Trick or Treat!

Deciding what to be for Halloween is always so difficult for me. There are just soooo many great costumes that I always find it hard to narrow it down. And this year I want to look especially good because we are new to the neighborhood and will be meeting some of our neighbors for the first time when we take Little Guy trick-or-treating.

So, can anyone help me out deciding on a costume? So far, I have it narrowed down to...

the Sexy Stud Finder Construction Worker Costume (batteries not included)

the Servin' it Hot Waitress Costume (because I think the "Wild Cherry Diner" name badge is just so adorable)

The tried and true Nun Costume (in honor of 12 years of Catholic School education) OR

The Little Miss Muffet Costume (because of how much I just loooved that nursery rhyme).

Anyone got a favorite? Remember, I want to make a good impression on the neighbors.

You have to go with the construction worker. I mean, the cone bra? Now, that's classic! I am glad we don't live in the same town or we would look kinda silly showing up in the same thing!

My vote goes to the cone bra, um stud finder, costume, too;>

Street walker. Your neighbors will be impressed and probably construct a Neighborhood Watch in your honor.

Nice. All are very nice. It reminds me of when my daughter slathered herself with my make-up last week. I told her how beautiful she looked and my husband told her she looked like a whore who got beat up by her pimp. Something every 2-year-old needs to know...

My vote is for the nun. Everyone loves a nun.

I think the nun costume is quite fetching. Bring a ruler and wear a look of annoying superiority to complete the outfit!

I went as a dominatrix one year. I yielded an actual whip (that was fun). Men loves whips.

I'm going to have to go with Little Miss Muffet ... who doesn't like a woman in pink? And with the stockings? That totally puts it over the edge :)

I love the Cherry Diner look..may steal this one from you.

Stud finder all the way!

All good choices but here is another one!

Get yourself a sexy, little dress and carry a silver briefcase with a number on it. This would make you one of the Deal or No Deal women!

Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Sounds like the construction "worker" costume is the favorite so far. I better get ready to get my hands dirty (he he - sorry, bad joke)

Amber: did your husband really say that? Oh my gosh! Too funny.

Metro Mama: if you have pictures, I demand that you share!

Something Blue: Ha! Deal or No Deal! I love it! I used to watch that show all the time (just for the sexy ladies of course...)

Any of them would certainly make an impression. Hopefully, you do not live in a cold climate. :-)

Ohhh...the construction worker. What better way to make a first impression than showing some cone boobs? Oh boy....

each one screams, "Class."

I'd go as the construction gal, but I have neither the boobs to hold up the cones...nor the abs to justify the bare midriff. I do have hiking boots, however.

I gotta go with the traffic cone bra stud finder otfit, LOL! Sure to impress the neighbors. And any teen boy who's too old to trick or treat.

Blogger Tasha said...

I agree with Ali, everyone one of them screams classy and would make a GREAT 1st can't go wrong. Here's another idea, you could go as Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman..she was classy towards the end of the movie. (hehe)

The stud finder costume is my favorite. That bra is fantasic. Um, where do the batteries go?

However if you want to make your neighbors proud, go for the full body peircings and tattoos. Neighbors are always wild about a goth.

I think the pylon-cone bra outfit is definately the way to go. Looks like a responsible parent to me for sure. Concerned about safety. Demonstrating to your son that women can be construction workers too - how very PC.

The construction gal, fer sure!

Oooh that Nun costume is BAD!!! I love it.

I vote for muffet. I think it's more mommy-ish. You know with the nursery rhyme and all.

The Stud Finder one. Any female neighbors get upset, just offer to find them a stud. That's gotta work, and it's better than treats!

2:11 PM  
Blogger Nikkie said...

That construction worker costume scares me a little. I'd go with that one!!

2:21 PM  
Blogger scribbit said...

The cones! The cones! I love it--trick or treat has a very different meaning with that one.

Blogger Michele said...

HA! Def. the construction worker! And then you have to post pics of yourself afterwards!

