Show and Tell: Halloween Costumes

I'm linking up with Andrea today for Show and Tell Tuesdays: Halloween Costumes!  Last year's costume is probably one of, if not my absolute, favorite costumes.  The best part, it was unique and a total DIY!

I was the leg lamp from A Christmas Story.  I saw a picture of it on Pinterest and thought "I can totally make that!"  It was super easy to make, all you need is a blank shirt, some puff paint, a lampshade and some fringe.  My grandfather cut out the metal inside of the lampshade for me, then I hot glued the fringe around the bottom.  Next, I took stencils and puff paint to write FRAGILE on the front and This Side Up on the back.  I thew on some tights, and some short shorts underneath the shade, and voila! Costume complete.

Another favorite costume of mine was this:
Back in college, I dressed up as an eskimo.  Not only was the costume cute, but it was warm, too.  And let's face it, that was the main reason I bought it!  I didn't want to be cold while I was out on Halloween.

I can't wait to see everyone else's costumes!


  1. Love it! That Leg Lamp is definitely a unique one! I could use an eskimo costume. It's always so cold on Halloween in NYC!

    1. Thanks! I think I got the eskimo costume from Target? I went to school in northern Ohio and after my first Halloween there, I quickly learned costumes needed to be about warmth.
