Playing Dress Up


One of the first things I'm going to spend my hard earned money on is my Halloween costume. I haven't dressed up in years. This year I'm going all out when I take my kids trick or treating. It'll be a great way to find out which of my neighbors are freaks. I'm going to be Sookie Stackhouse for Halloween. I will be joined by two other Merlotte's waitresses, Jessica and Tara. It's going to be a night to remember.

1. I'm dying my hair blonde.
2. I'm buying the following authentic costume.
3. I'm going to put my long blonde hair in a ponytail.
4. I'm working on the Sookie accent to give it the full effect.





What are your plans for Halloween?

nice idea! you'll be the perfect sookie!

just put a N behind the S and drop the E and that is my halloween costume.

That is awesome! You've GOT to have a gap in between your teeth to be truly authentic. Please say you're working on that. ☺

Ashley said...

Love it! This will be so fun!

Christina said...

Great idea! I can't wait to see it!

Salt said...

OMG I can't wait to see your hair. It's going to be awesome!!!

I'm dressing up as Hit Girl from Kick Ass. I just made my giant blade thing last night out of pvc and duct tape. Now all I have left is my utility belt!

Trixie and Tess said...

I LOVE this!! I wanna be a waitress. If I lived closer, I would so join in! :)

I think I'll be going as Princess Leia. Our whole family is doing a Star Wars theme.

You'll look awesome - can't wait to see it!

I love dressing up for Halloween! Haven't decided what I want to be yet though.

Olivia Carter said...

Oh my heck! I love this idea! Love, love, love it! Can't wait to see how it looks!

Sarah said...

I saw this costume the other day and really wanted to buy it. Alas, we are on a budget so it won't happen this year.

Seriously, I need to figure out how I'm going to do my hair.

Nikosmommy said...

Love this! I think you'll look exactly like her!
I'm tossing around a few ideas for Halloween...my bff's and I always dress up and go out. (how old are we?!)
There's a post coming up dedicated to my love of Halloween!

You're dying your hair?! Can't wait to see how it looks!

I will only be living through my child and watching him run through the neighborhood like Buzz Lightyear. Wait, maybe I'll assign my husband that task and I will hand out (and eat) candy to the kids that come to the door with crap TIVO on in the background.

Karen Peterson said...

I don't know what I'm going to be yet, but this is the first in many years that I've actually had any interest in dressing up. Weird.

I like your costume! Sounds like fun!

MiMi said...

That's awesome! I can't wait to see pictures!

A Real Housewife said...

Sharlene T. said...

I'm going incognito as the wind and plan on taking all kinds of picture of you doing your thing... might even leave the 'record' on to see if you maintain the accent!.... have a great time... come visit when you can...

Allena said...

Coolest costume ever.

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

Oooo that is such a great idea I haven't even come up with a plan yet ugh

Krista said...

You are NOT dying your hair! Brave, brave girl, can't wait for the pics!

The Random Blogette said...

I so can't wait to see you with blond hair! You will look awesome! The hubs and I are going as Katy Perry and Snoop Dog from the California Gurls video. He has this obsession for dressing up as black men. Last year he was Kanye. I have my blue wig, but now I just have to figure out what else to wear!

Awwww, I love this idea! I actually went out with two girls last year and they were dressed as Merlotte's waitresses (though I couldn't tell you which ones...) I did read the books but have yet to watch True Blood. I'm dying to though (very punny, I know). That's a very cute costume!

I'm going to be Pebbles Flintstone I think. I certainly have enough hair of it--just need to get a giant bone to wrap it up in!

Date Girl said...

Best.Costume.EVER! Is the Hero dressing up as a vamp? Please say yes!

I have no costume plans this year, mostly because I have no halloween plans. I may just dress up as a cat or something plain and pass out candy. Snoresville...
