Couples Costumes and Body Issues

Lily: Guess what came in the mail today?
Marshall: Our costumes? Do they rule?
Lily: They rule. And yours is 100% wool so you won’t get hypothermia like last year.
Marshall: [deep voice] Tarzan nipple blue. –How I Met Your Mother

So I wrote awhile back that Match and I are dressing up in Couples Costumes for Halloween this year. I have been so excited about this-it is officially the first year I’ve gotten to wear a couple costume, ever. I think it’s kind of fitting-I’m finally in a real relationship, and now I’m getting to do all of these real couply things. Last night Match and I picked out pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch, and we braved the corn maze. I’d never been in a corn maze before, and I of course thought it would just be soooo easy. I thought we’d be through it in 15 minutes, tops.

40 minutes later, we finished the maze. πŸ˜‰ It was so much fun though; we were laughing so hard, and of course Match posed for pictures using corn as a prop in inappropriate places…yeah. He’s such a grown up! πŸ™‚

After fun at the Pumpkin Patch we tripped over to the costume store to scope the costumes. We opted for searching online since it’s way cheaper, and after a full day of discussion, we finally decided on what it would be. So are you ready for this? I’m going as Alice and Match is going as the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. How cute is that? We’re putting a spin on the White Rabbit too-he’s going to go for White Rabbit as my body guard-wearing just a vest, bunny hood, and of course the oversized pocket watch. πŸ™‚ I’ll see if I can post some pics sans face shots.

For me, I ordered this outfit, amongst the various versions of Alice there are out there.So of course now that I’ve purchased this sexy little number, I can’t help but pick apart my body and stress over how to look good in it. I am planning on doing extra crunches every day, and I’m thinking about whitening my teeth with those Rembrandt whitening strips. I also am in desperate need of a haircut. Maybe it’s the fact that Halloween is the Slut Holiday and I worry that Match is going to find all the other girls sexier than me, or maybe it’s that Match and I live together now and I’m afraid he’s gotten too comfortable with me and I’m not new and sexy anymore. I know these are silly thoughts, and Match tells me every day how lucky he is to have me, but still I experience these little bouts of insecurity. Anyone else excited/freaked out about baring more skin than usual this Halloween?

    That’s to funny I’m also being Alice this year but my costume is a little different than the one you chose. And don’t worry about you will be fine! I was the tooth fairy last year (which showed more skin) and X was the denitist. It was to funny! So this year I’m happy to not be showing quite as much!

    I understand your fear… Going with a group of friends as sexy Devils and Angels. On the crazy work out plan now to fit into my costume!

    Have fun on Halloween πŸ™‚

    You guys are too cute! ha! I can’t wait to see your costumes. I’m thinking I’m working this year so I didn’t order a costume. I’m going to be bummed if I’m off and I don’t have a costume though. ha!

    Love the Alice outfit…you’re gonna look smokin’.

    You’re sooo lucky to be a couple for Halloween! That’s the best thing ever! Love the costume choice. One Halloween, I went as a sexy cop, and my ex went as a jailbird. It was very fitting to our relationship.

Your comments make my day!
