Halloween: Sun-Maid Raisin Girl!

Bwah-ha - I pulled it off!

To totally toot my horn: this was my best costume ever. Not only was it well-received, it was comfortable (jeans and red flip-flops on the bottom). Oh, and I didn't look like a hooker! I think that's one reason why people (especially ladies in underwear-as-outerwear costumes) liked my costume: it was original and didn't pander...note that I wasn't a "sexy" boobs-a-poppin' Sun-Maid Raisin Girl. And I had little boxes of raisins to hand out! People love getting miniature food items on Halloween!

  • 23" embroidery hoop
  • Yellow fabric
  • Elastic arm straps
  • Custom-made bonnet from Grandma's Girl
  • White top from Goodwill
  • Basket tray from Goodwill
  • Fake grapes - the most expensive part of my costume!
  • Sun-Maid Raisins
Why, oh, why does Halloween only come once a year? Sigh. I had a great one this year: went to a fun party with work people, drank good beer (Dead Guy Ale), reunited with my somewhat estranged boyfriend, was asked to pose in pictures with various strangers - a really fun night.

Another fun part of my night? Handing out eyeball kamikaze jelly shots! Those are coming up tomorrow - stay tuned!
