If You’re Feelin’ Really Gutsy

November 7, 2011 · 69 comments

…go to a bar in your Halloween Part II costume when it’s not Halloween.

…especially if that costume is everyone’s favorite bathing utensil (only one person guessed correctly on Friday).

But only do it if you’ve got the support of your good friend, the bubble bath.

You may make a fabulous new gay best friend.

And you might become buddies with the live 80’s band, The Deloreans.

Two different people may come ask you if you’re about to get married the next day. Apparently, a purple loofah girl and white balloon-clad lady in a bar together on a Friday night screams “soon-to-be-wed-lesbian-couple.”

Lesson learned: Going to a bar in costume is way more interesting when you’re the only one dressed up. As a loofah and a bubble bath.


I highly recommend making your friend dress as the bubble bath so you can throw her in your trunk and make her squat in the penalty box for a 20 minute drive.

…But then, you’ll have to serve as drink assistance all night.

And you’ll need to pop her balloons when she gets cranky about not being able to move, walk through narrow hallways, or put her arms down.

It’ll totally be worth it for the resulting pictures.

This is fantastic! I tried to organize a non-holiday costume party/pub crawl once, and apparently everyone else was lame, because I was the only one willing to dress up on an “off night” haha! Love your guts girl!

That was hilarious. A loofah!? How creative are you!! For Halloween, I went as a lazy-ass personal trainer/yoga teacher (aka, stayed in my pajamas.) I think you were creative enough for the both of us. On an off topic, how do you write in your photos that way? May I ask what program it is?

Bahhh, that is the best costume ever. I am not surprised AT ALL that it brought you so many bar adventures. I am loving your new GBF. It is seriously my life dream to have an awesome gay bff a la Will & Grace (this has actually gotten me into trouble because I exchanged numbers and info with a guy I met who I was POSITIVE was gay, but then it turned out he was straight and a creepy stalker). Anyway, that guy looks like perfect GBF material. I would be all over that.
You are quite the costume inspirer. I think I already know what I am going to be next year ;) just kiddin’. Seriously awesome costume though, I am impressed.

AHHH what an awesome halloween costume! I love looking at creative ideas that haven’t been overdone 9320485436790 times. My two roommates and I were going to be rock paper and scissors but didn’t have the time to make the DIY costume. Maybe next year :) Instead I was a snowflake and ironically, it snowed that night hahaha

One time I was corn on the cob for Halloween and I looked so much like the bubble bath.

Loofah is rocking. I love the costume. Please tell me you have yellow rain boots on with it.

Shoving your friend in the backseat (Bubbles Bethany) must run in the genes. It reminded me of when I had to shove 7 month along, pregnant Cindy (pregnant with her 4th baby) into the backseat of my car to drive you to the hospital when your finger was smashed in the sliding glass door.

Holy Crap! Hilarious! Especially the part about making your friend squat in the penalty box for the 20 minute ride! My Mom dressed me as a jelly bean jar one year (big plastic bag that comforters come in filled with balloons). I had the same situation in the car but she had me squat in the FRONT SEAT! WTH?
