100 Costume Ideas: Inspired by DragonCon 2016

It’s finally October!  Yay!  The countdown to Halloween has begun!

I love, love, love Halloween!!  My kids love, love, love Halloween!!

What do we love most about it?  Dressing up!!!

Although, so far this year, the kids  have changed their minds 152 times about what they will be and I haven’t decided either!

How about you guys?  What are you transforming into this year?

Need Some Inspo?

Typically, I scour the internet, and overdose on Pinterest, for costume ideas.  This year I didn’t have to do that.  The ideas just strolled right by…er, um…paraded right by…

Yep…Thanks to the 2016 DragonCon parade in Atlanta, I viewed thousands of costume ideas up close and personal!

If you have never been to DragonCon you are missing out.  It  has become one of my favorite weekends in Atlanta!  Thousands of people in AWESOME costumes?!? Yes, please!!

This was the first year we made it to the parade, and I CANNOT wait to do it again!  If you haven’t been…DO IT!  It was a little tricky to get there…the parade starts earlier than I would have liked, especially with kids in tow (you’re gonna wanna ride the MARTA if you ever get a chance to go), but totally worth setting the alarm for!

I thought it only fair to share some inspiration with you!  Without further ado…
