So this is the time for me to review our adult couple Halloween costumes that we purchased from buycostumes.com. Every year, my brother and sister-in-law host a Halloween costume party for grownups. Before I started attending these events, I was reluctant and didn’t really think I’d like it too much. I enjoyed dressing up when I was little – although maybe the anticipation was really for the sweets – and had a lot of fun creating costumes for my kids when they were young. I hadn’t dressed up myself in quite a few years. Well, it was surprisingly fun and we are definitely looking forward to next year!
Halloween Costume Details:
Yes they really were a bit cheap and plasticky (as expected at this price point) , but detailed enough and lots of fun. Hub really loves all things SteamPunk, so I had to try. The fit was as described so no issues there either. Love the boots coverings and little details. Granted, it was a little uncomfortable to wear all night really due to the material, but then I guess that is to be expected with Halloween costumes right? Hub had no comfort problems and enjoyed the googles. I’m sure the alcohol contributed to that to a certain degree. Note to self: A top hat on a 6’2″ man is maybe a little much. He hit every overhead light in the house! (I didn’t have any problems with that myself) In fact, the biggest issue I had with the costumes really, was that hardly anyone “got” it. I would say, “You know, SteamPunk!” Crickets.
I wasn’t sure exactly what the makeup should be, so I just smeared some around Hub’s eyes and added some darkening to the beard. This year, I did not drink and so was a designated driver and able to ensure the safe return home of several friends and ourselves. Next year, we will try to plan ahead a bit.
Highlights from others
So we seem to have some incredibly creative friends. My brother and his wife (the hosts) were Eddy and Magenta from the Rocky Horror Picture show. I literally didn’t recognize him! Weird No ‘stache.
