Halloween Planning

October 31st is coming. It always sneaks up on me! Halloween has never been my favorite holiday (even though I love dressing up!)... but what holiday can top Christmas anyway? :)

When I was in grade school, I dressed up as a princess almost every year... any excuse to wear a pretty dress! But seriously. I was a princess probably 5 years in a row. But ever since I got too old to go trick-or-treating, Halloween has been a different experience. Basically I've been slacking. The end of October always catches me by surprise and I'm stuck wearing a pair of ears and a tail. Lame.

This year I'm a little ahead hehe. I'm pretty much obsessed with Sutton Foster these days and every show that she's been in on Broadway. Currently she is playing Reno Sweeney in Anything Goes. It's running in NYC until April 2012 and I am doing my best to get over there to see Sutton perform before she moves on to another awesome show. If you want to check out a clip of the show click here.

All that to say I am going to be Reno Sweeney for Halloween! Sounds fun, right? I'm going to do my best to get a little sailor outfit and a blonde wig. (Not something quite so "little" as in the poster, but hopefully something equally cute).

Well I went to Target this afternoon and found a blonde curly wig for $8. Score! Let's face it. I'm asian and it's going to be kind of funny. So we'll see if the wig makes the cut but at least I have it just in case... I also have some cute little white shorts and blue & white striped heels so far.

I've been searching online for possible costume ideas and here are some inspirational pieces I've found...

The red dress is my fav so far. So adorable... but way too pricey so it's working as inspiration!

What is everyone else dressing up as for Halloween?
