I Hate Dressing Up


I think it all started the year my parents dressed me up as Supergirl.  I didn't even know who that was.  Superman would have been cool, but instead I got a stupid red skirt.

After that, I never liked dressing up for Halloween.  I sacrificed my comfort to get candy throughout my elementary years, but I only ever wore the bare minimum.  In high school, I skipped any costume parties and in college, I took the lazy way out.  One year, I went as the color green and wore anything I had that was green.  I just wanted a red solo cup filled with beer and you had to have a costume.

Now that I'm a real adult, I have finally figured out a game plan for costumes that makes me happy and allows me to attend my friends' halloween festivities.  I find the most ridiculous character onesie I can and wear it all night.  Extra points if I get my friends to play along with that theme.


This year I am off the hook since I'm not in Minneapolis and I can spend my Halloween in my kermit onesie with my own bag of candy.  Man, that makes me sound like such a party pooper - this is just one holiday that I don't really get into.  Sorry.

  1. I never dress up. I just don't get creative enough. But that Kermit onesie? Priceless.

  3. A-freaking-men. I'm right there with you in doing the bare minimum. My BFF's birthday is on Halloween so she's just a tad bit obsessed with the whole costume thing. I would be lying if I said I wasn't happy we have a wedding to attend the night of her annual halloween party. Darn!

    But, let it be know - you made a darn adorable supergirl ;)

  4. Halloween is absoloutely my favorite, although I can understand not liking it...if you don't like to dress up it is a lot of work. The onesie idea is so fun and cute though (:

  5. I totally don't get it either. I like the fall themed decorations, but Halloween I could take or leave. Not my thing.

  7. I'm the same way - Halloween isn't really my thing. I only get dragged into dressing up and celebrating by my friends and I often get criticized for re-using my costumes. But hey,if I didn't want to dress up in the first place, I'm definitely not going to spend the time and $ on a new costume!

  8. I think we might be exact opposites, at least where costumes are concerned! I LOVE any excuse to put on a costume.. We even have a themed Christmas party!

  10. I hate dressing up too. I am known to bust out some cat ears and wear jeans and a black shirt. So creative, I am. But really, I'll do anything if I can wear normal clothes.

  12. I loved it when I was young, then didn't really like it in high school, ut I wanted the candy. In college, it was an excuse to dress like a hoe-bag. A bunch of us freshman year 1999 went as catholic school girls ala Britney. Lame. Now that we live in development, we hand out candy. No dressing up and I'm perfectly fine with that.

  15. I won't lie, I love dressing up! :) But the idea of a fun onesie -especially a Kermit one- is pretty awesome as well! I definitely don't do the scandalous, freeze-your-butt-off costumes, but I like thinking of something funny/creative!

    Also- I have an identical picture of myself in that exact supergirl outfit.
