Ryan (my boyfriend) and I dressed in a Homemade Drew Carey and Mimi Couple Costume. Ryan is an easy Drew. Just a shirt, glasses and tie. Me on the other hand…well I took forever. Lots of makeup as you can tell, some ugly clothes, a bad wig and some tacky jewelry and hair clips and there was Mimi. As far as the idea, I can’t even remember where I thought about it or saw it. It just passed through my mind.
Side Note: We entered a costume contest along with about 25+ other people/couples. Throughout the costume rounds, 25 went down to 10, then 10 to 5, then 5 to 3. We were in every round and made it to the Top 3! Our competition was a guy dressed up as Achmed the dead terrorist and some 55+ year old woman who was dressed in the world’s sluttiest Ladybug costume. Guess who won? Yup, you guessed it, WE DID! $100 Gift Cert, which we promptly spent on our food and on shots for all of our biggest and loudest supporters in the contest.
Everyone wanted their pictures with us too! We felt like celebrities! It was amazing! “CLEVELAND ROCKS!!!”
