How could I resist?

I've always known that when I had children myself, that I would take full advantage of that fact and dress up for Halloween with them. I come by it honestly since my own dad usually dressed up with us. SO, I decided that I wouldn't mind getting a nice costume with some appropriate accoutrements. And here is what I came up with:

After all, All Things Harry Potter will always be classic. A worthy investment in my Halloween Future, no?

You're too young and cute to be a McGonnagall but I can't deplore Potter-geekiness in anyone.

My goal is to be a Dead Sexy version of McGonagall.

Perhaps, I should wear my Little Black Dress that was purchased earlier this year?

I have a vintage Izod dress coming to me live from ebay ... hello Margot Tenenbaum!

How cool, these types of the things are what makes having kids an even cooler bonus. Your costume is very cool, love, love, love the hat!

I still have yet to decide a costume for my little monster...ugh!

So fun! I wish I had kids so I could dress up without feeling like a dork!

eek, I totally dig the Royal Tenenbaums homage.

My 3 1/2 yo decided he and his 2 yo brother should be Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Cat in the Hat (I am so proud that he is choosing literary costumes!). So, how easy would it be for me to throw on one of those Cat in the Hat hats and a red bow over a black turtle neck? Voila! However, who could hubby be? The fish?

Cool! Er...is that costume available for rent THIS year? That one's MUCH better than the step-into Horse one that we bought.

I definitely agree. The question is, can you do the accent? I'm partial to Harry myself:

Love it, love it! Fun! (coming from a woman with a Cruella DeVille costume in her closet from before she even had kids!)
