Do you typically make your Halloween costume or buy it? Growing up in a house full of creativity, I always find myself coming up with something creative for Halloween. My mom hand-sewed all of mine and my sisters costumes growing up. From a Hersey’s Kiss to Belle to a Pink Lady, each costume always had a special touch knowing my mom made them. As an adult I find myself crafting up my yearly Halloween costume. 


This year was a little last minute and it needed to be work appropriate. I love a good pun and keeping up with current events. It was also really important to me that I use items that I already own. So what did I come up with this year? Take a guess…
