Costumes

Hello!

Karen here, with a quick Halloween update. We've decided to have the first annual Haunted House Haunted House party this Halloween, in lieu of the treats that most of us have no use for (we're going to avoid tricks for the time being also, actually). I've done a quick poll of some of our friends to see what they are planning on going as, and here's what they told me, along with my own editorial comments:

Phoebe: A flapper (ooooh, pretty, I bet!)

Margi: Countess Bathory (Huh?)

Tommy: A zombie (jerk!)

Colette: "Evil Tinkerbell" (huh?)

Kevin: Rorschach (some sort of superhero, I guess)

Tak: (Stares sullenly, doesn't answer question)

Popeye: Pinhead (I won't tell you how he's making his "costume")

Tayshawn: Indiana Jones (Good for you!)

Adam: A zombie (big jerk!)

Sylvia: Hannah Montana

Melissa: Clown (Scary!)

Jacinta: "The Green Woman" (Not sure what this means, but apparently it involves wearing shrubbery)

Mal: Dumbledore (I can't wait!)

I was going to go as a "Traditionally Biotic Person" and dress in a way that I imagined would be incredibly ironic and funny, but A). I started to think it was a lame idea when Adam and Tommy shared their "ideas", and B). I kind of dress that way all the time, anyway.

So I need your help: What should my costume be?

What are you going as?

Ideas, people! (And please--don't tell me I should be a cheerleader!)

Bye sweeties!

Hmm...Well, I'm going to be a zombie cheerleader (no offense) I think you should go as something funny...or cute... I can't think of anything good enough though. Princess? Pop/rock star? Sorry I'm no help. but you are more than really awesome, so no matter what you go as, you will look really pretty :)Love ya, hun!

Jacy said...

hi karen!!
I think you should be a vampire. Have you read the book twilight? the vampires in that book are extremely gorgeous, and i think you could pull that off excellently!! =]

Karen DeSonne said...

Hi Cchvolleyball7,

No offense taken! But everyone has been telling me I should be a zombie cheerleader, so....I'm contrary. A princess could work...maybe the Ice Queen of Narnia?

Bye!
Karen

Karen DeSonne said...

Hi Jacy,

You're soooo sweet! I haven't read that book. And vampires are so, um, scary. I'm going to avoid scary this year.

Bye!
Karen

vamp_next_door said...

cheerleader, that was in a car accident or was beat by goths/emos....if i was going, i'd be a vamp... ;^)

Pipster said...

I think it would be totally cool if you were a vampire. you've got the pale skin, all you need are some freaky clothes and fangs. IT COULD SO WORK! YOU'D KNOCK EM DEAD!!! (pun so not intended, no offense either)

Belle_of_the_Valley said...

Hi Karen!

I'm going to be a tavern barmaid this year, and a friend of mine is going to be a vampire...a not scary one. I think you'd be a great vampire, since they're described as inhumanly beautiful, yet still human in a round about way of course. But if you would be a vampire the Twilight Vampire is a perfect chioce for the non-scary costume, as long as you're one of the family, I think you'd be a GREAT one, and all you'd have to do is dress up in some SUPER fancy clothes. or you could always be your favorite movie/tv show/book character..... hope this somewhat helped!!!!

mythologicalsweetheart said...

i think you should deff go as a vampire!! it would just be soo cool!!! and plus it would look amazing with you and everything!! i think your amazing and keep up on the updayes for us!!

puppyrock3 said...

I'm going as willy wonka... and I'm a girl :)

I thought it was original. I don't know what you should be, though.

caseygirl913 said...

hahahaha im actually being a zombie cheerleader this year! i used to be a cheerleader a couple years ago and now i hate it, thus zombie cheerleader came to be!

Alison said...

You should go as the Burger King Man.

Rosalie Hale said...

Hey Karen, ok you should be a vampire that would be so awseome! for halloween i am being one i love vampires! plz go check out my site at http://xoxoloveandeath.blogspot.com/
love ya hun,

Meg said...

wow, seems everyone is going as a zombie-cheerleader...perhaps I should re-think my costume.....
Nah! LOL!
Karen, you should totally go as the girl from I Dream of Genie! It would be totally awesome!!!
~Meg

YourDeadFriendBee said...

LoL
I always love Tak's answers, they make me smile!
Mmm... I think you should be a disney princess, you can totally pull of the Sleeping Beauty look ;p
Gorgeous!
love love,
-Bee!

Myo said...

I think you should be Snow White because she is pretty, a princess, and her skin is as white as snow. Additionally, you can address Tommy, Adam, and the rest of the boys as your seven dorks ( opps...I meant dwarfs... lol). Good luck on your quest for the perfect costume!

