A Teacher's Halloween Costume

If you're anything like me, finding a Halloween costume appropriate for school is excruciating.  Is it just me or are most of the costumes for women too trashy, skimpy and sexy to even consider wearing, even under a cardigan or over a bodysuit? Not to mention all the sexual innuendos and gross words on what seem to be ok-for-school costumes. Walking the aisles of the Halloween store is just painful.
I like making my own costumes. I start thinking about the perfect costumes weeks before Halloween and I don't share my idea with anyone.  I like to surprise people. And I like costumes that make people laugh. Last year, this was my costume. Can you tell I'm a Crazy Cat Lady? All I needed was a robe (check), rollers (check) and stuffed animal toys (check).  I also had cat treats and toys in my pockets and a really ugly cat tshirt with sequins sewn on it.  It was hilarious.



And this is me this year.  I got the reaction I was hoping for...TONS of laughter! My hubby was amazing and made the frame for me from PVC pipe.  You can't see it in the picture, but there's a shower head attached as well and I rolled up my pants and wore flip flops.  I tried to find a dorky soap on a rope, but had to settle for a pink puff instead. By the afternoon, kids were begging to try on my shower. :)



What did you dress up as?  What are some of your favourite teacher costumes?
