while i wait it out and get the "OK" to begin sewing again -
i was going through my costumes yesterday (with my left hand!)
and came across so many memories from years ago!
i LoVe making my own costumes.
my mom always made our costumes for halloween when we were growing up and i thought it was great. my costume was always original - not one of those store bought costumes.
and becasue i worked in the nursing home business for so many years,
i not only dressed up for halloween but also
dressed up for special days like "wear your pajamas to work" or "it's fun to be a kid again day".
and for some reason i have kept most of my costumes.
and yesterday i decided i really didn't need to keep them any longer!
(well maybe my wigs, long gloves and tiaras...!)
so i threw out my crunchy Janis Joplin hippie costume, scarecrow, little girl dress with pinafore costume (well, maybe that one will conme in handy - i better keep that one)
a butterfly, 101 dalmations, mushroom inspired by the movie Fantasia...
here are a few of the costumes over the years. we didn't dress up last year and maybe the year before that either? so the first two photos are from a few years ago.
|can you guess who we are?|
|no, those are NOT my boobs! OR my hair! OR my nails!|
and NO that is not my husband's hair either!
(tats not real either!)

from Dog the Bounty Hunter.
|remember these guys? the crash test dummies.|
i made these costumes with painters overalls.
he was the sweetest cocker spaniel.
|this one is ridiculous! what was i thinking? it was inspired by the movie Fantasia.|
this was actually about 25 years ago. i remember it being such a pain to wear that gigantic mushroom head!
|cruella deville ... |
