This year was no different. sarahlangan recommended Kelli and I go as Gomez and Morticia Addams. I thought that was a cute idea, but as you can see, the Gomez costume turned out to be pretty lame. It's just a cheap, fake pinstripe suit, not all that different from the one they sell as a gangster suit. It doesn't even come with a fake mustache (which I guess I wouldn't need) or a fake cigar. Plus, there were no Morticia costumes to be found. (There was a nice Lily Munster constume, but no Herman. I was beginning to sense a pattern.) Anyway, we scrapped the Addams Family idea and kept browsing.
Turns out it was a good thing we did, because we found the perfect costumes! We get to keep a theme, like being Gomez and Morticia, but with an added level of funny. And sexiness. Sexy fun!
I won't reveal what the costumes are, not yet. We'll be seeing some of you at a costume party this Saturday night and don't want to ruin the surprise. Afterward, though, if someone takes a picture, I'll see if Kelli doesn't mind me sharing it here.
