Super Kate!

I love costume parties! Any excuse to add some fun and stretch your creativity sounds great to me! And you don't have to limit yourself to just halloween - themed costume events can happen any time of the year and for no special occasion really either! Feel like doing some tarot card readings over snacks with some buddies? Why not make it a day of it and dress up like gypsies while you're at it? What fun! Perhaps make some extra witty lolcatz coloured costumes for a work related bowling event? Sure! How about a plaid potluck? The possibilities are endless! Well - I don't seem to have any photographic evidence of our tarot/lol/plaid days, but I did manage to scrounge up these pics from the last few costumed years:

Fun times! And since I recently attended a super hero themed birthday party I figured this was a perfect chance to share my costume! Especially since I spent the majority of my day at a wedding shower and by the time I got to the party I was pretty much the only one in costume. Eep! Behold - "Super Kate!"

Hooray! And don't let the costume's simplicity distract you from my super powers - projective kittens!!! Aren't they frightening?

Yeah...probably not. But I was certainly pleased with my last minute hero design. Plus that red silky cape could totally come in handy later in life. If only I brought some real evil kitty ammo to defeat those villains! Anyone who's met percy knows not to mess with him...even if he is super cute...

Oh well. Next time. What was your favourite costume you've ever worn?


  1. i had a really good cyndi lauper costume once. also, one year i was lindsay bluth from arrested development but people thought i was brittany spears, haha.

  2. I want to have a costume party!! I never really dress up. I used to think it would be fun to have a theme for my outfits everyday. Too bad my budget doesn't really allow for that. It would be so fun!!! :) I love your costumes! I'm feeling very inspired to have a costume get together now. Thanks!

  3. Super Kate looks super... odd? Expression-wise anyway. It looks like you're trying to decide whether to eat the spider crawling on the wall or send Percy after it.

    Nice costumes! I'm sure there's photographic evidence of the plaid party, because I've seen it. Just got to keep searching, I guess!

    I have lots of awesome costumes. And so will my baby after mom gets sewing! It will be about a month old this Halloween, but, as you know, you really don't need to wait for Halloween to rock some awesome costumes.
