Rosie the Riveter wishes you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

So I posted last week about my Halloween plans and told you all that I was dressing up as Rosie the Riveter.  My costume turned out perfect!!  And the best part ya' only cost me $15 to make the whole thing!!  You can't beat that!  Are you ready to see the pictures?  Here goes...

 I am very pleased with how well my poster turned out.  All it is, is a navy blue piece of foam board from Hobby Lobby, a yellow poster board, also Hobby Lobby and white card stock was used for the letters.  I free-handed the "voice bubble" for the lettering.  For the letters I blew up a picture of the poster from the Internets and printed out each word on a separate piece of paper, then cut those out, traced them and had clean white letters.  It took me about 10 minutes to make!  EASY!!

Now for the fun part...all the pictures I took at the Cedar Springs Street Party.  I'm only posting the PG-13'd be amazed what people wear down there.  They use it as an excuse to wear just their undies...which I find weird! :)

 The "black" Swan, Dolly and the Black/White Swan

 This was awesome!  Harry and Voldemort!  The Voldemort guy was pretty scary up close!

 I couldn't get a good picture of this's "The Hungry Monster" from the WW's commercials.  Fellow dieters will appreciate this one!

 Another one I had trouble getting a good picture of...this guy was on stilts and as you can see, taller than the firetruck.  He was with a group of scary clowns.  I hate clowns!!  Probably why I didn't get a good picture, I was scared to get too close!

Dead Pee-Wee Herman with my friend Leah, her face is priceless!

My friend Heather and I.  She was a Fraggle Rock...bless her heart, so many younger people didn't understand what she was!  I think she looked adorable!!

 I loved this girls peacock was beautiful!

My friend Glenna with Brandi and her husband Casey.  They all looked amazing!  Brandi and her mom made Casey's costume on Saturday, they did a terrific job!!

 Edward Scissor Hands.  I bet those hands got annoying after did he drink or eat?

We found Heather some fellow characters!

As you can imagine, there were a lot of Lady Gaga's, this girl looked great!!  Not the one in the purple...not sure what she even is...

This group was fun...she is Eve and her apple was blingy, loved it!

 SIMON, remember that game?  Awesome costume!

Glenna aka The Red Queen

 Casey aka The Mad Hatter

Black Swan

My friend Corey and I.  Didn't he look cute?!

And last, but certainly not least...the cutest Halloween Ducky, nephew Zane!

Happy Halloween Ya'll...

Enjoy...The Curvy Life!
