Well… Here it is on Thursday and of course I’m waiting until the “day of” to find a cute costume idea for our church’s Fall Harvest Carnival. Last year I went as a princess and had a “ball” (ba da bum) As I was scrolling Pinterest, I found some funny costumes that reminded me of this original “Monday’s Makes Me Smile” post. So if you are like me, and are scrambling at the last minute to find a costume… here are some ideas for you. These things still make me smile. Hope they give you an idea and a grin or two also.
PS: The easiest costume I’ve ever worn was a red blazer… as Sarah Palin. From the moment she came onto the scene, I hardly go anywhere in a crowd when someone doesn’t mention that we look alike. (I take that as a compliment, btw.) Too bad none of the kids at our church will know who that is.
The www is full of ideas… some are brilliant and some are… well… let’s just say… please don’t repeat, if you can help it.
I think this one began as a sweet thought – but apparently a better idea in the mind than in real life:
I really don’t know what to say about this one or the ones below:
Hmm… I think they all started as cute ideas. That’s all I have to say about that. However, IF you want to see more awkward family costumes and photos, just click here.
Now these are so adorable that they really make me smile! I guess this is what they mean when they say “Babies are so cute, I could just eat ‘em up!”
These cute family costumes are awesome!
This next one is one of my favorites!
This is a collection of 60 cute family costumes. Some need a little more time than the “last minute.”
What really makes me smile is thinking of getting MY family in one of these get ups today. Especially James & Nathan!!! Hahaha!
Below are a few other creative and tasteful costumes. They, too, make me smile. And they make me want to beg my husband to dress up with me and go to Wal-mart. But I digress…
This is a super easy couple’s costume idea.
Peace and Quiet. One person dresses as a hippie, the other is a mime. The hippie can wear flared pants, a tye-dyed shirt and a headband. The mime can wear black pants, a white and black striped shirt and paint his/her face white.
A few other EASY costume ideas would be to dress like a certain piece of candy (or wear a huge poster board made to look like the candy), and attach a slogan from this post. This is what I may end up doing for our Church’s carnival. I went as “Smartie Pants” one year in Nashville:
And if all else fails, I guess you could go out like this:
Haha. Many blessings of the Lord to you all ~