Anonymous said...

i think you should go as a prom queen! i bet you would look really pretty in a prom dress!

sarah said...

heyy karen the vampires in twilight DONT EAT PPL (well, the CULLENS dont) but you could go as rosalie, that would be so perfect! or i guess you could go as like a rock star or something like that...

cchsvolleyball7 said...

Hey Karen, thanks for writing back!
I think you would look really pretty as an ice queen of some sort...but wasn't the Narnia one evil? I haven't read it in a while though, so please correct me if im wrong. I finished Generation Dead last night. I LOVE that book! Love ya Karen,
Miranda

Wandering Ashara said...

Alo Karen!
I'ma be a doll this year. I bet you'd make a lovely Victorian Doll...or something of that nature.
Good luck!

~*ashara*~

Pipster said...

wasn't Elizabeth Bathory that countess who thought drinking blood would keep her young and beautiful forever? Margi's going to be her? they locked her in a tower to die.

sweet! why didn't I think of that!

Rochelle said...

This year, I'm going to be a zombie school girl. Maybe you could go as smurfett'.


=D

kay said...

a vampire would be pretty cool but i think a pirate would fit better

Anonymous said...

you she be a ragdoll!! so cute!

Anonymous said...

Hey Karen.
i wish i would have seen this post earlier! gosh. well im going as a pirate. but have you ever thought of being a chineese person? that would be so cool! you could do your hair all up in a bun and wear a robe and really exagerated makeup! i think it sounds cool. xoxoxoxoxoxox love ya!

Brit said...

oo! hi karen. its been a while since i've posted any comments on this wonderful site. i think you should be a vampire for the party.

i love vampires and i'm inot the whole twilight thing, and like you're really cool, and you'd look look awesome as a vampire. :)

i'm really excited for tomorrow. :)

Sarisse said...

I was a zombie last year, I looked totally awesome. Yeah, I'm new to the Tommy's blog. Everyone's costumes sound great except for the people who are going as themselves. Lets be creative people! My friends and I are being the seven deadly sins. I'm Greed. Halloween is tomorrow, so to speak, and we are throwing a huge party.
So Happy Halloween!

~Sarisse

Werewolf Princess said...

HEY KAREN>>>>>
I agree with Jacy 100% the twilight vamps are the best things EVER... trust me i should know. The vamps aren't too scary...maybe you should go as...hmm..Dorothy from the wizard of oz. Or one of the Disney princess, like belle (OHHH THAT"D BE AWESOME!)

~The Real Werewolf

~VALIN~ said...

Definately go as the vamp...pale skin, gorgeous...it could sooo work. Vamps are amazing, Halloween is my fave holiday, shed the human garbage and go as my true self...werewolf.

<><><><>
Just another Wolf
.Valin.

Brittany said...

Well, this halloween I'm tottally going as a refridgarator! I made my costume out of a box and put alpabet magnetics all over it. It would be really sweet if you went as a ketcup bottle or maybe a Christmas present!!!! Whatever it is, just have fun! :D

Fae said...

i'm going to be a purple sparkly witch. =]] karen, you should be a cat. i'm not sure how to do that really, but everytime i think about the way u act, u remind me of a cat. anyway, good luck!

SamW said...

Adam and Tommy are party poopers!!!I am being a pyshico prom queen!!!Ummmm maybe you should dress like a vampire like jacy said... you could definately pull it off!!! luv you karen!!

kelsbug0424 said...

What is up with everyone being a freakin zombie cheerleader!?!?! Well I'm going as an angel It's a really pretty costume though. So there's an idea.


~Kelsey~

Danielle Marie said...

Maybe you could go as Little red Riding hood or something.

Taylin said...

i love the Disney Princess idea!! actually everyone's ideas are perfect. whatever you decide to go as, you will look absolutely beautiful. im going as Superwoman this year. my friends and i have a superhero theme =]

Bat Bike said...

Well alot of people are talking about going as a princess. A friend of mine who has REALLY pale skin went as an INDIAN princess last year. That'd be totally fawesome. She got a sari and everything. You'd look good whichever way though C:

Tommy Williams said...

The creativity from you folks continues to astound me.

And congrats to Meg. As soon as I passed your suggestion on to Karen she gasped and ran off to start work on her costume, so Jeannie it is.

She says she's going to get Tak to be "Master", but I don't believe it.

And Allison--please! There are kids on the board--please don't suggest anything as horrifying as the Burger King Man!

Happy Halloween,
T.

Hailee-Boo <3 said...

