Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year.  It begins what I like to call the "Holiday Trilogy."  1st come costumes, fun, and parties.  Then comes thanks, food, and family.  Last comes the best of both worlds, sparkly lights, gaudy decorations, family, warmth, good food and PRESENTS!!!

This year Jeff and I decided to go as memes!  Jeff decided to be Domo... and since Domo eats kittens, I decided to be Nyan aka "Poptart" cat!  A delicious sounding cat. Here's what Domo and Nyan cat look like.

 This is Nyan cat.  Notice the Rainbow trail (I had to get creative to recreate this).

Here are 2 Domos chasing a kitten.

And here are our costumes...
So obviously Nyan Cat is a less-known character.  I could not find any poptart cat costumes, nor poptart costumes.  So I had to make my own.  I wore all gray workout pants, and a long-sleeve top.  I bought some thick artist board for the "crust," I bought light pink foam board, and dark pink foam board.  I made frosting, and then sprinkles with it.  I made 2 poptarts, then super glued some rope strings from a fancy bag I got from buying some clothes, and made straps for my poptarts.  I ordered a rainbow tutu from along with some ears, and a tail!  Tada!  Best Nyan Cat costume ever!  It's also the first one I have ever made myself!  Be proud of me.

Jeff's costume was easy to get.  We got it at  He was the hit of the party!

We had a lot of fun this year.  We went to a party with our friend, Chris, who was a hippy.  Sadly, I had so much fun I forgot to get any good photos.. and the ones I did will potentially offend some of my readers... so I have chosen to censor myself on this one.

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween!
