Two trends: Flannel and cardboard props.
  1. Meredith Grey Swift
    Fa14346a c67c 4785 b32d 8d7ccda4ac3b
    Getting this shirt made for my Taylor Swift 1989 Tour show was one of the best decisions of my life.
  2. Flying Monkey
    So good I did it twice. The first time was as a preteen when my friends all went as Wizard of Oz characters and instead of going at Dorothy, The Wicked Witch of the West, or even the Cowardly Lion but NO I WANTED to be a Flying Monkey. I made my wings out of cardboard and then it snowed while we were trick or treating and my wings disintegrated. This story is such a hit with everyone that I made new cardboard wings and brought this back as a senior in high school.
  3. Bad Yearbook Photo
    7c8cdcb7 db6f 41f8 89f3 561079ae034d
    Solidified me as a clever, funny college freshman.
  4. The Spirit of New Hampshire
    Ff8424fd 0780 4479 a330 3f2cd576c46c
    I pulled this together out of items I owned in an hour. I truly captured my NH roots. #LFOD
  5. Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain
    E775a88e ded7 4203 8a43 209f7c7e2152
    This year @ebronstein and I really nailed this pairs costume.
  6. Blue Power Ranger
    4c8282e3 ba9c 437a bf1b bff71088e2c5
    My mother made me a super cute bunny costume when I was a child and the night before Halloween I decided that I wanted to be a Blue Power Ranger so she was a saint and made me a fantastic costume.
  7. Luke Danes
    E5a3fc06 0d89 481e a03a d74e729ef455
    Last year I wasn't going to ~do~ Halloween but then I learned that everyone was dressing up at work and I pulled this together REAL quick. Plus, it was timely because Gilmore Girls just went up on Netflix and everyone was rewatching.
  8. 1989 Christmas Edition
    83775fbf e31e 4242 840c 3b26b70c049d
    Taylor Swift should honestly own this sweatshirt.
  9. Emerson Kid Lion
    385b39e9 ba9c 48d0 a011 856e0a567272
    This was a very topical costume in 2011 when my college couldn't get enough of this self-referential meme, but it doesn't really hold up years later.
  10. Pumpkin
    052533b2 86bd 414b 99c1 7b92c1af8d5c
    The cutest baby costume. 🎃
  11. Lion
    My mom constructed a BEAUTIFUL lion's mane out of yarn.
  12. 12 Year Old College Student
    D7d4a288 e4b9 4237 bc16 58521e3c0cae
    The theme of my 22nd birthday party was Minus A Decade so I dressed as my 12 year old college student self. It was fantastic.
  13. Dalmatian
    My kindergarten costume would be ranked higher if I hadn't slipped in my Dalmatian slippers and smacked my head while running in the classroom.
  14. Hilary Duff in A Cinderella Story
    This costume for my Jr. High movie characters themed school dance was SPOT ON but no one at my garbage school knew who I was.
  15. Police Officer
    Complete with a cardboard police car masterpiece.
  16. Bunny
    55e13937 d0e0 4f95 8bb2 bc902ed6aa10
    The costume my mother made that I swapped out for a Blue Power Ranger.
  17. Cowgirl

    A solid look for this Hoedown Throwdown party.
