Halloween Through The Years

Hello everyone!
I can't believe Halloween is in a few days...
Where has the time gone?
My family really loves Halloween.
Every year we get together and have a party where we reveal our Halloween costumes.
We take it very seriously and make sure to keep our costumes a secret until Halloween.
Sometimes two costumes are involved...
This will be the eighth Halloween Erik and I have spent together.
I thought it would be fun to share our costumes throughout the years.

The Dread Pirate Roberts and Princess Buttercup
This is probably my favorite costume we have done.
It was so original at the time.
Mad props to Erik because he thought of it!

Batman and Robin
Erik is a huge batman fan so it was only fitting. 
I always laugh at Erik's "six pack."

I LOVE the Little Mermaid and had such high hopes for this costume.
Erik's mom made this dress specifically for me as it is my favorite of Ariel's
I tried to temporary dye my hair red for the day and it didn't work...
We ended up spraying my hair with red hair spray minutes before the party.
I wish it would have turned out differently but don't worry I still secretly wear this dress around the house.

Villain and Damsel in Distress
We thought it would be fun to dress up as an old-timey Villain and Damsel in Distress.
It was so easy to throw together.
Please notice that I am "tied" to the "train tracks." :)
Erik's mustache.

Dorothy and the Scarecrow
This was such a fun costume!
We got all of Erik's costume from the DI.
And what girl doesn't love wearing sparkly shoes? 

Han Solo and Princess Leia
This is my second favorite costume of ours.
I got the Leia costume for 40% off because it was missing the wig and just did my own hair.
Erik's costume is almost completely from the DI again.
His "space gun?" $3 from Target!

Marty McFly and Doc Brown
Erik and I decided to finally put this costume to use since it was the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future.
The pieces for my costume were so easy because plaid shirts, jean jackets and puffer vests are all back in style!
And once again Erik's costume is from the DI.

We are already for Monday.
Erik is really excited because he has wanted to do this costume but didn't think it was relevant.
That is no the case this year. :)
What are you being for Halloween?
