My first ever blogging experience was for the website, www.coolest-handmade-costumes.com. My “cool” costume was a couple costume idea that I had executed for Kevin and I during my sophomore year of college, his junior year of college.
I loved this costume because it was so easy to make! We dressed up as Popeye and Olive Oyl and I just remember having a blast getting into character and taking pictures with one another and our friends.
For my junior year and super senior (my ninth semester bc I graduated a semester late) year of college, I also DIY-ed mine and Kevin’s costumes! My junior year we were Wenda and Waldo, and in October 2015, we were Wonder Woman and Clark Kent. Pictures also found below:
I really like Halloween because you’re able to dress up as a character or a jubilee of characters (if you’re doing a group costume). I know, I know. A lot of Christians don’t like Halloween because of the story behind it and what it represents, which I get and I respect. But underneath it all, besides the negatives, I think Halloween can be celebrated (to a certain extent and these are just my personal views) if you turn to the positives of the holiday. In high school actually, my favorite group costumes were with my five close girlfriends. In total, there were six of us. We called ourselves AS6 (short for Asian Sisters 6) and we always handmade our costumes as well. Our junior year of high school, we dressed up as soda cans which was awesome. Then during our senior year, we dressed as the cast from the Pixar movie, UP. That was one of my favorites as well. Pictures can be found right below:
And just for ish and giggles, here’s me and my siblings with my stylish looking mother back when I was in pre-school and they were in elementary school:
Anyway, the link to my blog post for the Popeye and Olive Oyl couple costumes on www.coolest-handmade-costumes.com can be found here. Hope you enjoy! And please let me know if you ever get to use this for next Halloween!
See ya later, alligators.
Blessings on blessings,
