Halloween for Fatties.

I've begun the process of trying to find a suitable Halloween costume. As MANY of you ladies out there know, this usually sucks major balls when you're a fat chick. In years past, all I can remember being available to me was this:

Dan and I were looking at these and just laughing our asses off. Is this really the only option to plus size chicks? Wearing what's basically a modified version of a Snuggie? I've been there before, and honestly, that's why I've not dressed up or done anything for Halloween the last two years in a row.

But recently I've noticed a much higher availability of plus size costumes. And this year I've seen lots of really cool costumes for plus size girls. These ones aren't just MooMoo-Shmocks disguised as "costumes"... they're actually SEXY costumes. I went to Buycostumes.com today and found these:

Woo to the freakin' HOO! Now, I'm not sure if I have the balls to pull off a short skirt like these, but I'm really happy to know it's an option. If I'm not brave enough, there are middle of the road ones available too.

I'm just glad to know I won't be stuck wearing this:

If I really feel like wearing this:

SO! In addition to this, I wanted to give a little nod to my friend Hanlie over at Fertile Healthy for posting an entry about Steve's "Hot 100 (Going out with a Bang!)" Challenge.

Here’s the information you need to know:
  1. You have to come up with some goals.
  2. You have to publish those goals.
  3. You have to give a status follow-up on those goals at least every ten days.
Oh! And if you participate, be sure to leave him a comment HERE so he knows to include you in the drawing.

So... I don't have mine fingered out yet, and I'm not sure if I'm going to do it, but I wanted to pass the info along to any of you fabulous folks who are being motivated by The Biggest Loser, or just feeling like you're in a little bit of a slump and would like some extra OOMPH! to push you toward your goals. The prize does sound wonderful, especially if you like some extra spice in your life. :)

I'll keep you all posted on my participation decision in a few days. I just need to come up with some realistic goals, and I think I just might do it. :)

Halloween has always been a part of the year that I totally dread, due to nothing fitting right. Those one size fits all leggings? That's all below size 14, and the rest is the same. This year, I have options, as I'm more size 8/10, but I still dread it and can't afford anything. I don't want to buy expensive stuff to wear once, now do I want a cheapo slutbag costume. I have a whole bag of strange thrift store stuff, I'll figure something out. I just got my first party invite, expect one more (no people overlap), so at least I'll get to wear it twice.

ooh! I've always wanted to wear one of those costumes, and I'm so glad they're in plus-size now!

Can't wait to see you post some pictures of yourself in one of them!

Thanks for the link! I have to get my goals figured out tonight so I am ready to post them with the beginning of the contest tomorrow.

I have never gotten into Halloween too much as an adult, but one of the gals that works for me always has crazy costumes. She really, really gets into it. Have fun with it!

Nice!, you got any ideas for skinny dudes? I usually just turn the lights out and try to scare the kids away...now I wish I had some ideas for costumes, but...;)

I want to be a dominatrix for Halloween. Is that normal? :O

This post made me laugh. I have never shopped for a halloween costume. I made mine last year a friend of mine and I went as juice boxes which is relatively unsexy, but was a lot of fun. When you mentioned the Snuggy and I watched the infomercial it was all over from there for me. I love the way you write, it's so straight forward and endearing. I definitely enjoyed this post.
