I’m super bummed out that my favorite holiday of the year is already over. Halloween season is always too short and this year was no exception. Over the weekend, Jason and I visited Austin, TX to celebrate Halloween and we both had a great time. You can check out some photos of our costumes below!
Normally, we celebrate Halloween with friends so I will admit that I missed seeing everyone. (Definitely checked Facebook/Instagram more than a few times that night hoping to see everyone’s costumes.) Jason and I played a running game all weekend by making strangers costumes compete for various “Best Of” categories. (Final Results- Best Group Costume went to a Mad Max crew with an amazing female Immortan Joe, Best Couples Costume went to a particularly well put together Forest Gump + Jenny, and Best Overall Costume? Obviously David S. Pumpkins. Any questions?)
ANYWAYS, I take dressing up pretty seriously. This year I was all set to be Log Lady from Twin Peaks. Like ALL SET, I had everything. But when I checked the weather again for Austin, I realized that the formally projected 70 degree highs had now turned into close to 90 degree highs. There was no way I could make it in all of the layers involved to pull off a proper Log Lady ensemble. Jason was prepped to be Dale Cooper so I looked into the other Twin Peaks characters. Fortunately, I had everything I needed to make a fairly convincing Audrey costume.
At the end of the day, everything worked out great. Jason was doing a great impression of Agent Cooper and I didn’t die from heat exhaustion in my costume. We even had someone recognize/compliment us so I think that counts as a successful Halloween.
Here’s some of the pics we snapped before our night out:
In hindsight, I wish I had time to die my hair and pin it up to make it shorter. At least I have everything I need for Log Lady next year!
That’s all, folks. I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
How did you celebrate Halloween?
