Super Hero Costume Shopping

Saturday night we went to a FANTASTIC Halloween Party at my brother and sister in law's house. Well, actually we went to the mall first and spent wayyy too much money on Halloween Costumes. 

We were still going to go with the whole "super heros" theme even though our friends decided to be zombies or vampires or something NON super heroish and ruining our whole fabulous four thing we were going to have going on. (That's actually for a party NEXT weekend but we are obviously only buying one costume). We went to the Spirit store and they had quite a few costumes for me to choose from.

There was the vintage looking Cat Girl. Oh my lord, this one was HILARIOUS!! Cropped it above the belt line to save you from seeing why I did NOT buy this one haha. So it zips up the back, and the head part is connected, which means if you aren't careful your HAIR is also zipped up. I think I only left a few strands in there. Also the gloves are attached so you wouldn't be able to use your iPhone the whole time you are wearing it. FAIL! 

 And then we have Robin. Or is it RobinGirl? Robinettte? Slutty Robin? Debated on this one a bit but my rib cage is a bit too large it appears. And whew, is that a SHORT skirt. Obviously I'm contemplating how I would be bending over while wearing this when I took the picture.

and then we have Batgirl. Bat Girl? Hmmm I'm pretty sure I said I wasn't going to wear this one. Scott told me to make sure I pointed that out. BUT really it's the best fitting. (We couldn't take the accessories in the dressing room to get the full effect). 

They had ONE Batman costume in Scott's size. Is that meant to be or what?

Here we are before we left for the party. I tied the belt higher later, which looked much better. Oh and notice the addition of leggings. Yeah wayy not enough fabric to cover the vital parts without those!

Ready to fight off crime!!

and my darling children

 I'll tell you about the party next!

You look great, Julie! The Batgirl costume was definitely the way to go. Looks perfect for you. :) My friends and I are doing a "Creepy Crawl" 5k this Saturday & dressing up as superheroes. We just bought girly superhero t-shirts at Spencer's and are making tutus this week. :)

Confession: I have never worn a costume as an adult. I think the last time I dressed up for Halloween was... 9th grade? And I wore my cheerleading costume from dance class. Lame-o.
