I have to say, I was in a rut for Halloween costumes this year. Usually I start researching and brainstorming months in advance, but this year I was overwhelmed by so many other things that it was the last thing on my mind. When I realized I was in desperate need of Halloween inspiration, I turned to my three go-to’s:

Over at my house we might be the only people thinking about elaborate 80’s character costumes in the springtime. As you [should] know, a birthday party isn’t complete without a theme, and a theme isn’t complete without a full fledged costume.
