Playing dress up

Halloween is here. That was made official Saturday night.

The party itself was okay, minus the fact that I didn't know most of the people there and all there was to drink was beer. (I'm not a big beer fan. I nursed two Coronas all night.)

Oh, and I can't forget to mention, my ex and his girlfriend were there. Not that big of a deal, really, but a little awkward to say the least since they kind of avoid me. Funny thing is, I didn't even realize it was my ex at first because he was wearing this ridiculous South Park character costume that pretty much covered his whole body and face.

Anyway, moving on. I did have a good time getting dressed up, of course. And making over Matt into Tinkerbell. I covered his lids in shimmery, bright green eyeshadow and lined his lids with navy liner on top and a shiny white on the bottom. There was mascara, blush and lipgloss, too! He totally rocked it out. The unfortunate part is we showed up right after they finished a costume contest! Everyone told him he would have won though, hands down.

For my makeup, I went all out, too. Bright blue eyeshadow, thick black eyeliner and fire engine red lips. If I can't wear it on Halloween, when can I? Actually, I kind of liked the red lips. I'm thinking that I should work those into my routine a little more often. Except, I need to get some lip liner to help it stay a little better-- you can tell in the photos below how late it is in the night by how much lipstick is left on my lips!

Speaking of photos, without further ado, here's a glimpse of my night.

Do you think I make a good Alice?

And does Matt make a good Tink? I think so! I mean, look at that pose!

Me and my bestie, Marielle, who went as Tinkerbell's counterpart, Peter Pan. Fun fact: Marielle's mom made both her and Matt's costumes! Pretty crafty.

Me and cowgirl Kristine.

The boys. Matt, my boy, and Jasin (that's Matt's boy).

Me and the boy. He wanted to go as Ted from There's Something About Mary, but he couldn't find all the requisite parts. Let's just say he wanted to be teenage Ted before the prom-- you know, when he zips his manhood into his jeans? Yeah, that's my boyfriend for you. And he wanted me to be Mary (with my hair sticking up). That was definitely a no-go. He ended up just wearing a wig and I told him he was a "bad hair day." Haha.

I don't even know who this guy is, but he was hilarious. He dressed up--perfectly, I might add--as Marty McFly from Back to the Future. But he also did a mean Michael Jackson impression.

Kissy face at the end of the night with the boy.

Luckily, my costume is going to get more mileage than usual this year as I get to play dress up all over again next week. On real Halloween.

Hope you all had a good weekend! And thanks again Andhari for the great costume suggestion!

And I meant to tell you earlier, but clearly completely forgot. They name his nephew Braylon Paul. And I completely understand, I'm a bit of a sucker for hearing new creative names as well!

Your costume is awesome, but tinkerbell takes the cake. Too fun.

Your outfit turned out super cute! And you want to know something funny? My friend asked me today if I happened to have a white apron or a blue dress that she could borrow for her Halloween outfit. I could not for the life of me think of what her costume was... until I saw these photos. I'm pretty sure she's going to be Alice, too!

Although probably a regular Alice, not a sexy Alice, since she's dressing up for work :)
