Are you planning to dress up with your family for Halloween this year? Even though this Halloween will be socially distant, there are still fun ways you can dress up and host a FaceTime or Zoom party with your family and friends and share your costumes with one another. This fall, I challenge you to try a fun virtual Halloween costume contest with your friends – head to your local Goodwill and thrift a look to surprise your friends with on Halloween night! You can even plan a fun Halloween photo shoot with your family in your own home with your costumes on to commemorate all hallows eve!
This fall, Goodwill Tulsa asked me to visit their retail store, including their Halloween Zone to show you how you can create some fun and easy Halloween costumes this season. Plus, did you know when you shop at Goodwill Tulsa your purchases help provide training and job placement services to people who have challenges in finding work. Shopping at Goodwill Tulsa also has a direct impact on people, the community and the environment.
Check out the Goodwill Tulsa website to see what you can expect from them to ensure your shopping experience is safe this season, along with details on their upcoming sales and specials!
I am so excited to share with you the three Halloween costumes I created from both new and used items all found at Goodwill Tulsa for my son and I! Keep reading for some frightfully fun costume inspirations:
The bad news I got this fall was that my braces will have to stay on a little longer than I had anticipated – but the good news is that I can pull off a Mabel Pines costume this fall without any problem!
Mabel is the brace-faced twin sister to Dipper Pines on the Disney series, Gravity Falls. I love the paranormal and supernatural adventures that ensue during Mabel and Dipper’s visits with their Great Uncle (Grunkle) Stan. They also help to run his tourist trap “Mystery Shack” – with a plot line like this you know that it is full of spooky fun for all ages (my all-time favorite episode is “Summerween!”).
Keep reading to see how I decided to make the most of having adult braces during Halloween by becoming Mabel Pines!
I love Bob’s Burgers on Fox! It’s always been one of my favorite shows and the humor is always spot on. I love it so much so, that I decided I had to copy Gene Belcher’s Halloween costume he made this year.
I was surprised at the end of the recent episode because it actually features Fiona Apple singing the closing credits. Check out this Pitchfork article to see a photo of Gene’s Fiona Applesauce costume I was inspired to create and to learn more about Fiona apple’s special song for the Halloween episode.
I adore Fiona Apple’s music, so I knew I would equally love being her saucy aunt for Halloween.
If you want to see how I become Fiona Applesauce, keep on reading!
This year’s Monster Mash Bash was a hit and a scary good time was had by all! I appreciated everyone’s compliments towards my creepy castle – some guests assumed it was just to liven up the party but I had to divulge, this creepy castle gets creeped out on Sept. 1 every year. The only way I know to enjoy Halloween decor and hoarding habits is to display it sooner and longer!
Keep reading to see some photos of my guests and their costumes and to get some inspiration for your upcoming or next Halloween shindig.
I think I decided that I was going to be Ash Williams for Halloween this year sometime last year. It’s not unusual for me to keep a running list of all of the characters I might want to transform into come Halloween. The idea hit me while watching the Ash VS Evil Dead series. I was enjoying it so much I decided I needed a piece of the Evil Dead universe myself and become the deadite-fighting-anti-hero: Ash!
