The Beginning of Casual Costume October

I love Halloween.  I love dressing up.  Casual Costume October started with one vest in August.  In a box of hand me down clothes for my son, I found a puffy red vest that immediately reminded me of Marty McFly in Back to the Future.  I decided I would dress Kieran up like Marty, just for fun, for a picture.  Then I thought, hey, my hair is almost white right now, I’ll dress up like Doc Brown, it’ll be funny.

And I loved it!  Kieran didn’t love it so much.  I only got this one picture of him, then he started crying.

I loved it so much, I decided instead of just dressing up for Halloween, I would dress up every day in October.  Okay, every day is a bit ambitious.  How about every week day?  But I didn’t want to use actual costumes, the kind you buy from a store.  I wanted to do something a little more subtle, with things I already had or things I could get from a thrift store, using regular clothing.  And I didn’t always want people to think, “she’s wearing a costume, weird”.  I wanted it to be more like, “Hey, does that lady know she’s dressed exactly like Garth from Wayne’s World today?”

Here are the photos from my first Casual Costume October, 2014.
