A "Guess Who" Halloween

image taken from here
For those of you who have never played the game, you are missing out and should read no further (haha kidding), but as you can see Lee & I were characters from the Guess Who game board.  He picked the name Alfred, but looks nothing like the character Alfred in the picture above (fifth from the left in the back row).  He had to have a "sweet" name, so he's named Alfred but is more of a mixture of Alex and Tom. And of course I was Maria.

Now, for those of you that did play you must remember always hoping and praying that your opponent was a girl for the easy win - am I right?  Hmmm 19 men to 5 ladies, why they didn't place more women on the board to even out the playing field we will never know?

Both shirts, fabric paint, lee's mustache, the green fabric for my hat, string, and tag board cost roughly $20.  All of it was found at Wal-Mart. It didn't take very long to throw it all together either. It's so fun to see everyone's inner creativity shine on the 31st of October. Until next year, with love,  Maria & Alfred.

*UPDATE// We ended up winning $100 from an online DIY halloween costume contest that I entered us in for the fun of it. The instructions and post I wrote to win can be found here!
