Frighteningly Dorky from Halloween Express

September 27, 2011

I’m saying that as a good thing, really.  I love Halloween – and I love dressing up for Halloween.  Problem is?  My husband hates it..  So while I knew that we both *needed* a costume this year Winking smile I wanted to be somewhat coordinated in our efforts.

As If it wasn’t hard enough for me to find a costume that I can convince my husband to wear, I have my own issues as well:

I dislike how much skin most women’s costumes show.  I mean – I don’t have hot legs – so I’m definitely wanting a costume that doesn’t go above my knees. And I certainly want a costume that covers my belly, without being a pumpkin or Potato.

In Comes Halloween Express.  They have so much selection for all things Halloween, that it’s almost crazy! From thousands of Costume options, to Decorations and Party Supplies – They’ve got you covered!


I browsed through their amazing selection for hours before I decided on a costume set.

We usually go for ‘casual-dork’ if there ever was a title Open-mouthed smile


I came across the Where’s Waldo and Wenda costumes, and though that would be perfect!  I mean, Waldo gets to wear jeans and so you just need the striped shirt!  Perfect for Joe! Wenda isn’t trampy looking either, so its good for me!

Then Icing on the cake? I found some Chugginton Costumes for Andrew.  He loves Chuggington – and so I had him help me pick which trainee he wanted to be.. He chose Brewster! Open-mouthed smile

  1. oh my goodness, you two are SO cute as Waldo & Wendy! Love it! 🙂 With no little kids in the house, I have no idea who Brewster and/or Chuggington is, but your little dude is super cute too!

  2. Wow, so many choices! If I won, I’d probably get the Robin toddler costume for my son, since the hubs has been Batman for the past 4 years and is not going to change until the costume stops fitting, LOL.
    Since I’ll be 8.5 months pregnant on halloween, none of their costumes will fit me. 🙂 I’ll have to figure out something clever on my own. So I guess I’d use the rest of the $75 to get some fun decorations for our house, since we don’t have any halloween decor.

  3. Haha I love the where’s Waldo and Wendy costumes! I would get my little guy a bat costume.
