Months ago Mike decided we were dressing up as Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein for Halloween.
Time went by and we never picked up make-up, supplies, clothing or anything relating to this idea.
Cue us, frantically searching couple’s costume ideas 2 weeks before Halloween, and the weekend before an early Halloween party. We didn’t want to pay for the original idea and instead opted to fabricate our own….if we found a better idea.
I threw out a few ideas that Mike vetoed and vice-versa. Our back up option included something political, and while our friends are like minded, I dare not stir the pot.
So I present to you, our D.I.Y. Social Media costumes!
Hopefully you can figure out I am dressed as Twitter and Mike is Facebook. I “made” both costumes, if that isn’t painfully obvious. Since I spent so much time on Mike’s poster board of plenty (ahem, a blend of the old and new FB complete with fill-in-your-own-wall!), my whiteboard meets feather boa Twitter get-up lacks a little…
Also, I tweeted everything I wrote on my whiteboard, for the most part. A new fun game became “Where’s my PEN?!” for much of the night. “Oh, in my pocket” or “Found it!” resounded loudly to reassure friends, frequently. PS-dot-com, those of you not in the cool-kids-club: I dig Twitter & Instagram.
So yeah, Happy Halloween from Mike and Vicki. I hope you get more treats than tricks (or whatever your pleasure may be!)
I love this costume.
