Happy Halloween, ghouls and goblins! This year, Lance and I headed back in time to the days of Bedrock. Rack of brontosaurus ribs not included.

Lance and I have spent much of this week working on our costumes while watching festive things like The Simpson’s Tree House of Horror and The Addams Family. Measuring, sewing, crafting, Lance — clearly not as used to being fitted for something as I am — worrying I’d poke him with a pin… They say the winter holidays are tough on couples, but a DIY Halloween is a great test of a relationship. Several hours and about $30 later, we’re ready for an evening of drink-or-treating. (I’m not a huge fan of tricks, but everyone loves cocktails and candy.)

I’m pretty proud of these costumes. The outfits are fleece and felt, and the necklace is made of practice golf balls and medical tape.

Now Lance just needs to work on his yabba-dabba’ing.

What are you dressing up as this Halloween? Need a last-minute idea? Check out my DIY cat burglar costume here; it was recently featured on LuckyMag.com!
