obligatory halloween post featuring amazing costumes for wheelchair users!

Hey everybody, happy rainy and gross and possibly tornado-filled Halloween! [Tangent: Yeah that's right, it has been pretty and fairly nice all week, but then today Mother Nature's bottom is supposed to fall out in the Mid-State area. Thankfully, I am childless and too old to trick-or-treat without it just being weird, so I'm not letting it literally rain on my parade. I guess all the kiddos will just come to knock and pumpkin smash on November 1st instead. ]   This morning when I got up, I got sad for about 2 milliseconds because for years I've  rocked a costume for work, [Tangent: even when no one else did and I was the asshole in a pirate costume.] and this year my day of Halloween costume is that of an underemployed lady wearing jeggings and a tshirt. Boo. I then remembered last year Halloween fell on my work from home day anyway,  and at the time,  I was kind of elated because at that point I was anti spirit. This made me feel better. Two milliseconds of sadness instantly erased.

I was gonna go visit baby Claire today but I really have a huge fear of driving my car when it rains too hard because the wipers suck. [Tangent: All the NICU babies are wearing costumes today and really what can get cuter than that. Kristen informed me that all the girl babies are gonna be French Maids, which is something that made me laugh terribly hard. Seemed scandalous for pint size babies! I love it! ] Dang, what was I gonna do to get in the spirit? Something had to happen.

The costume party I am attending isn't until Saturday [Tangent: And I am still working on my costume after our 3rd trip to Joann's. Pics to follow next week.], so technically the only reminder that today is a holiday at all is the fact that the cast of The Chew were dressed up like the Spice Girls. In fact not even cable is helping me out today.  I was itching to watch some horror movies, but apparently slasher movies don't cater to a daytime audience. Lame. Instead, I watched Notes on a Scandal for like the third time. I guess a British drama about statutory rape starring Judi Dench is frightening as Children of the Corn, right?

Being that today is probably my favorite holiday, I don't like that I have not yet celebrated accurately, so I decided to share with you my favorite costumes for us wheeled ones.  Example: Remember when Mac's character is Saved was a Roller Skate? [Tangent: My friend Beth also did this genius idea a few years ago on all Hallow's eve.]

Since childhood, I have realized that people in chairs have a HUGE advantage on this holiday, because it can be completely impractical and impossible to walk in. There are so many out there, but these are my all-time faves.


I'm lucky enough to know the gal on the 1's and the 2's. Spinderella was my roomie for 2 years!

I know I have mentioned this chick before, but for real her costumes amaze me. Check out her blog and other costumes here
the same girl who brought to life Pee Wee did this genius display this year. Read about it here.
this adorable wheel of fortune kid was found on wheelchaircostumes.com

after watching and being obsessed with Behind the Candelabra, you know I LOVED this one featured here

I know this seems unwieldy, but it is seriously awesome.
I read about this amazing costume here.

I am only mad I didn't think of this costume. It's a Barbie styling head. My sister and I will forever call these "Barbie Big heads"

Both this shark week costume and the one above were blatantly stolen from this site

After looking at all these, I think I really need to up my game!!! What are you gonna be?

    On the cydia web page, choose the Obtain Packages button at the
    leading. Aside from that the telephone also lacks
    a video recorder.

  9. Although many people won't find this computer prank hilariously funny, it's a good way to get revenge on someone who is a perpetrator of pranks.

    Abandoned Mineshafts - Just as the name suggests,
    these are mines pre-carved into the game world and
    they can stretch for miles in all different directions to create a maze and intersect with ravines and caves.
    However, six also happens to be the variety of victories the Pittsburgh
    steelers have after 13 several weeks after dropping five directly, such as activities to
    Might Town, Concord, and Cleveland.
