Last night we dressed up and headed out of SantaCon in Downtown West Palm Beach. SantaCon is a pub crawl like the Zombie Crawl we did a few months ago. The Zombie Crawl started at 6PM. I thought that was really early. Well, SantaCon started at 3PM!!
I made my own costume. I purchased a green shirt and leggings, and used a Dollar Store tree skirt and Dollar Store ornaments to decorate my shirt. I even added gifts. My purse for the night was made with a piece of extra ribbon, a Dollar Store stocking, and hot glue. I think I may use it until Christmas.
Huck’s costume was not homemade. He went the funny route.
That’s my Husband!!
I had to stop and buy some D batteries for my lights (Yes! D!! I was able to power the car, too!) I wasn’t excited about walking into CVS wearing my outfit and planned what I would say if anyone asked me about it before we got there.
Old Man: “Why are you dressed up?”
Me (With way to much enthusiasm) “I JUST REALLY LOVE CHRISTMAS!!”
Old man turns and looks other way.
Me: Laughing “ I’m just kidding. SantaCon”
Old Man says nothing!
Our Christmas Group!
The one thing I didn’t like about my outfit, I had to wrap the skirt around me 2 times and the thick material made my mid section look twice as big. Not the most figure flattering costume!!
Alex was wearing pants “That are smaller than mine!” He was probably right, too.
I lost a bunch of ornaments walking down Clematis. I even lost my star!!
All and all, it was a fun night! The worst/funniest part was the walk back to the car. We ended our night at Bradley’s, but our car was parked on the other side of Clematis. We had to walk over half a mile through Clematis on a Saturday night. We didn’t have our SantaCon group with us, so we just looked like freaks. And Huck was wearing a Bathrobe. We got some looks! A few people got it, but most just thought he was crazy. By the time we got to the parking deck, I was laughing so hard, I was crying.
Now, I’m off to continue working for free!! Maybe one day I’ll make money!!
