Welcome to Housiversary Day 3: The Costumes Edition. I know what you are thinking, costumes? What do costumes have to do with your Housiversary?
Well, my blog covers all different aspects of our lives and I’ve never really touched on this one. You see, we both participate in 5k, half-marathons, and other such athletic activities when not working on the house. Greg tends to win divisional placing for speed whereas I have to depend on winning if there is a costume contest.
I wish I was kidding but I search them out. We are driving to VA Beach so I can try to win their 10k costume contest.
And last year we had a ton of left over moving boxes, so of course we were fuzzy dice. A few yards of discount fabric, a few black plates, and a few minutes in between unpacking/organizing and we were set.
Sadly, we did not win. But we attempted costumes again with The Big Lebowski Fest at the Ambler Theater. I made Greg his Lebowski pants and undershirt. Apparently it is very easy to dye an old undershirt in a bit of acrylic paint and water. I went as The Rug.
This time we had success, mostly because I tied it all together. We had won Most Creative Costume which came with movies passes and The Big Lebowski on blu-ray. Greg has already been thinking about next year.
Our final costume of the year was for vindication. We were very disappointed that our fuzzy dice costume did not win especially after how many people asked us to pose. Well, this year Greg came up with a brilliant idea– coffee cup and donut. A few hours later, I made Greg a Dunkin Donut costume and a donut for myself. We showed up to the Rest in Peace 5k and won.
Vindication never tasted so better especially since we won a restaurant gift certificate.
