Yep…that’s how this post started out.  But people do a post on that EVERY year.

Overweight superheros?  Ho-Hum

Overweight villains?  Ho-Humbug

I’ve seen better costumes on Walmartians (Tie-dye on steriods hemherroids?)

They really crack me up.

I was Princess Leia in Paisley one year.  Don’t believe me?  Even my ex-husband didn’t know who it was when I went to the airport to pick him up. You’d think he’d recognize the neck.

Yawn.

Maybe I’ll do a post about actresses with balls…

Or those who have gone to the dogs

And how about the ones that want to whip up something after the show?

You want more action and less chiffon?

What about having a Costume Fail party this year and inviting a ball-of-queena to lighten things up?  No?

Maybe your office can hold a scar-your-child-for-life event? The resulting sirens would add a bit of color to the party, don’t you think?

Want even more excitement?  Interested in adding a few tacky First-Responder costumes to your party?  Lend a friend a costume that he doesn’t know is really a piñata!

No Costume Fail party is complete if you don’t invite a couple of boobs to join in on the fun!

Not interested in possible jail time?  

Then hold a Worst Pet Costume party and scar your cat for life instead!

Dogs, too, are not immune to humiliation.

 I’m not sure which is worse, or perhaps this spider dog costume is simply a different kind of penetrating humiliation.

To be honest, my mind is so focused on NaNoWriMo that I’m hard pressed to think about anything else but books.

 It’s so bad that I’m dreaming the entire story in my mind each night!   Yep…I’m going to write a 50,000 page novel in 30 days. Now THAT’s scary!  

Wish me luck.

At 90 wpm, I might just be able to pull it off.
