Woooooooe is me, a Halloween predicament.

Yesterday when I left work it was dark outside, dark I tell you at 6:30 pm. And the weather was in the 70s/80s not the 100s. So yes, yes it is finally October like weather in good ole Southern California and I love it (minus the dark after work thing, that I could still go without). And with Octoberness and Autumness comes one of my favorite holidays, Halloween!

As you may or may not know I love dressing up and I love theme parties, and of course Halloween is just one big ole theme party. In college I was all about the group costumes and since I've been with Matt I have have throughly enjoyed the couples costumes and this year is no different. Matt and I have been racking our brains to think of a fun couples costume and we've both been drawing blanks. In our years of coupledom we've gone as Pebbles and Bamm Bamm and a nurse and patient, so both of those are out. Other than that, we're stuck.

Other costumes that are highly entertaining but have also been nixed include:

the bad genie

a human beer pong table


and the biggest show on earth


Clearly none of those costumes would suffice for Matt or myself so alas we are in a predicament. Hence where you, my creative readers, come into play. Please oh please share your Halloween costume ideas and if we happen to go with your suggestion you'll win a most fabulous prize!

So share away, we need the help!

Woo!



happy wednesday!

What about a Genie and Jasmine??? I think that'd be a good idea.

Auburn Kat said...

I wish it was still that warm here!!!

I'm trying to think of a good costume...you could always dress up as Madonna and Matt can be A-Rod?

Princess Extraordinaire said...

You could really start a controversy and go as McCain and Palin...lol

lspoon said...

Two words: matching lederhosen.

Alexa said...

kateastrophe said...

My best friend and her husband were Foxy Cleopatra and Goldmember last year. IT WAS SO FUNNY. Specifically the husband in the tiny gold shorts. They've also been Reno 911 characters too.

Goldilocks and a bear . . . Deb and Napoleon Dynamite . . . Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth . . . Mr and Mrs Incredible . . .

OK that's all I got :)

Daddy Dan said...

I'll throw a few out there:

A gunslinger and saloon girl

A Samurai and Geisha girl

or how about you dress like a man and Matt dress like a woman? (I'm sure he won't like this one)

Miss Musing said...

My boyfriend and I are being Tinkerbell and Peter Pan :)

Allison said...

Oh how fun! Ok how about...

cop and prisoner
angel and demon
adam and eve (cheesy?)
adam and steve (cheesier?) hehe
gilligan and ginger
thurston howell III and lovey howell
jfk and marilyn monroe

Ok that's enough for now. Good luck coming up with something. I know you two will look fabulous and don't forget to take lots of pictures.

WeezerMonkey said...

Good God, these costumes are too much!

Michelle and the City said...

hmm that is a tough one. hansel and gretel maybe?

well-intentioned heartbreaker said...

for some reason i picture you to be a big Grease fan. (i either read this somewhere, or i'm completely wrong.. or psychic..)

anyhow, you two would make a cute danny & sandy combo ;)

My favorite couple halloween costume that Hubby and I did was when we were Johnny and June Carter Cash. he dressed all in black and carried a guitar and I put on the seventies wig go go boots and a flowery hippie dress and Voila!!

Binary Blonde said...

Hahaha! Those costumes are hilarious! I'm still not sure if I should even get a maternity costume, as I am due on Halloween!!! What to do, what to do...

Anyway, here are my ideas for you and Matt.

Some famous personality ideas:
Homer and Marge
Shrek and Fiona
Austin Powers and Felicity Shagwell

More basic ideas:
Priest and nun
Nut and bolt
Chips and dip
Rum and coke

Whatever you go as, I hope to see pics!

Janie said...

I'm still trying to convince my roomie that we should be Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera circa 1999... but maybe you and Matt could be Britney and K-Fed?

rs27 said...

Ace and Gary..the ambiguosly gay duo from SNL.

always a crowd pleaser

Studio222 Photography said...

Haha! Those are really funny. We are in the same predicament as well so I don't have any good suggestions. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

La Petite Chic said...

Crap, Blogger ate my last comment!! Here are some ideas:
*a priest and Catholic school girl
*Bonnie and Clyde
*he can go as Freud and you just wear a slip and together you'll be a Freudian slip!

brookem said...

palin and joe sixpack.

Lacey Bean said...

Last year I was a beer maiden, and Dave was a beer keg. This year I wanted to be Princess Toadstool and he can be Mario but he's being a tool about it. Otherwise maybe he should be a male cheerleader and I can be a football player. Hahaha

sarah marie p said...

Ahhh! I'm scared of those scandalous costumes! haha.

Valley Girl said...

I'm not much of a group costume kinda girl, but I love the idea of couples costumes. If we were actually leaving for Halloween this year, I'd want Ron to be John McCain and I'd dress up as Stupid, I mean, Sarah Palin. ;)

Caz said...

Australia doesn't celebrate Halloween!!!! Seriously, I am so upset. I think I'll just need to throw my own costume party soon.

Anyway, I like the McCain and Palin ideas. Awesome.
ummm... I'd have to think of more. AB and haven't done joint costumes before

Bayjb said...

Wow that's funny. The genie one is just so wrong but the beer pong guy is hilarious! That's a solid choice.

transienttravels said...

I think that the Palin and McCain idea is awesome.

My boyfriend and I once found out we were going to a Halloween party 20 minutes before it started. He was an architect major and I was a rugby player (for real). I figured we could just dress as each other- I carried a triangle ruler thing around, wore my glasses and borrowed one of his college shirts that said architecture on it somewhere. He took my knee brace and wore it on his arm like it was broken, through on one of those preppy rugby shirts from American Eagle or some place like that, and then I used my make up to give him black eyes.

That doesn't help you at all, but that's the only couple costume I have ever done.

That genie costume
scares me! Ickk.
I loveee Halloween, too.
Wooo.

How about Matt as a frat
guy and Katelin as
a walk of shame victim...

kay* said...

HEIDI & SPENCER

come one! this is a great one! you must, you must :)

Charistastic said...

I dunno... I kinda like the Bacardi and Cola idea... That or damn... I forgot what I was gonna suggest... I was distracted by the Sox tying the game!! Um, lemme think a minute, it was gonna be good, I swear... Oh yea! You should totally go as Eggs and Bacon!! c'mon! it'll be great! Katelin, of course you would be the bacon and Matt would be the eggs. =)

tom said...

That bad genie Halloween costume is hilarious. Happy Halloween..!

Playful Professional said...
