In the end though it all turned out wonderful, I'll take that as a miracle from the Great Pumpkin. :) Speaking of which, here are our pumpkins this year!
Zach originally wanted to go as Tom Cruise in Top Gun but like all Halloween costumes anymore jumpsuits are crazy expensive. Instead he decided to go as Sherlock Holmes, the newer one with Robert Downey Jr. Which he is totally obsessed with at the moment. At first he looked like a complete mess but after I styled him a bit it looked 10x better. I seriously just now noticed that I inadvertently matched his ascot to my dress!!!
I still went as Esmeralda/gypsy but I added stuff to the costume to make it better. Around the bottom of the teal sash, I added some more Gold coins. It made an awesome jingling noise as I moved. I also added a ton of bracelets and bangles and four huge rings. Oh and the most fantastic purple eyeshadow. It was so vibrant and shimmery. It was the loose eyeshadow from the Twilight collection that Hot Topic released around the holiday's last year. I love it. It went on really easy, stayed on all night, but came off super easy when I washed my face before bed.
