I'm planning on KEEPING that tradition throughout the Park household
and forever really.
Just to make sure we are on the same page...
(this is as far back as I remember. Just kidding, this is just as far back as I've had a Facebook.
...so yeah. This is as far back as I remember.)
Yeahyeah, pretty fancy. I am 16 in this photo and totally hot, right? Yeah. That was a rough year. (and not because I'd just broken up with Nick like... 2 weeks prior. That was nothin') Anyway, my mom sewed my costume I'd say she did... swimmingly!!
I forgot to mention my costumes get progressively better as the years go by.
Hey! Isn't that Connor Martin under that ridiculous fake beard??? You know it is. I can actually hear the sounds of the waves of my Connor Martin past just rushing past you right now as you view this. You're remembering matching shirts with pockets sewn to them (YES. I DID THAT BEFORE IT WAS COOL) and an Iron Man obsession (metal heart? not true. Sorry to break it to ya.) And just to be sure I give credit where credit is due... I literally sewed our costumes with my bear hands (haha get it? bear? cave? caveman?) at like 2AM with my mom's sewing machine. I even successfully made mine look somewhat hot! and hemmed his a little too high... sincerest apologies..)
I got a few grammy awards for this performance...
WHAT?! That isn't you... is it??? Yes. That's really me. I'll take a step even more frightening and mention that those clothes actually came from my own closet. So either I dress like a homeless hipster thug... or JB needs to stop shopping at the DI. Baby, oh.
This was just last year! So it requires a few more pictures. And so I can prove that my family is the legittist thing on the planet. My adorable husband stars in this one. By the way I got married last year!
Taylor was an Angry Bird! His mom did the face paint. Like a boss.
My parents were mad scientists. Apropos, really.
Yeah, my dad did all the special effect makeup, and my mom crocheted her own brain.
My sister's mummy costume was so legit. They even tea-stained the gauze.
And here's everyone!
Now I bet you're all just on the edge of your seat waiting to hear what I've planned for this year. It's pretty difficult to keep one-upping myself.. but needless to say, it can and will be done.
However, I'm the type-a girl who likes to roam around.
er.. surprise. I like to surprise. So until Halloween, I'll be posting little snippets of hints and if you can guess correctly in my comments what I'm going to be this year... I'll give you a prize!! I haven't decided what that is yet.. but Taylor says I have too much stuff in this apartment already, so I'm sure I can come up with something. A kumihimo bracelet? Or maybe that cupcake display from the "gifts we don't want but can still wrap and regift when our friends get married" closet.
Here's this week's snippet.
PS: if your name is McKenzie, and you're bleaching my hair next month.. you can't guess.
