So this year, me and my bestie decided to be the twins from the shining! Even though she is a foot taller than me Cheesy

We had this planned for about a month, but did not start on the costumes till 3 days before halloween! Natalie was a first time sewer too... and did everything herself! we're so proud!

We made the dresses, not worrying about details tooo much, since we were going to soak ourselves in blood! And i also made the hairbows. That was pretty much it to our costume! Although I am in LOVE with knee high socks now!! Grin


this was before we got bloody. we almost decided against the blood... but i'm SO glad we did it! ((im obviously the short one... AND i had heels!! Wink ))


the actual twins for reference!


and then we got super bloody. we just threw it at each other... it was SO fun!


i was sooo happy, i kept smiling! dead girls don't smile!!!



and the twins "after" reference! eeeep!



I had never been something bloody or dead for halloween, and let me tell you, it was a BLAST! I think we pulled it off well, despite the height/hair difference! let me know what YOU think!!

Terrifying!  What a great set of costumes!  Curious: did people get the reference or did you have to explain?  I would have gotten it, but it's one of my favorite movies (and books).

a couple people did! die hard horror fans, i suppose. But most people, as soon as we said "come play with us" or "The Shining", they would light up and go "OOOHHH, i get it now!" Wink

we were gonna have another friend be danny... but it just didn't happen in time  Undecided
