Happy Halloween (+ Easy Costume Ideas)

If you've never worn false eyelashes before, you should really try it. Halloween is a perfect excuse! We dressed up for a Halloween party and I was a scarecrow. Obviously. This costume was so easy because I had everything I needed on hand... flannel shirt, jeans and boots, straw hat, and a package of raffia.  If you need a quick costume, this is it! (Don't forget to try some big, fluffy false eyelashes, because they are just too fun!)
The girls are scary & sweet again (see this post circa 2010) - one a corpse bride and one a candy corn witch. I bought both their costumes on Amazon for under $40 total. They are super happy, and frankly, so am I. Easy and ready to go!
So here's the whole lot of us. My hubby is the cute farmer - a real departure for my city boy! After enjoying a good laugh at the sight of him in overalls, the look grew on me. The farmer costume is another easy one, especially if you're looking to dress as a couple. We went to every thrift store in town looking for overalls, then ended up snagging a pair at Walmart (oh, the shame). Check out this rockin' family Halloween shot (from 2008!) for another easy couple costume idea.

Happy Halloween, from my family to yours!

Really great easy costumes ideas for Halloween party!! These little girls are looking so scary in their Halloween costumes. My kids are also forcing me to host a grand Halloween party at some local party space rentals in Brooklyn. I’ll definitely think about it!
