Happy Saturday world!  I hope everyone’s weekend is going better than mine so far! But I won’t bore you with those silly details.  Instead let’s talk Halloween.

So there’s exactly two weeks until costumes must be made and candy must be bought.  I know it struck me as soon as my mother asked me to make the goody bags to hand out to kids (I like to do something extra and instead of giving kids a handful of random candies I like to package and seal goody bags to ensure that each child gets and equal amount. . I’m crazy I know.  But the kids really enjoy it when they see you give them a bag full of treats!) So searching for candy my mind raced to what I could possibly be.

On a previous outing with my friends we stopped by numerous costume shops and one costume that really caught my eye was the peacock:

How cute is that?!  It’s something about the feathers I just love it so much! (Note my first ever ClosetCat post was on feathers)  And if you click to view the costume you can see that the back feathers also can be pushed down into a longer skirt as well which looks ridiculously cute as well.  Ugh, cute overload sorry.  Too bad I had to put the costume down when I saw the price tag of $90 in the store.  Even though online the costume is only $70 I still can’t bring myself to pay that much for something I will wear for only a few hours one day a year.  😦

I did however find an alternate peacock costume at Target for only $40

This one is cute too, but the details that I fell in love with in the first peacock are missing here (i.e. the feather hat, the ability for the tail feathers to be up or down, etc.)  Also, this one is not available in the store so I would have to order it online.  Now I don’t mind ordering online, but the fact that it’s one size and the model looks super skinny makes me weary of the item.

Maybe I should stick to my fall back costume of Morton Salt Girl that I’ve always talked about but never got around to doing. . .

Decisions decisions!  What are you thinking of being this Halloween?
