Part Two Of The Halloween Big Reveal: Our Costume Was…


Like this:

The fruit basket

Only better:

A Still Life With Fruit. And Cute.

At least the bowl is still paying attention.

Catch up on how we got here in Part One. Or just meet the art!

E the Banana

Pensive banana.

Chiquita did NOT sponsor this post.

N the Apple

I can't believe she tolerated this.

She only ran when she saw the candy bowls. And squirrels. Otherwise, it was the SLOWEST WALK EVER.

Alex the Grapes

Finally all the grapes are back. Also the headband is for a dog. Shut up.

Scott the Bowl & Frame

Just in case you thought he was a diaper.

Hope y’all had a happy Halloween! We did. Once we left the neighborhood party and methodically collected enough candy to not grocery shop for a week.

Disclaimer: All posts this week will be written high on sugar after battling two children high on sugar. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Great family costume! I never would have thought of a doing a still life, I love how it turned out! The frame really pulls it together, go Scott for playing that part. I love it when people are willing to sacrifice for Halloween.

    1. You’re a genius! But then what will we do for that entire day I run after my Christmas-colored children yelling STOP! SMILE! STAND NEAR EACH OTHER! NOT THAT CLOSE! PUT BACK ON YOUR PANTS!

  2. Max points and kudos for creativity. Point of order… N was going at the Proper Speed. Stalking and hunting are SUPPOSED TO BE SLOW. You only pounce when you lay eye on your prey. Scott- The Uber Husband/Father! Being the Bowl? The vessel that holds the family together? Kinda Freudian when you think of it. How come you didn’t get to be the bowl?

    PS: Spotted the Mobile Kid Transporter (wagon). WTG!!

  3. You outdid yourselves! I wish you had come to my house! The best costumes we saw this year were also from a family: The father, who is actually a doctor, came dressed as a patient, complete with a hospital gown and bare rear end out the back (made of plastic). His three year old was dressed as a surgeon, complete with a stethoscope and mask. The mom was a nurse, and she had a hypodermic and a bedpan. I love Halloween. We ran out of candy. molly

  4. AAAAAAHHHH WOw!!! It’s the most awesome family halloween costume I’ve ever seen by someone I actually know! Kudos for health consciousness, art reference, craftiness and husband-who-will-play-along-with-craftiness. 🙂
