Happy Monday! I hope you all had great weekends. Earlier this month I put together a post of some of our past couples costumes (here), and this weekend we got to debut this year's costume.
Dave and I were Popeye and Olive Oyl!
We had a blast making the costumes, read more below!
For Dave's costume we got a $1 black polo shirt from the thrift store and blue scrub pants. I sewed on his red color and yellow buttons using colored felt pieces, and sewed up a yellow felt belt. We found his sailor hat at the army barracks store and his corn cob pipe at the local smoke shop. Popeye wouldn't be complete with his anchor tattoo that I drew on, and his spinach! We taped a box of spinach to a glass mug :) For my costume I picked up a red shirt and black skirt from the thrift shop (both $2 each), sewed on pieces of white felt and glued a strip of yellow ribbon to the bottom of the skirt. I pinned my hair up in Olive Oyl fashion, threw on some pearl earrings, and added my brown boots and white socks. What do you guys think! We had so much fun!
Did you ladies dress up for halloween? Do tell! Glad we celebrated this weekend because with Sandy on the way it seems real Halloween won't be happening. I hope all of you in the Northeast stay safe throughout this storm! As always thanks so much for reading.
