Happy Halloween

Chris and I went to a costume party on Saturday. This was a big deal for me because if you know me at all, you know that I detest dressing up in a costume of any kind. Even when I was a kid I felt ridiculous when dressing up for Halloween. I don’t consider myself an overly serious person, and I don’t think I was an overly serious kid–but how else can I explain my hatred of dressing up? Don’t get me wrong; I absolutely LOVE seeing other people dressed up, I just don’t like to do it myself.

But this year, for some reason, I decided to play along and actually plan and wear a costume to the party we were attending. I’ve always loved Mary Poppins and have wanted to BE her since I can remember, so dressing up as her for Halloween was the closest I could get. I guess I got pretty close, though, because I won Best Female Costume that night! I have to say, I had a pretty fun time dressing up this time. Chris looked absolutely adorable as Bert the Chimney Sweep, don’t you think?

Our friends James and Melanie gave us a ride to the party and their costumes were AWESOME. James won Best Male Costume, with Melanie only one point behind me for best female. She even had a real prosthetic preggo belly, with an outie belly button and everything! They were a spot-on Juno and Pauly Bleeker. They recreated the pose from the movie’s poster and I just couldn’t resist dressing the image up a little.

Hope you all have a fantastic Halloween, whatever you do! I’ve got some weddings and portrait sessions to shoot throughout the month so I’ll be a blogging fool in no time!
