It is amazing to me how much less exciting a holiday like Halloween can be when I know I won’t be raiding the kids candy buckets after they crash from their sugar high! It has been an annual tradition for Collin and I to sit down on Halloween night, play a fun board game and binge on the candy our children gathered. The fact that the candy from our last parade still sits in the cupboard is quite an accomplishment for me.
I would like to share pictures of last Halloween with you. I loved this costume, it was very well made and fairly inexpensive for it’s quality. I had the opportunity to wear it several times and I think that it fit me well. My daughter Gwen and I were each different versions of Alice from the classic Disney movie Alice in Wonderland. She was the miniature “shrunken” version and I was the “enlarged” version.
This year Gwen went her own way choosing to be a spider ( I don’t have a picture yet), so I was on my own. My husband had recently gotten his Star Trek Captain’s uniform and basically refused to take it off. Inspired, I went on a hunt for a plus size women’s Star Trek science officer uniform. I ordered one on Amazon and it fits great. The quality is awesome, it has held up to be washed and steam pressed.
Here I am in a classic Original Series Star Trek dress uniform and amazing Enterprise leggings. I will most likely wear fleece lined black leggings for trick or treating but the licensed leggings were a fun addition for the day time. Halloween feels different this year, but in the best way possible. I am ready to chase my kids around for hours, trick or treating and at our annual indoor Halloween carnival. I will go proudly with my husband in our matching costumes knowing that I look great on the outside because I feel fantastic on the inside!
Happy Halloween to all you ghouls out there!
