My Halloween Costume

So, I was informed last week that the students LOVE it when we dress up. I teach two different grades, 7th in the morning and 8th after lunch. I went to my 7th grade meeting, and we all agreed we would wear jerseys and some crazy ears or some kind of ears to match our jersey's mascot. I was like sah-weet! I'll just go buy some tiger ears and call it a day. 7 bucks later I was good to go:) However, I was NOT good to go. I'm not on the 7th grade hall, so our hall informed me that we are doing a Scooby Doo theme. Really? Scooby Doo. Sheesh! And, guess what? I get stuck with Daphne. So, I had to go out and try to find an orange wig to no avail of course. I ended up having to buy the whole costume. Granted wigs are around $15 and the costume only cost $30, but still I digress.........
I hadn't planned on going out, so I didn't buy a cool costume this year. So, Daphne it is.
Don't worry. I'll take a pic for the ol' blog here. And btw, if you are contemplating ordering this costume, DO NOT! It's super cheap for real. It's one size fits all up to like a 12 or 14. Trust me it does not fit someone up to that size unless you want to look like a stuffed sausage. I hate it when companies size like that. Just be honest! I'd say it fits up to an 8 max. Also, the wig does not look like this. It's going to take a lot of combing to halfway achieve that do above. Also, the little scarf isn't anything more than a cut piece of mesh fabric. This costume is NOT worth it AT ALL. Don't buy it!!! The dress is SO cheaply made, I'm probably going to just wear jeans and a purple top with the wig and green scarf. Just thought I'd let you readers know in case you wanted to go as Daphne.

What are you going as for Halloween???

Halloween is so fun, but I agree with the quality of these costumes out there on the shelves. I'm going as Paula Deen and the wig I bought last night was horrible. I'm now on a new wig search. I think I'll just sit home and eat candy all night instead. Have a great Halloween at your school!
