After SO much consideration, I decided to go with Miss Piggy from the Muppets. I wanted a fun costume but one that would push me beyond just making a pretty dress. Between the nose, wig, and make-up it was definitely a challenge. But it turned out great and I had a lot of fun!

Sadly, the office (colored) photos are pretty blurry. One of the many problems with working in a poorly lit, cold, buried basement...
But you can see the fun magenta, the hard-core make-up, and that piggy nose.
As I'm always looking for an excuse to dress up, I went to a club the following night. As Miss Piggy is not a very dance-friendly costume (I think it's the train), I pulled out an old stand-by.
That's right, Tinkerbell! I think every girl under 5'4" has worn one at one time or another.
Liz was also there havign a blast in her Romy and Michelle inspired post-it dress. It took her and her post-it pal DAYS to complete. And they looked fantastic. Santa was not part of OUR group, but how can I not get a pic?!
Lastly, I wore one final costume to take Josie trick-or-treating to Grandma and Grandpa. They're the only ones who still give me candy... For that last costume, I wanted to wear a coat and tease my hair. I added my no-named slob of a "cat" and was ready to go.
And because no post is ever complete without a picture of Meghan, here's one of her torturing her legion of gingerbread skeletons. She did an amazing job decorating!
As Christmas time rolls around, I hope to be doing more here. My tree is up, my gift list is written, and my baking has started. The only thing left is making fun Christmas crafts!
