First step: hit up your local Goodwill or Salvation Army and hunt for the most ridiculous pattern-filled wardrobe you can imagine.
Remember: It’s all in the details folks!
What I was rockin’:
A ridiculous hat, ridiculous make-up that these pictures really don’t do justice. Hot pink lips and bright green eyeshadow? No thank you! Oh, and the rockin’ earrings from the 80’s.
Tacky scarf, shell necklace, and chums with sunglasses and apparently a triple chin.
Mis-buttoned print shirt and patterned capris.
Sandals closely resembling octopi?
An AARP bag with sun block and bug spray.
And a tacky bag that expands for all the shopping I’m about to do. The more patterns the better!
And a travel companion, obvs.
We can’t forget the maps!
Or the polaroid….
More patterns ensue… and a rockin’ fanny pack!
He’s got his chums and sunglasses and shell necklace too!
And a Washingtonian won’t get anywhere without socks and sandals!
And we can’t forget about the hat!
And yes, we carried the luggage around as well!
At the party, we actually ran into another tourist!
What do you guys think? I think we did it better. Tackier. We talked about doing the sunscreen nose thing and thought it would be a bit much.
We had a great time checking out all the other guests at the party!
Olive Oyl + Popeye (the hosts!)
A few pirates
A gold digger (lol)
A doctor and his nurses
A Greek Goddess
A couple of witches
A bumble bee
And a bunch more!
The food spread was decent – and I totally mobbed on it all.
And washed it down with some Pumpkin Ale.
But not too much because I took notes from this guy:
Things might have gotten a little crazy.
And there was definitely some musical hats going on!
Redneck Santa got a little confused by what holiday it was…
It made for a good laugh!
Yes, he gave the trannie a sausage. L. O. L.
We had a really good time and we’re happy we went! Driving home at midnight in the pouring rain was not fun however. But today is looking gorgeous so hopefully the trick-or-treaters tonight will stay dry!
