A great night of drinking, eating, and catching up with family and friends was had by all at my cousin Lisa’s recent adult Halloween party. This year, I had the opportunity to finally attend with my husband after we moved back into the area, and we were so excited to make our own costumes and see how Lisa and her husband Tom decked out their home for the festivities.
I was not only thoroughly impressed by the decorations (every nook and cranny in the house screamed Halloween), but the guests also came dressed to impress in their October 31st finest. Below are some of the coolest couple and handmade costumes from the night. When you’re done checking out guests, make sure to New Halloween Costumes too!
There were some awesome homemade costumes, including some unique couple’s get-ups, too. My husband Aaron and I dressed as Sharknado and Finn Shepherd (the lead character) from the hit Sci-Fi movie Sharknado. To make the Sharknado costume, I wrapped myself in tulle and stuck felt sharks all over me, and I made the chainsaw out of an empty kitty litter box.
I thought my costume was rockin’ until my cousin Bruce showed up with a Sharknado headdress that LIT UP! At the costume contest, he won “Scariest Costume.”
My cousin Mindy won “Funniest Costume” as the Bun in the Oven. (She’s got a baby on the way.) Her husband Mike was the “baker.” *rolls eyes*
My sister Kathleen and brother-in-law Sam came as Sloth and Chunk from the movie The Goonies. I loved the throw-back, and the costumes were spot-on, from the fake teeth for sloth to the brown shaggy wig for Chunk (which my brother-in-law hated!).
A shout-out to the hosts: My cousins Lisa and Tom went as Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz.
Some of my other favorites included Edward Scissorhands (who won Best Male Costume), and Doctor Who (the seventh). Where did he get that sweater vest?
Happy Halloween from everyone and Party411.com, and enjoy making your Halloween costumes this year!
