Nate was a Ghostbuster...
Some previous Halloween costumes...
2011, I was Sally from the Nightmare before Christmas:
2010, I was a reverse mermaid. Fish on top, lady on the bottom. Not as sexy, but far more practical:
2009, I was Maude Lebowski from The Big Lebowski, in the hallucination scene:
2008, I was Frida Kahlo:
2007, I was the bee girl from Blind Melon's No Rain video:
I also "resurrected" the costume for the 2010 Zombie Pub Crawl, so I was a "Zom-Bee" girl then too:
2006, I was a pregnant high school cheerleader:
Before that, all of my photos are "real" photos not digital so I'll have to scan them next time I'm at my mom and dad's house. There's a few crazy ones!