I'd go Little Miss Muffet, it's almost genuinely sexy is a sleazy little tart sort of way. The construction worker thing is just, well, idiotic.

WOW! Bob the Builder is going to LOOOOVE Construction Girl! Except that I bet Wendy will get REALLY jealous!

I suppose a chicken or a pumpkin isn't in the running, huh?

Or could be a sexy pumpkin!

The Construction Worker takes the cake.

I'd love to wear something like that but I just don't have the body.

Okay and seriously it's cold in Wisconsin, I'd freeze! :)

Blogger Tracie said...

I hope it isn't cold where you live!!

Definately pick the first one-I'm sure that it will make just the impression that you want to all of your new neighbors.

Blogger Catherine said...

I think I'd go with the hot waitress costume for the nostalgia. But I'm such a cheapo I'd probably put on my old school uniform and call it good. :)

The construction girl cracks me up!

Blogger Waya said...

The construction worker reminds me of "Lisa" on Tool Time. But I'd vote for the Little Miss Muffet. I'd say you'll be a hit with the neighborhood men, but not so sure about the women though.

Blogger Lotta said...

Too funny. I think if I wore any of those my husband would just laugh!

9:11 PM  
Blogger Felicia said...

NO NO!!! Don't listen to all those other comments. The first costume has to be MINE...I'm the one w/ a home improvement blog!

Now you can't go wrong dressed as a nun...even a trampy one.

My favorite costume? The year I went as a pregnant Girl Scout!

9:17 PM  
Blogger Lisa said...

Ohhh. I think you'd definitely make a great impression with the neighborhood men!

9:21 PM  
Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

feliciak: Pregnant Girl Scout - love it! And yes, you totally have to go as the Studfinder since you are the home improvement wiz. I'll surrender that costume to you. My boobs would never have fit into the hazard cones anyway!

10:15 PM  
Blogger Kristen said...

LOL. I actually was thinking about wearing the studfinder costume to a sexy halloween party- but I'm sure it will def. impress the new neighbors. LOL. Dont' be surpised if none of the kids are allowed over LOL and if the moms start whispering behind your back LOL.

Definitely the construction worker costume is the best.

Too funny!

You'll definitely impress the male neighbours! :)

I went as a dark angel one year and one guy kept referring to me as the "Dirty Angel".

Construction worker. Before Madonna rips it off and it becomes immediately pass-AY.

Just wear a wig and introduce yourself as a new neighbor.

HAHAHA I like the first one the best!!!! Those CONES!

12:02 PM  
Blogger Mamma said...


The options they are aplenty.

I think you should go with #1 as long as the cones flash and turn.

Went as Madonna once to the Drag Queen races over Halloween one year. I could hear people whispering under their breath in a disgusted tone saying "she's not even a man!"

I mind as well have been for the metallic cone bra I was wearing.

Blogger Catch said...

Oh I think you will definitely be a hit with the neighbors in those costumes!!! LoL...Im sure the husbands will love you, not sure about the wives though! I do like that cone bra! :-))

Blogger theotherbear said...

Definately the first one. In fact, if you have any spare male friends, ask them if they'll also come along - one dressed as an indian, one in black leather, one in... oh, you get the idea!

I'd go for the Nun costume, 'cause a pregnant Nun is always a funny sight and will make a great impression! LOL!!!

Apologies for the above comment, lack of sleep had me thinking you were preggers -- maybe you are and just don't know it yet. Anyway, I am soooo sorry that my typing was working faster than my brain! Eeeek. :)

The construction worker, definitely!!!

You are such a classy lady. I say the tool girl.

Dare you. No, I triple dare you....

Well, the nun is okay, but really, don't you think you should do the Catholic girl thing instead. you will look AWESOME in a little plain mini uniform.

3:09 PM  
Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

There were some pretty sexy Catholic school girl uniforms on the "Halloween costume" site where I found these so that WOULD be another option.

Or I could just dig up my old uniform and wear that. Unfortunately, I don't think it would be too sexy. Though it WOULD be scary. :)
