Costumes – Costumes & Some more Costumes -Purim 2014 Fun!

Boy do I love Purim and every aspect of it -  Megillah reading down to the clean up after the Seudah – really!,

But for some reason every year I have insomina the night before. Maybe it’s all the action and fun happening outside , the constant influx of “high -on-life” tzdakah collectors in my living room, the slight chaos of packing my Mishloach Manot and checking my list twice, or it could be my growing excitement for the fun day ahead – AND THE COSTUME I WILL WEAR!

I admit it. I am a Purim Geek. I love to dress up and I insist that my husband and child follow suit (no arguments please). It’s the once a year that the child in me just has to come out and play. Now  unfortunately, I do not really have too much time to devote to the prepping and configuring of my costume each year. Usually, I think of a theme about a week or two before, change it 300 times depending on what I can find to make or buy for the mishloach manot, and then I think again – take in consideration my husbands cooperativeness and then only do I come up with a plan. Lucky for me (and my husband) I am pretty inventive and have a houseful of  costume paraphernalia collected over the years when I was Drama Head in Camp and School. Not to mention last minute trips to costume closeout stores and walmart :)

But whatever I come up with – I wear with pride – and Yes some years have been more spectacular than others – but a blast was had each time.  I am putting pictures of me and my husband (we were from the 70′s – my husband did the wig only – he didn’t quite fit in the bell bottom jeans that I had originally planned – they were way way to short – my bad  ) and my daughter Tunie (she was our chick – she refused to wear her 70′s costume I had put together so this was a last minute  -hanging-in-her-closet-alternative).

The rest o the pics are of friends, family and random pics of great costumes I saw walking in the streets – Enjoy! – And I would love to see some of my kosherstreet.com fans Purim Pics – So please e-mail them (purim (at) kosherstreet.com ) and we will post them!

till next year…..
