Aloha Friday: Dress Up?

Aloha Friday with An Island Life

If you wanna play stop on over and visit An Island Life and link up! 
I am answering her question here.
Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, what are you going as?

I have not dressed up for Halloween since the year my hubs and I started dating, back in 2003 (wow, I just realized I haven't dressed up for Halloween in 7 years!!!).  However, I think this year I might go as Alice Cullen.  (I am a huge Twilight fan)  Alice Cullen is my favorite (I also love her mate Jasper Hale but I don't think I can get hubs to dress up like Jasper).  I just love her and since I died my hair very dark brown (is that even a color) and it is a little on the short side I think I might be able to pull off the hair and then I have a good excuse to go shopping for an "Alice Cullen" outfit!  I am certain that while I am out with the kids as they go trick-or-treating no one will really think that I have dressed up, but I will know that I have!

Happy Friday! 
My question for you;
Do you re-use your child's Halloween costumes for your younger kids? 


  1. Cute idea!

    I dressed up a few years ago as Alice in Wonderland. My middle son was about 6 months old then and I dressed him as a white rabbit. :)

  2. i've never dressed up at halloween but i've dressed up as Mrs Santa at Christmas.
    i always dress up my kids at halloween but don't know yet what they are going to be this year.

  3. No, the kids usually play around in them throughout the year so we get our money's worth.

  4. Not really, but they do use them over and over again. My youngest especially is a costume freak and dresses up constantly!

  5. No I don't dress up for Halloween but my grandchildren do and its always fun! :)

  6. I will when I have another...

  7. We don't usually dress up, although our friends have a halloween party in costume each year, so sometimes we would go. It sounds like fun! I won't be reusing since my son's costumes have been pretty boy-specific, and my youngest is a girl :)

  8. When my oldest was little the rule was you can't wear your costume till Halloween but after it is fair game. Every year she was a type of princess so they turned into dress up dresses. This meant she wore them so much that I couldn't reuse them again.
