I didn't wear a costume last year... but usually my husband and I wear costumes that we made a few years ago.
Last time we wore them, I was pregnant. I barely sqeezed into the dress. LOL (As you can see in the photo)
Yes, my husband made his own chainmail. And yes, that is a real sword at his hip. This is his kind of geek.
Someday I want to make Vulcan robes.
Dunno if I'm going to dress up this year or not. With six kiddos, it's more about them than us on Halloween.
