couples halloween costumes

a few weeks ago i had the great opportunity to style a photoshoot for Say Yes to Hoboken, (only one of my longtime favorite blogs, no pressure.)

the premise of the task at hand was to pick 4 couples costumes that you could easily pull from your own closet... aka my kind of costumes! this is what i end doing pretty much every year and i feel great about it! i'm so not the girl to spend a lot of money on things i can't use again and again.
there i go with the CPW talk again. while i love holidays, they're just that - days - so handmade or from my clothing or craft closet is the way for me!

you can read the full posts (complete with where-to-buy details and quick instructions on making the chimney sweep & money bags) at Say Yes to Hoboken.

and our amazing photographer, Ashley Thalman, who i quickly made "my people" has the most beautiful  behind the scenes shots, she was so nice to let me borrow a few for this post.

BANDITS!

BIKER GANG!

QUINN! owner of QP Collections

BERT & MARY POPPINS!
KATRINA! lead singer of the punk band Baby Ghosts. 
they're playing this monday and Russ and i are going for our traditional wedding anniversary concert.
pumped! it has been a long time since my last punk show, but no time like the present, right?








big thank you to Liz of Say Yes to Hoboken for the crazy fun gig, the out of control awesome models, and the wizard genius photographer and letting me hire my baby sister Bethany who did the stellar hair and make up for this. i love having her at shoots, she's so darn good.

also thank you to Susan of Freshly Picked for making those amazing leather bandit masks!

Happy Closet Halloween!

Fabulous job on the styling. Halloween is my second favorite holiday and I always try and dress up as many times as possible..I'll make every get together/dinner/event/concert I go to during the month of October a costume party. But like you, they're all from my closet.

i saw the pictures of bandit/mad men post on 'say yes to hoboken' but didn't get the chance to read it, and instantly thought of you- too funny to know you actually styled it! love those ideas!

any ideas for a 8month prego lady and her hubby? (i thought of juno and bleeker but didn't think it too appropriate to dress up as a pregnant teenager for a church function....) ???