I dont know where else to post this but its sort of random!! Firstly I would like to say I LOOOVEEE this book, although I think that Pete should have died instead of Adam... how is Adam anyways??

Secondly, this book would make a really great movie, it would be so funn to see in the theater.

And Thirdly, Karen you sound gorgeous, from the description in the book... I totally agree a vampire would suit you very well:) Thats what I am going out tonite as anyways... the bar should be very exciting! Have funn sweetie:) <3<3

oOMermaidBubblesOo said...

eew the bk man is SO scary and my friends and i are going as dead barbie-she fell off a cliff, funeral barbie-shes mourning dead barbie, and anti barbie- the one who pushed dead barbie of a cliff.

Paris said...

They all sound like wonderful costumes! Well, besides the zombie ones. Cheaters! ha ha. I'm going as someone from The Matrix. Ya know, black clothes, black trench coat, sunglasses...yea. My friends were going to do it with me, but they bailed. Oh well, too bad for them! I hope that you all have a great Halloween!
-Paris

Erin!Mal said...

Bat Bike said...

Hey,
I think Colettes 'Evil Tinkerbell' idea was fawesome.I bet she looked fabulous. You couldn't tell me what she wore to achieve the look could you? Some of my friends like to dress up and take photos with thier fancy camera just for fun.C:
Love ya, BB

alexis said...

Hey Karen, I think you should sssssoooooo be a cheerleader! lol, just for the fun of it :)

♥ alexis

Paris said...

I just realized what Margi said she was going as. Countess Bathory?! Eww, she was like a real live vampire.

Anonymous said...

Erm, can I just say that 'Pipster' was wrong about Countess Bathory. She didn't drink blood, she bathed in the blood of virgins to stay young. And she wasn't locked in a tower. It was a suite of rooms that were bricked up.

OliviaGrace said...

well ik halloween has already past but haha im gonna tell yall who iw as anyways lol my bff sydnea went as Demi Lovato and i went as selena gomez lol it was so funny we wore like 6 inch heels and like were dying by the end but Karen i think you should have been something like cute or u should have been like Rosalie from the Twilight series u like fit her description perfectly lol oh well maybe next year or summin

Whatruthinking said...

I was a nerd with my bff it was cool we had the tape on the glasses and everything Love ya

joanne said...

You should have gone as a pixie. I went as a pixie. I can imagine you going as a pixie, but now halloween is over so puh.

Kristin said...

okay, just to let you know.
i was also an evil tinkerbell. it;s not that weird.

Amanda said...

one of my friends was a flapper for halloween too.

Whittney.R said...

i was a Black Cat i bet u would be stuning as a Cat or a "Prom Quieen"

Vampire-Zombies said...

Hi Karen, i think you should dress up as a Vampire! You would look amazing as a Vampire just like Alice Cullen, she's from the book i read called Twilight. Have a nice time! love ya ^^

bostonbabe212 said...

hmmm... for u thats a tough one. it has to be something cute, but sassy. funny, but serious. maybe u and a freind could be something together. my and my friend we ketup and mustard bottles. u should be like a vampire, since ur so pretty.

Melissa said...

hey Karen
I might be no help but....
I think you should be....
an angel, because you are really sweet!!

BlackRose said...

Talk about being way belatted, but I want to participate (sorry for any misspelling) in the conversation. I think you should go as a marble statue. I have no idea how you would do the costume, but the ideas don't have to be realistic, right?!

Anna

soccrfrek1 said...

hi karen, im just curious...in this post was adam a dead-head (no offense. sorry that name just sounds kool to me.) yet? And u should have been a dancer from dancing with the stars

DerekszMate said...

Thiss isz extremely simple.
Go as a scary rocker-who-died-then-came-back-to-life !
its the total opposite of what you are !
You could get tips from Pheobe, and be a zombie rocker 4 halloween it'll be epic !

DerekszMate said...

Btw - Kevin's costume is a psychologist who developed the ink blot test . I've taken it a couple of times, and its kind of fun if a whole psychoanalyis doesn't depend on itt =)

Anonymous said...

Hey there Karen-

for hallowen im being a fairy!!! I told my friends about it and they thought it was an awsom idea. You should be something cute and indevisul (? idk how to speel it?) Do wat ever you want but just be u!!!

Lizzy G forever&always <3<3

Ocean Eyes said...

Yea, I know I'm late but maybe next you could go as a emo fairy. Thats what I did. Dye a streak of your hair some color(easy for us kuz we r blondes!), get a black mini skirt and a black cami or long sleeve shirt(short sleeve tees don't look good)and get some black sparkly fairy wings! good luck
xoxo
