My Halloween Costume? Snap!

I can't remember the last time I actually wore a costume for Halloween. Ok, maybe a few years ago when I wore the witch costume that I've had for ages to my friend Vee's party. But that's kind of a lame costume. {It's just a black dress and a black hat.}

Other than that, the extent of a Halloween costume for me is usually a pair of orange and black socks and maybe a spider pin on my shoulder.

This year my co-workers at the chiropractor's office where I work decided that we'd dress in costume. And we decided to be Snap, Crackle and Pop ~ characters that represent the popular breakfast cereal Rice Krispies. We decided that Dr. Dave would be Pop {get it, he's a chiropractor?}, our massage therapist was Crackle, and yours truly was Snap. :o}

We pieced our costumes together with what we had on hand, as well as what we could gather up from our local thrift store. I made the hats, and I embellished Dr. Dave's jacket. We'll submit our photo to our corporate office and will know next week if we win the costume contest.

Because Halloween falls on the weekend this year, most businesses that dress in costume did so today. It makes for an interesting ride to work when the person in the car next to you is dressed as a clown or a zombie. Or Snap. :o}

The chef hat that I made for my costume was done using a tutorial I found here. Check it out ~ it's a cute little hat that would be adorable paired with a matching apron.

Have a safe and happy Halloween weekend everyone!
