I love Halloween, dressing up is one of my fortes. Mr. VonShtupp, on the other hand, not only dislikes wearing a costume - he's also a big fuddy-duddy when it comes to any kind of social gathering. Fortunately, I didn't attend Halloween parties stag this year, as he agreed to attend our friend's 5th year anniversary party, which was a side note to their grandparent's 50th anniversary party (Halloween Weddings are fun)!
I decided that a couple's costume would help with my husband's lack of imagination. On Halloween day I pulled together items that I already had, purchased a few things and donned a vintage male mystique, calling myself: Captain Ahab.
I dug out my acrylic paints, a ringer t-shirt and went to town painting a sperm whale. Mr. V's costume was essentially a t-shirt, something I knew he'd be comfortable in, but something that tied us together. I love the shirt I painted for him, I hope he wears it again!
