I really like Halloween. I grew up in the 80's which, if you were in the same religious circles I was in, meant that the latter half of the decade (and early 90's) were characterized with different evangelists coming around telling you how Halloween was going to send you to Hell.
So basically it was a fun time in pentacostal circles, no?
So... there were a great deal of costumes that were off limits! Also, I am creative AFTER the fact (sometimes), so I could always come up with a great costume after halloween. Sadness!
Well, for the last four years, my friends and I have thrown a halloween party. We've had presidential hopefuls, Scooby-licious characters, rednecks, football players, an oompa-loompa, and Dog the Bounty Hunter.
As you can imagine, each year a proverbial gauntlet is thrown down to be better (and funnier) with your costume!
Basically, I've been a disappointment in years past.
this year, I brought my A game!
My original intention was to be Sue Sylvester. Sadly, Adidas decided not to manufacture enough red track suits (FAIL!), so I started back at square one. Fortunately, my Mom is the sharpest tack in the drawer. She mentioned Flo, from the Progressive commercials, and I decided to run with it.

Yay! Success!! Here are a few pics... enjoy!
