Wasn't sure if Andrew & I'd be going to one this year- no one we hung out with seemed to be planning one this year.
Then Andrew and I got invited to a costume party that someone decided to throw together at the last minute. We did get about six days of notice. It took me almost 3 days to figure what I wanted my costume to be...
Andrew laughed at my costume idea.
He thought it was silly.
Imagine how much sillier he thought it was whenever I told him he could do it with me - do the costume with me.
He decided he'd go as a rock star!
Anyways, we had the day off together on Wednesday - we went out on a lunch date and ran a few errands - after that, I told Andrew I wanted to stop at Target to pick up a few supplies to make my costume with. He said that was fine and said he'd help me put it together.
We go into the aluminum foil/baking aisle at Target I'm looking for the aluminum foil tray that people cook turkey in - As soon as we spot them,
Andrew decided he wanted to be a NINJA TURTLE with me!!!
We got 2 of those trays - an oval shape for me and a rectangle shape for him. We grab mini spray paint cans in green and white - 2 green cotton tee shirts, a little green yarn, & some yellow fabric paint. We also got some red and purple fabric. Then we headed home...
As soon as I set everything up- Andrew took over and started participating in the craft with me. We painted our 'turtle shells' and whjpped the yellow fabric paint out and dipped a sponge into the paint to create our little '6-packs' onto the shirts. - Andrew ended up making 2 manly pecs onto his shirt- it turned out quite well!
I'm pretty sure Andrew may have had just a little more fun than I did because he did most of the painting of our turtle shells! Ha ha ha! Looks like I might be able to get him to do an arts and crafts night with me once in awhile!
Here's the aftermath- I didn't get as many pictures as I thought I did! :o(
That's all that I have! :o(
I will have to ask a few friends and see if there's anymore and hopefully I can post them up soon!
Ah - here's one more!!!
(Yes, I am wearing a tutu!!!)
Don't we look like we can kick some booty!!!!
I loved that I got to 'create' Andrew & I's costume - I also love it even more that he jumped onto the train with me and wanted to make the costumes with me and wear one!
Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
