I’ve never been a big Halloween-dresser-upper, but this year was just too enticing. Amy and I decided to go as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully – pretty easy, all things considered.
Amy (as Fox) wore: a grey wool blazer that I got for $5 at a thrift store, a pair of blue jeans, some (softball-dirt-stained) white socks, black loafers, and a white button-down that I found at Target for $19.
I (as Dana) wore: my grey suit jacket, my blue jeans, black socks, my black boots, a white shirt with a “johnny collar”, and a small cross pendant on a chain. I also tried to dye my hair Scully-orange, but it just ended up as a (gorgeous) russet instead. Apparently it’s time for me to get back into dying my hair, because this color rocks! I found some reddish lipstick, too, and wore that.
On Saturday, I poked all around the internet and found images of the FBI badges they have – both the wallet ones and the hanging ones for when they’re inside the Bureau. I printed them out and laminated them. We put the wallet ones in our wallets, hung the hanging ones on our shirts, and called it a costume. We headed to Mac’s for a party, and generally had a good time. Somehow I managed to fall asleep during the creepy movie “The Changeling”. I’m not upset.
Aren’t we cute?:
