It’s been a while since Scott and I have gone all-out in the dressing up for Halloween department. This year, I decided to change that. With a costume party invitation looming, and some extra time on my hands, I opted to step up our Halloween game and come up with a funny, slightly outrageous couple’s costume.
My initial idea (please don’t think less of me after you read this) was to go as Oscar Pistorius and his girlfriend. It was creative, timely, with just a dash of inappropriateness! While Scott was thrilled with the prospect of pissing a lot of people off under the guise of OP, I ultimately decided not to pull the trigger. (Errr….no pun intended?) Let’s be real — dressing as Oscar and Reeva would have been majorly offensive. And while I love pushing the envelope, I didn’t want to anger my fellow party attendees to the point of being pelted to death with stale Halloween candy. Also? The logistics of transforming Scott into Oscar were rather…well… complicated.
Now that you think I’m a terrible, insensitive person for even considering the above idea, have a gander of who we actually decided to go as…
The costumes were a hit, and Scott and I had way too much fun pulling off our characters. Speaking of characters, Suzanne was on pretty bad behavior the majority of the night. She disrupted a very serious awards ceremony, assaulted several innocent souls on the dance floor, and was just generally smart-alecky. She did however do a couple of backflips and allow anyone who wished to snap her thongatard like a slingshot…which apparently was enough to permit her to stay.
Richard carried himself with slightly more decency, aside from spending most of the night on the dance floor drinking straight out of a cheap bottle of wine. I’m sure the “real” Richard would be horrified by such an act. (Or maybe he’d just do the grapevine and glare at me?)
In other news, I’ve officially decided I’ll never be coloring my hair brown or perming it.
And no, Dad, I didn’t steal your old shorts. (Sadly, his are much skimpier than these.)
