Oh my goodness, how the hell is it November already?! It still feels like SDCC just happened last month, but alas. That was four months ago! The way the end of the year quickly creeps upon us never ceases to amaze and terrify me. Why terrify? Well… because it makes me think about what I have and [mostly] haven’t done all year, and makes me cringe because despite the things I did accomplish, I can’t help but focus on the negative. Y’know how that goes. 😛
I’ve been pretty quiet on here lately, and that’s because I’ve been crazy busy with an internship I just started a month ago in San Francisco! I’ll talk more about it at some other point because I just wanted to quickly share mine and Rory’s Halloween costumes. Him and I dressed up as BB-8 and Poe DAME-eron from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. HA! See what I did there? Poe Dameron. DAME-eron? No? Okay fine, whatever. I thought it was clever.
We were originally going to be Babe and Farmer Hoggett from Babe, but then I saw this BB-8 costume at Petsmart back in August and immediately decided we’d be BB-8 and Poe instead. I already had the Poe/Finn jacket by Her Universe from Hot Topic so that just saved me a trip from having to find a tweed jacket and whatever else I’d need to dress up as Farmer Hoggett. Plus dressing up like an old farmer versus dressing up like the best freaking pilot in the galaxy — pilot wins hands down! I thought about wearing pants (or trousers incase anyone from Europe is reading this) to be more Poe-like, but I went with a skirt because I’m all about that no-pants life. Except pants would’ve been nice to have on the hayride we went on at Dell’osso Farms. :: cringe ::
Rory and I are definitely going to be rocking these outfits again for our holiday greeting cards this year! Did you dress your pet or yourself up for Halloween? Tell me all about your costumes in the comments section. 🙂
