which i almost one- i was two bites away from victory. next time, i will be the supreme winning pie eater. i even had pie in my hair. why yes, i do take my food seriously.
after three halloween parties, kendra, kevin, erin, cameron and i headed to the dollar theater to see Cowbows and Aliens. not exactly the best movie title ever. i was skeptical but since it has Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig in it, i was easily persuaded into seeing it.
real Halloween was equally awesome. Kendra and i traveled up to PG to celebrate with my family. my family looooved our costumes! we had delicious soup for dinner. then we ate doughnuts off a string. kendra and i were the best.
we went trick or treating to all the rooms in the house next. i love me some halloween candy :) kendra and i gave out 'Ghost Poop' (mini white marshmallows). ha ha i am so creative- thank you pinterest.
|mine weren't this cute but you get the idea|
finally, we watched Miracle. made me want to watch lots and lots of hockey. all in all, Halloween was awesome. i loved every party and i loved my costume! next year, be ready for an even more epic and creative costume.
ps. did you know that the average person spends $45 on halloween candy every year?! what is the world coming to?
