After going back and forth about several ideas, Grey and I decided to be the Goodyear Blimp and a Goodyear mechanic/blimp handler for Halloween this year. I’ve never seen a human dressed as a blimp before and thought it seemed a little more original than my other ideas. I figured we needed to do something funny with my insanely huge pregnant belly, but I wanted a costume that didn’t involve painting my stomach like any sort of sports ball or fall vegetable.
Our cast-off alternatives to the Blimp couple were being a fallen angel (tarnished, broken halo, bent wings, blacked out tooth, etc.) and the Devil. I would have worn a sign that said, “The Devil made me do it.” Get it? Do it? Like, because I’m pregnant? Haha — I thought that was pretty funny. My other thought was to be a pregnant pause. But that costume seemed so boring (black leggings and a t-shirt with two vertical lines down it like the pause symbol). It would have been cheap and easy, but like I learned in college, just because something is cheap and easy doesn’t mean you should do it. And the last idea was to be a washed-up Playboy Bunny. I’d have ripped up my fishnets, teased my hair, smeared my lipstick, and obviously sported my big-ass belly front and center. Although for that one, I’d actually have to wear a limited amount of clothing, which I’m sure would be a little disturbing for me (and anyone who caught sight of me).
So today I finished up our costumes by swinging by the local Goodyear to see if they had any merchandise I could add to our attire. The mechanics were extremely nice and helpful in bringing to life my realistic embodiment of “The Blimp.” Can’t wait to get dressed up!
