Last Minute Halloween Costumes: Sometimes They Work, Sometimes They Don’t

A few years back, Diane decided she was going to be Marilyn Monroe for Halloween. Since I had no idea what I wanted to be, I figured I’d go as legendary Yankee and Marilyn love interest Joe DiMaggio, so we’d be a couple. But I’m a Mets fan, so I made a small adjustment. As you can see, it didn’t go so well.

This is what happens when you try to throw a costume together minutes before a party. You wind up wearing sweat pants and turning a legendary Yankee into a Met, and not a very athletic Met at that. And then if you’re me, the ridiculous way I look is only magnified by the fact that my wife makes an awesome Marilyn, if I may say so myself.

The obvious lessons I learned that year were… never to have a Yankee wear a Mets shirt… if you’re not an athlete, don’t play one at Halloween…and try to give a little thought to your costume before the day of the party!

As a matter of fact, you might want to plan a week out. There is nothing worse than getting to the costume shop and the only thing left is Barney and the Bill Clinton mask. So this is my friendly reminder to plan ahead. Don’t be Joe DiMaggio in sweat pants and a Mets shirt.
