Stef’s going to share some of her favorite costumes in this week’s 3 things. Seen above is her Madame Leota Halloween costume (from The Haunted Mansion at Disney). Yes, that’s her head in a crystal ball…

One more week until Halloween! Are you as excited as I am? Probably not—I’m REALLY excited for Halloween. While I won’t be hosting or attending any Halloween parties this year (my last attempt ended in 3 feet of snow and no electricity for 3 days with people stranded at my home), I love dressing up. I love coming up with a costume concept and really committing to the bit. It’s like being a kid again. Which brings us to this week’s 3 Things…

Funny. I always go funny. The more ridiculous, the better.

Best costume you’ve ever seen?
I once went to Washington D.C. to visit a friend on Halloween and we saw this guy at a club who was dressed as the Grim Reaper from “Scrooged” and he was wearing stilts. He danced and went to the bathroom in stilts (not sure of the logistics, but I laugh every time I think of him at the urinals).

Pet costumes: do or don’t?
DO. As long as it makes you laugh and the animal is into it. My current dogs aren’t much for costumes, but my last dog, Bindhi, loved her Headless Horseman costume where she was the horseman’s proud and noble steed. We kept telling her how proud and noble she was and she used to beg for us to put her costume on her. I miss that girl.

Your turn, weheartsters. Cut and paste the following into the comments and tell us these 3 Things:

Pet costumes: do or don’t?

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. Krista has been in the Bermuda Triangle twice and still hasn’t vanished. She is super proud of that.

    Pet costumes: do or don’t?
    Not for any of my dogs, but I know dogs owned by other people who won’t tear them off and eat them. ;)

    Scary, funny or sexy — anything goes it is Halloween – if you can’t dress up now when can you?

    Best Costume: Glenda the Good Witch from Wizard of Oz. It looked just the the movie.

    Pet Costumes Yes or No: I have Great Danes and they get really sad when I try a holiday headband or hat. It is as if they are saying “come on . . . Seriously?!?”

    Scary, funny, or sexy? I try to pull off amazing, but usually I just end up as funny!
    Best costume you’ve ever seen? I was walking by the Hippo a club in Baltimore and saw Dorothy and about 10 flying monkeys- they all just looked AH-mazing!
    Pet costumes: do or don’t? As an animal lover, I know I should say no, but I have been hysterically laughing all week at the kitty dressed as a pirate, complete with hook arm, so….

    Scary, funny, or sexy? Scary!
    Best costume you’ve ever seen? Last year, I saw the entire cast of Scooby Doo standing by a van decked out like the Mystery Machine. I’m still kicking myself for not taking a picture!
    Pet costumes: do or don’t? I like them in theory, but my dogs either try to eat the costume, or stand paralyzed in fear.
