There are two truths in my life that I know will never change. One: I am tall. I am a 6 foot lady. I’m taller than my boyfriend and really I’m taller than everyone. We have had people point it out and while it doesn’t really matter to us, this year for Halloween we decided to take advantage of it.

The second truth is this: In my house, Halloween is bigger than Christmas. Literally thousands of people come to our house to see what we do for Halloween. Wearing great costumes goes hand and hand with being an official Halloween family. So, after searching this websites couple costumes I came across the Popeye and Olive Oyl pictures and knew I had found the perfect costume for us.

I spent a few months creating, searching, and putting these homemade Popeye and Olive Oyl costumes together. When we revealed them, everyone went crazy! Being the “real life” version of tall, lanky Olive Oyl was a real treat and my boyfriend enjoyed all the comments about his “Popeye” muscles. These costumes fit us to a tee and we plan on using them over and over again.
