For every year that Big A and I have been together, we’ve dressed up for Halloween. It’s just our thing. It’s not for everyone but it’s something we both love to do. One of our first dates as a couple actually happened to be around Halloween – I was a pirate. He was a lumberjack. Our love was meant to be, obviously. Since then we’ve been Gladiators and even Beetlejuice! But this year, we wanted to do something a little more fun, so we went as Minions!
These DIY costumes were super easy to create. We purchased almost everything from Amazon, but my overalls are actually from Forever 21+. They were way more comfortable than I remember overalls being in the 90s. In fact, I decided to keep mine and rock them sometime this summer. Never too late to be in the overall game. Care to join?
So where did we wear these Despicable costumes? (see what I did there?) Well last year, we attended the Congress Hotel Haunted Halloween Ball and we had so much fun that we decided to go for round two! This party is so fun that we are already planning on attending next year, so it’s officially an annual thing! Who doesn’t love drinking and dancing into the night with your favorite person? I do! I do! Crazy thing: this year we were out until almost 3 am! It was the best.
