Halloween pic

Since it was one of you who suggested it, you get the trick-or-treat of a photo of my Halloween costume:





(Though you can see the belly better from the side, of course.)

A big thank-you and congrats to terrylj for suggesting the idea. You win a fun-size packet of M&M's. (As an aside, I've always thought a five-pound bag would be a much more "fun" size.)

This is perhaps the least effort I've ever put into a Halloween costume. On the other hand, it sort of surprises me that I've never dressed as chocolate until now.

*giggles like a loon*

That is insanely adorable. So cute (both you and the 'drop! hee) and an excellent costume choice :D

Thanks so much for sharing these!

Thanks - knew there must be some compensation for feeling like a tired elephant. :)

Absolutely! I've never held to the notion that the tiny chocolate bars were "fun size". "Tiny size" more like it.

"Wishful thinking in advertising," we could call it...

I would be afraid of being accidentally given away to a trick-or-treating child.

Always a risk. Incidentally, I wonder if it seems cannibalistic for me to give away M&M's in this costume?

That's an issue they dealt with once in a commercial.

The Ms seem to take it in stride.

Squee! You and Lemondrop make a very convincing (and cute!) bite-sized chocolate candy.

At this time, I shall quote the imminent sages Chris Farley and David Spade in their seminal work "Tommy Boy" for no other reason than the fact that the bellow also concerns m&ms. Plus, it's late and I'm easily amused at this hour.

Farley: I think we're okay. They have a hard candy shell. I'm surprised you didn't know that.
Spade: You're brain has a hard candy shell.

Heheh. I guess I should see that movie eventually, since I do tend to fall for the silly comedy. And I'm glad you told me those lines in particular, just in case anyone quotes them to me. Now I will Get It.

Aw, that's the cutest Halloween costume EVER. :D

Thanks! Though I figure whatever baby costume I force upon the child next year may well end up being cuter.

Cute use of the bump!

You're so going to be one of those women who as soon as she has the baby looks normal-sized again! But hey, check out the boobs! ;)

I'd settle for getting my energy level back again. But yes, the ballooning cleavage is kind of fun, at least--and should only increase once it comes time to breastfeed. ;)

Sorry that I've been out of touch. The costume came out great! Wanted to let you know, I went to a party last night using Daniel Revelstoke's csotume idea. Reactions were great! Someone took a picture, when I get a copy I will forward it to you. Cheers.

Awesome! I considered using it myself, since with the pregnant belly a "victim of love" has even more consequence, but then I didn't want anyone to take it as some kind of tacky rape reference, so...yeah. Would love to see a photo though. :) Cheers!

Aw, the two of y'all are so cute!

You know that next year the baby has to be a lemon drop. Absolutely.

That would be pretty cute. :) I will have to look around for fruit-themed costumes...

Re: nice serifs!
Hehe - thanks! The world wasn't ready for the saddle shoes when I first got them, about 5 years ago ("Do you play golf?" was the usual question), but I get many compliments now.

Stupid thing about the serif-M...I spent a while looking for an M&M font, until realizing all I needed to do was find a picture of the M, enlarge it, print it, and trace it onto label paper. Which I eventually did.
