Here's the deal - I don't really like Halloween. When I was a kid, my family didn't go trick or treating, and I don't remember ever dressing up as anything (although there is some evidence that it happened in preschool).
Anyway, this year, John and I helped out at our church harvest party again, but didn't really dress up. I just wore jeans and a red/white striped shirt and told people I was "Where's Waldo." Kind of like this.
Afterwards, I went over to a costume party that some of my friends were hosting, and felt like I needed to try a little harder, but I had limited time and resources. I've seen a few "Rosie the Riveter" costume ideas on Pinterest (here and here), and that seemed pretty easy without having to buy anything else. Not everyone knew who I was, but I think it was a pretty decent last-minute costume idea.
I just want to add that I would be the worst riveter ever. When John and I went to Washington DC a few years ago, the American History museum had this little station where you could practice using the rivet gun. I couldn't even do it. So shameful.

Anyway, I hope you have a safe and happy day. I may be a Halloween Grinch and turn my porch light off to avoid the trick-or-treaters. We'll see how I'm feeling.
