As I’ve said, we’re heading to Disney for leave (YAY) and while we’re there, we’re going to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. We’ve been during the fall before, but never to the Halloween Party.
Now, I know I’m famous for my Boo Humbug spirit…if you’re new around here, I kind of count the days until the Halloween season is over…and I loathe that there is a season. It may have something to do with the fact that my birthday is the day before Halloween.
Anyway, typically I wouldn’t dress up, but we’re going to DISNEY for a Halloween party! So we have to dress up, right? So, I’ve been brainstorming with SoldierMan for ideas, and we’ve narrowed it down to a few options. Of course, there is some qualifying criteria:
>The costumes have to be easy to transport. We’re flying to Disney, so they can’t take up much room.
>They can’t be too expensive. Obviously.
>They have to be comfortable. We’ll be wearing them, mostly outdoors, for at least 8 hours in Florida. Yes, in the fall, but the last time we went (the exact same week we’re going this time, btw) I wore shorts.
That being said, here’s what I’m down to:
Where’s Waldo and Carmen Sandiego
*Fairly Simple. Finding the red trench and hat would be the hardest part.
*Easy to put in a suitcase.
*Have to find the trench and hat
*Hats and a coat = things to keep track of.
*Long sleeves might get hot
Captain America and Black Widow
*I already have the hair
*We wouldn’t bring the shield, so no real accessories to keep track of
*No way I can make these. That means $$$$
*Also might get warm
*Body suit. Need I say more.
Indiana Jones and Lara Croft
*Easy, we already have almost everything except the hat and whip.
*We can buy the hat and whip at Disney at the Indiana Jones attraction
*Fun but not too sexy for Disney (or me)
*“So who are you supposed to be?”
*I’d be tempted to get a wig so I can do the braid, which = hot & $$$
*They wouldn’t let me carry a toy gun.
So, there you go. That’s what we’re tossing between, including Option 4 which is “Go as civilians.” Which is just as viable an option as the others.
No matter what we choose, it’ll mean getting started on pulling it all together…really soon. So we need to make a decision. Thoughts?
