I have always loved Halloween. I love it so much that I went trick-or-treating every year….until my senior year in high school. Yeah….I was that kid. I got pretty good at putting together makeshift costumes with just the stuff I had in my room….and now that I live in a sorority house….it is even better. Imagine it….dozens and dozens of closets….that all have some pretty awesome random stuff to make costumes out of. This is why this year was the best Halloween…yet.
The past two years….Halloween has been semi-anti-climactic. Freshman year I didn’t really know where to go or what to do….and last year was Parent’s Weekend so I didn’t dress up. But this year…I was excited and ready. For Round I of Halloween (Friday), my roommate Meghan and I decided to dress up as a pair…..and what better pair to dress up as than the Olsen twins. We decided to be the Olsen twins first…but then we had to decide if we wanted to be the 5 year old 90s version…or the present….kind of trashy version. Naturally, we chose the latter. So we raided the closets in our house….and came up with this….
Please note the Starbucks cups….mine was actually a peppermint hot chocolate…which isn’t very Mary Kate, but I figured that I could let that part slide. We had a great time having bad attitudes and not smiling all night…and just being very bohemian all around. For Round II (Saturday), I didn’t want to go all out….so I decided to be Sarah Palin. This is my go-to costume…since I have suits, the glasses, and most importantly…the hair. Check it. (And as a disclaimer…I don’t agree with her politics…but I do enjoy impersonating her.)
Between my two nights of Halloween, I had a great time getting dressed up…and I am extremely proud of the fact that I only spent $3 on both of my outfits (on my Starbucks). Impressive, huh?
