To begin, I would like to reintroduce last year’s Halloween choreographed dance to reel you in to this post.
This year, we wanted our costumes to be classics and so the natural inclination was to be sheet ghosts. In my quest to find cheap white sheets, I came upon a store called C.W. Price. From what I can tell, T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s send C.W. Price all the merchandise they can’t sell. It’s pretty much a treasure trove of pure garbage. In this trove, I found a white king sized set of sheets. Do you know what 200 thread count feels like on your face? I do. It’s akin to a mesh onion sack full of cat claws.
Now, instead of splurging and purchasing 2 flat sheets, I realized that in buying a set, someone was going to get the short end of the stick in this deal; someone was going to have to be the fitted sheet. Luckily, for some reason I’ll never understand, Ellen wanted to be the fitted sheet.
Before we started hacking up the sheets, we searched the internet to see if it really was just as simple as cutting out a couple circles. It is. However, we did get suckered into this guy’s series of astonishingly serious videos about constructing the ideal sheet ghost. We particularly like his segment on breathing:
Major accomplishments of the night:
1.) At the first party we went to, I successfully distracted a circle of people playing Kings into showing me card magic tricks instead.
2.) We made a list of all the sexy costumes we saw. Creativity points awarded to the ones at the bottom of the list.
cowgirl (also wearing Coach purse)
Daria (actually saw 2 of these. La la la, la la.)
3.) No visible Dorito dust on costume after chip slam.
