what better way to kick off the month of costumes, than to watch a campy, classic kid's movie? i love popeye. it's charming, clever, and stands the test of time( in my humble opinion). in fact, i find it even more endearing as an adult.
honestly these costumes really rock the house. all the girls wear these grey-ed out hues, layers of tiered ruffles, stompin' boots, funny hats, and polka dots. the costume designer was givin' me serious comme des garcons looks. i love me some downtrodden ragamuffin chic-ha!
i pitched the idea of a "popeye and olive oyl" halloween costume to my slumbering husband this morning...
his incredulous reply: "ummmm, isn't popeye a really short, buff, bald dude?" fair enough.
