We won Best In Show for our Halloween Costumes

Halloween Costumes 2008As part of our annual Halloween tradition, we come up with a "family theme" for our costumes. This year we went as the Characters from Clue. We entered in to two local Halloween costume contests and in both we won first place for the group category. In addition, we won a special trophy for "Best In Show".

Take a look at our costumes for this year and years past


  1. Hey! You guys look awesome! I am in need of a colonel mustard costume! If you have any ideas or know of any places where I could purchase a costume like the one in this picture please email me at!

  2. Al, all the costumes were custom made by my wife. She based the shirt pattern on a basic button down men's shirt, but made with a thicker mustard-colored material. She also added details like the buttoned pockets, embroidered name tag, epaulets, buttons, etc. The pants were also a custom design with shorter legs and elastic gathering. I found the knee-high socks, the shoes, the pith helmet and the beard to add to the ensemble. Also, the monocle was originally a pair of gold spectacles, cut in half and then with an added gold chain.
