Halloween with Lady Gaga and Kimbo Slice

Gaga does NOT want..."Kiss from Kimbo"!

Gaga posing with ‘The National Debt’

Halloween was a budget-minded one this year! I was able to create a Lady Gaga outfit from my closet,  jewelry drawer and Target. Teddy created a crazy Lady Gaga hat out of a colander from the Target Dollar Spot and added some holiday decor to it for extra glitz. My brown boots in the garage sale pile were salvaged and spray painted silver and topped with feather boas from the basement. (I mean, who DOESN’T have a pile of boas in the basement?) A broken microphone from our karaoke machine was a perfect addition to the costume.

Teddy as...Kimbo Slice

The big coat I wore is famously known as ‘The Red’. The Red has been worn by many celebrities who happen to be in its path. Drew Carey, Sammy Sosa and Alan Thicke to mention a few. A huge thanks to my friends Big Joe and Pammy who gave me this hand-me-down a few years ago!

p-p-p-p-poker face!

Teddy went as mixed martial arts fighter Kimbo Slice. I spent quite a bit of time that night telling people who Teddy was dressed as. The people who were familiar with Kimbo Slice fell apart laughing every time.

What was your Halloween costume this year? I am always looking for creative, inexpensive ideas. Some of my favorites this year I saw include the ‘Meyhem’ guy from the Allstate commercials. He was dressed in a suit with scrapes on his face, carrying a 1-pound pink hand weight. Hilarious! And the Orbit Gum girl. Easy to do with some white boots and a flight attendant-like suit…and some gum! And I heard about a winner in a costume contest who went as Kenny Powers from the HBO show ‘Eastbound and Down’. One mullet, a bad attitude and keys to a cheesy jet ski with pink accent paint…easy!
