Some friends of mine and I decided to go to vegas for my 21st bday and we were going to do a "food and drink" theme...I love having my bday on Halloween but I hate that every girl usually turns it into an excuse to dress risque. BUT I also wanted to look cute (and maybe just a tad sexy) for vegas... cuz I usually dress up as things like Wilma or Mario... and those things just aren't very vegas-y!
so I was thinking of costume ideas for my guy and I ...cookies and milk, bacon and eggs, ...and then it hit me! Chips and Salsa!!

So he went as a California Highway Patrol (CHP or "CHiP" like in the show CHiPs http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075488/ ) and I went as a Salsa dancer.

I made my costume from a thrift store dress that was a few sizes too big. it was red floor length, no slit, with high neckline and only $3!! I cut some off of the bottom, added the slit and used the extra fabric to make the top ruffle. then I bought some black satin and made the other ruffles. The mr.'s costume is all thrifted as well. His cb radio is actually a car cell phone charger attached to a toy walky talky and he ironed on the patches and the badge.

Sorry no in progress shots, but here are the pics of us the night of halloween (yay 21!)

the only full body shot:

this one might show the bottom of the dress a little better:

and just for fun... me and the mr. :

and for some reason my computer hates me and won't load a very awesome "first time being carded" picture but let me assure you that it is very cheesy and will be posted asap...

I got a lot of compliments, a lot of people took pictures of my group and we had a blast!

Hahaha.. great pun. I was thinking before clicking, "How are they going to be an amorphous tomato based sauce?"
