Dressing Up in Costumes from BuyCostumes.com

I’m a compensated BuyCostumes.com ambassador.

I AM SO RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED! I haven’t been THIS excited about a Halloween costume in, oh, FOREVER! I love NCIS. I love Abby and Gibbs and DiNozzo and Duckie and McGee and Palmer and GOSH. ALL OF THEM.

As soon as I opened the box from BuyCostumes.com and saw my Abby Costume, I just about LOST MY MIND. EEEEK!! This is HAPPENING, people!

NCIS Abby costume jacket and collarI became EVEN MORE excited while shopping for accessories to go with the NCIS Abby costume jacket and collar. Check out all the cool things I’ve found so far! (Each image below is clickable!) Would it be weird to wear this costume while watching NCIS from now on, channeling Abby in spirit? I mean, life IS better in costume, amirite?

In sticking with the NCIS theme, I simply HAD to pick up the Gibbs costume, too. I’m not sure if my husband will want to wear it, or if my son will choose to, since he’s Mr. Crankypants-I’m-too-old-for-Halloween lately. Or, at least, he thought so until I dressed him up, and then LOOK! Look at his smiling face!

Baby V is loving every second of being Sofia the First. It was a tough choice between being Sofia or Doc McStuffins for Halloween, but ultimately, she loves stealing her sister’s Sofia costume, so we went with that one. (Even though, the idea of her and I both wearing lab coats and walking around on Halloween.. gah!) But really, who could resist the happiness on her face?
