I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!!
Seriously - it is one of my favorite holidays! Okay, I say that about most holidays, but I love halloween. I love putting on costumes and being silly. I do that all of the time but once a year - so do tons of other people. I am far too lazy to make my own costume, but I want a quality costume at a reasonable price.
When I was given the chance to pick out a costume to review - I was really excited. It took me about 2 weeks to decide which costume to review! I LOVE sexy costumes, but I have had 2 kids and one of them is only 2 months old, so sexy isn't really my thing just yet. I want to look good, sexy but still something I feel comfortable taking my kids treating in. Every year, even before I had kids, I go trick or treating with my sister in their neighborhood. There is one house that I love going to. If you are dressed up and an adult, they hand out beer! Who doesn't love that!
After looking through the HUGE selection of costumes, I finally decided on the Say Ahhh! costume. A sexy nurse.
The costume comes with the dress, a stethoscope, white and red nurses cap, and 2 syringes with red caps.
The dress is made of 96 % polyester and 4 % spandex. It is really lightweight which is great if you are in a bar or at a crowded halloween party. The dress is a sexy, short sleeve white dress with a white cross inside a red circle. The dress zips most of the way down if you need to get out of it quickly *wink*. A bonus for me because I am a breastfeeding mama and need access to the ladies! The dress can be zipped down as far as you want it to in order to cover more or less. The waist of the dress has two elastic bands for the syringes. The bottom of the dress has red pleats in 3 different areas. The middle pleated area is just below the zipper. Where the zipper ends, there is a gap in the pleat where there is no material. You don't notice it when you are wearing it and until I was taking pictures of the costume, I didn't even realize it.
The nurses cap is white with red at the top and a white cross inside a red circle. It is worn like a headband.
The syringes can be filled with any liquid you choose (BEER). Okay, let's face it. I'm a nursing mama, probably won't be getting my drink on, but I could with these syringes. The red cap on the bottom holds the liquid in and doesn't leak. They say ORAL REMEDY.
I love wearing this costume! John was taking pictures of me and I felt sexy! Something I haven't felt in quite awhile so it was fun. I am super excited for halloween now!
There are tons of great accessories you can buy to make your 2012 costume even more fun! Nurse earrings, nurse fishnets (I love fishnets - a little something from my roller derby days), nurse stethoscope, super sexy white nurse shoes
When John is home for Halloween, we like to dress in his and hers costumes. This year, he won't be home, but if he was, he would be the awesome Dr. Shots men's costume.
