The first costume I remember wearing is an Indian Squaw. It was for Kindergarten. I had my hair in braids, and wore a headband around my head. I had some sort of brown dress that my mom made.
After that, I remember we had a witch costume. When I first started wearing it, the hem was to my ankles. By the time my mom told me that I was too big for that costume and needed to wear something else it was up to my knees. I love dressing like a witch or a sorceress.
These last several years, I had a witch costume. I would rat out my hair pretty big, have the black make-up and fingernail polish. I looked pretty scary. I often feel like Halloween is when I can let my inner witch come out.
Whenever I was pregnant over Halloween I would wear a jack-o-lantern costume. No need to stuff it when you are pregnant.
Then three years ago I made a Crazy Cat Lady costume.
I made the dress, bought a lavender cardigan sweater and some lavender slippers from Deseret Industries. I found stuffed cats from DI, ShopKo and the Dollartree. These cats I have sewn onto the dress, sweater and slippers. One cat I carry and throw at people because it actually meows. The dress is wrinkly and stained (put there on purpose). I even made a yellow stain (a la pee stain) on the pocket where one cat is. Most people get the reference and I have gotten raves over this costume.
Kyle tells me all the time that I am just one cat away from being the crazy cat lady.
