I can't believe I'm sharing this...

First, I completely stole this idea. I found, on another blog, a picture of what someone dressed up as for Halloween last year*. (If you've not yet read Loralee's Looneytunes, go read her - she's supa funny.)

I first just saved a copy of Loralee's original picture to show my hubby. I thought it was THAT funny.

We laughed, then he said, "You know, I already have ALL of the stuff to be the guy. And we DO have a Halloween party to go to."

I just plain said no.

Two days later (and a day before Halloween) he informed me that unless I came up with a better idea, this is what we were going to do.

We were Beth & Dog the Bounty Hunter.

We are so lame
That's his idea of a scowl. I think he looks like he's pooping.
The pics we had a (drunk) friend take were even worse than this one. What you can't see is Jay's real bulletproof vest, swat pants and boots and my fishnets and HUGE fake boobies. Jay made them for me out of swim floaties and duct tape. Oh yeah...I was awesome. They were blaze orange and when we were in the blacklight, they glowed and you could see them through the top of my shirt.
Huge thanks to Loralee for the inspiration and thanks to Jay for playing plastic surgeon (ha! get it? plastic?) and fashioning some huge ta-tas for his lovely wife.
*Also, my sincere apologies for the awkward use of my own language in this post. I worked late last night, then EARLY this morning and there's no reason I should still be awake. Oh yeah. Damn nablopomo.

I was just going to ask if you had huge fake boobies, but then I re-read and saw that you did. I bet they MADE the outfit!

Cute idea!

Well if you worked construction, those glow-in-the-dark orange boobies would come in super handy - plus I'd bet you'd get an extra long coffee break from the boys if they didn't know they were "fake"! :)

Great costumes - and I don't think it looks like Jeff is pooping. It just looks like you're squeezing his.....arm??
