Halloween Countdown: Continuing to Take the Easy Way Out

With Halloween fast approaching I've started thinking about what costume would best fit my mood and personality.  In years past I've tried to collaborate with Chris and jump on the couples costume train.  
There was the year we went as Clark Kent and Lois Lane 
and the year that we dressed up as Alice and the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland (our dog Kirby was the white rabbit!).




 Some of my favorite (and cheapest) costumes have come from the crap I had lying around my house.  Since I spent years working as a lifeguard I had all the makings for a drowned lifeguard (irony!)
Then there was the year that I dressed up as Cruella Devillle from 101 Dalmatians:
The funny thing about this costume is that I already owned the black dress, fishnet tights, red fish net gloves, costume jewelry, wig and pointy heels.  My mom had the "dalmatian" jacket so all I actually bought to pull this costume together were the fake cigarettes and cigarette holder.  
One year when money was tight I went as a cowgirl using the cowboy hat and boots I already owned with some stone washed jeans and a button down shirt:

As I mentioned in yesterdays post I fell prey to the "I can dress like a whore because it's Halloween" craze for a few years, dressing as the St. Pauli Girl:

And an "Angel":


(I kid you not, I was actually walking around in a slip I found at a thrift store!)  I'm sensing a theme in my costumes over the years, even when I wasn't attempting to flaunt the "goods" as it were!
So, there you have it.  The progression of Chelsea's Halloween Costumes over her many many years!  And yet, I still have no idea what I'm going to be this year!!!  Looking for ideas if anyone has any (please no Elvira suggestions!)  Tomorrow I promise to get back to Stunt Zombies original mission of reviewing actual Halloween items.  Cross my heart and hope to die!
