Halloween Costume

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  To me it signals the beginning of the holiday season - Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are all just around the corner!  My law school does a big Halloween party at a bar in DC, which I'm super excited about.

That said, coming up with a costume can be tough.  Shopping for a Halloween costume is bad enough, nevermind the fact that pretty much everything out there is either boring or skanktaculor.  (As I was explaining to one of my friends from school, I can't ask someone for a legal job who has seen my butt hanging out while dressed as a sexy beer garden girl.) Plus, our party is this Thursday, so I don't want something too out there that's going to have people giving me weird looks on the way home.

There are also a million other considerations involved.  I want something I can wear comfortable shoes with.  I want something that's sexy without being slutty.  I don't want to spend a lot of money, especially on things that I'll use once (those premade costumes are like $50+ and the lack of quality pretty much makes it a disposable item).  I want something that's recognizable (no one got my Sookie Stackhouse costume last year!).

Although it might be a bit boring, I've opted to embrace my horse girl roots and go as a cowgirl.

My dress is, of course, not Herve Leger (It's Express).  And I'm actually taking my (real!) spurs off my riding boots and putting them on my Fryes for the night.  

What are your considerations when coming up with a Halloween costume?  Do you have any big plans for this year?  Have you decided on a costume yet?


  1. Nothing wrong with a good cowgirl costume! Have fun this year :)

  2. Its "Faux-ger" as Bethenny would say
