Date 104 - Too Cute To Spook

Date: October 19, 2013 and October 25, 2013
Type: Out On The Town
Cost: $$
Planned By: Dani

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love candy and I also really like to try to come up with a great costume. I like couples costumes, and I think Adam enjoys them, too.

Check out a couple of our best past costumes. (Left: Jack and Jill 2010, Right: Nerds 2012)
This year we had ​costumes from Finding Nemo! I was Dory, Adam was Marlin and Obi was Nemo... Except when we were in public Adam was Nemo because it was easier for people to understand.
​I spent a long time making and buying parts for this costume. I sewed the black siding to my shirt and all the stripes on Adam's shirt. We also made sure to wear orange and blue, and I painted the fins. The awesome fish eyes are soccer ball sunglasses painted white. ​I think our costumes were adorable and everyone we came across thought they were very creative.
We ended up going to two different parties. First, we went to Hall OU at the Barley house with Allyson and we met up with Lauren, Caitlin, Halle, Rachel and Courtney. We got second place in the couple costume contest. We also got second place last year. We were pretty bitter, but on the free trolley ride home a random guy on the sidewalk pointed at Adam in the trolley and yelled, "I FOUND NEMO!" And that really made our night. 
The next weekend we went to the costume party at Pacers, downstairs. We lost the costume contest, too. We still had a great time though!
All in all, I think our costumes were awesome!
