Y’all know me by now, so you know I don’t do particularly well when the seasons change. I need my sunshine. Yeah, I get it, the fall colors are gorgeous, but I’m more in it for the sweaters, if I’m being honest. That is with one exception: Halloween.
When I was a kid we took Halloween very seriously. Saturdays at the pumpkin patch, picking out the perfect pumpkin ripe with Jack-O-Lantern potential. Scouring the racks of costumes at Kmart and pleading with our mom to let us take one home. Then, of course, there was the day itself! What greater joy for a child than this magical holiday?!
In our house we used pillowcases for our candy bags – PILLOWCASES! Like I said, it was magical.
These days I’m more likely to experience this joy vicariously through my niblings, and true to form the Ennekings are passing down the traditions full-force. I realize it may seem unnecessary to wear a costume just to escort kiddos around the neighborhood – but have you ever seen a child’s face light up when they see a grown adult in full costume? Worth it.
Whether you’re keeping it low-key this halloween with some sugar-crazed children or tearing it up at the club, the fun of dressing up is too good to deny! Who said being an adult has to be boring?
Let’s get spooky!
Who wouldn’t want to be this cute little plus size princess?
A cat, a spy, a witch… endless options with a plus size cat suit!
My personal fave? Staying warm and cozy while dressing up!
While I love the simplicity of buying a costume, there’s something to be said for a little DIY Halloween crafting. Check out my latest YouTube video for more Do It Yourself Halloween ideas!
