Happy almost Halloween! To celebrate, I’m participating along with over 100 other blogs in a blog hop! Talk about spooktacular! There’s giveaways and wicked fun at each stop so be sure to keep reading to find out what I’m giving away and to hop to the rest of the blogs!


Since costumes are a big part of Halloween, I asked a few of my characters what they were dressing up as, and here’s what they had to say…

Luke Watters and Sela Sullivan from Kissing the Maid of Honor:

“Luke is going to be bacon and I’m going to be a chocolate bar,” Sela said.
Luke grinned. “And at the end of the night we’re going to ea–”

Shane Sullivan and Kagan Owens from Her Accidental Boyfriend:

“We’re dressing as James Bond and his Bond girl,” Shane said. “I think I’m gonna get lucky.”
“All you have to do is smile and you get lucky,” Kagan chimed in.

Troy Streiber and Erin Watters from Wild About Her Wingman:

“I’m dressing as a bun maker,” Troy said.
“And I’m going to be a bun in the oven.” Erin was positively glowing as she said this. Hmm…

Zane Hollander and Sophie Birch from Keeping Mr. Right Now:

“We’re doing the devil and angel thing,” Zane said, putting his arm around Sophie.
“Only I’m the devil and he’s my angel,” Sophie added with a sly smile.
“I can’t wait for you to be bad,” Zane added with a definite sparkle in his amazing blue eyes.

Hugh Langston and Tess Damon from Veiled Target:

“We’re going to be pirates,” Tess said excitedly. “I haven’t dressed up since I was little.”
“Aaarrgghh. And ye better be prepared to be boarded,” Hugh said.
“What is it they say? Save a ship. Ride a pirate.” Tess grinned at this.
So did Hugh.

<sigh> I just love all these characters.

    My favorite costumes were, I was a bunny and my hubby was a carrot. Those were fun to make! My next favorite was Mickey and Minnie. Before we had kids we used to have Halloween parties with our friends and we dressed up every year.

    • Robin Bielman

      Hi Sue! We used to have Halloween parties all the time, too! Then I burned out. I think I could open a Halloween store with all the decorations I have. LOL Thanks for sharing your favorite costumes! (I uh, never made our costumes. I can barely sew a button back on something.)

  2. Anne

    A mouse when I was a child and the costume was handed down to my younger brother and sister. I’m a subscriber: acm05atjuno.com.

  3. Amber Hughes

    One of my favorite costumes was back in 2007 when I was dressed up as a Pageant woman and my mom made me a sash that said
    “Miss Behaving” Hehe! :-)

    One of my favorite costumes was when my son dressed up as Waldo and I had a shirt that said I found Waldo and we went to Mickey’s Not Very Scary Halloween Party with them! We got more compliments on our duo than I ever got for anything else! He made a great Waldo too…

    Now… would you share your favorite costume too?
    Thanks, Robin!

    • Robin Bielman

      That is adorable, Linda! And clever! Love it.

      Let’s see, my favorite costume? That’s a tough one. I’m going to go with Ginger and the Skipper from Gilligan’s Island. My hubby and I won Best Costume for that. No one recognized me! I bought a sequined gown at a thrift store, dyed my hair red (with temporary color), and wore a ton of make-up. :)

    • Robin Bielman

      Elena, my hubby and I dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf one year – only I was the wolf and he was Red. LOL We won Best Costume then, too! I’m thinking you made a much cuter Red Riding Hood than he did. We got the most laughs, that’s for sure!

  5. Lisa Walker

    My favorite costume was the year I dressed as Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas and my husband was Jack!
    I signed up for your newsletter. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  6. Misha Estrada

    My favorite costume was a witch. My dad made my costume at his factory and my entire face was painted dark green.

  7. Hi Robin! :D

    One of my childhood favorites was a witch costume my mom sewed for me. I wore it two years in a row. :) But my favorites as an adult have been ones I’ve helped my husband put together. I’ve sewed a straight jacket, custom patches onto a Ghostbusters jumpsuit, hand-dyed a turtleneck and colored his face with orange washable markers for an Oompa-Loompa… I also made a custom Link (from the Legend of Zelda video games) costume for our son. It’s always loads of work and stress but the results always look great.

    • Robin Bielman

      Hi Rhianna! Oh my gosh, are you talented! And all those costumes sound fantastic! I’m so not creative when it comes to design and sewing. Are you making anything this year?

  8. Kim Pinch

    My favorite was when I dressed up as Frankenstein as a kid. I loved making my face and hands all green, not sure my mom liked the mess I left.

    • Robin Bielman

      Hi Kim! I love every single “monster” costume! I bet you made an adorable Frankenstein. My hubby and I were werewolves one year, and at the time my brother wanted to get into movie make-up, so he made us werewolves with hair right on our faces and hands. No one knew it was us! It took a long time and looked really great, but once was a enough for something like that. LOL

    • Robin

      Aww! I don’t remember a lot of my costumes when I was little. I’ll have to ask my mom. I know I went trick or treating!

  9. Krysta B.

    I once dressed up as a traffic accident victim, and I was in the car and I scared a fellow driver, they literally followed me until I stopped at McD’s I felt bad for her but accomplished :)


  10. Danie

    My favorite costume was a few years ago when I dressed up as a peacock. I made a blue shiny dress with a tutu skirt and made some really pretty feathers. I won the work costume contest. :)

  11. Danie

    My favorite costume was when I dressed up as a peacock. I made a blue shiny dress with a tutu. I also made really pretty feathers. I won the work contest. :)

    • Robin

      Hi Heather! I think home-made costumes are some of the very best. When my son was little my friend and neighbor made him an Elmo costume and we went to the zoo for a Halloween thing and the kids there thought my little guy was really Elmo! So I’m thinking you made an awesome clown! :)

  12. Christine

    My favourite costumes were ones my sister and brother-in-law did – He dressed up as a baker and she was an oven, with a picture of a bun on the front (you guessed it, they were announcing her pregnancy!)

  13. Barrie

    When I was in highschool, a friend and I dressed up as simese twins, back to back. We won a prize and had a blast!

    • Robin

      That rocks, Barrie! Of course the first thing to pop into my head, though, is what happens if you uh, have to use the restroom?

    • Robin

      Hi Daniel! Thanks so much for hopping by!! Hmm… I do like Batman, but I’m a Marvel girl at heart. Did you wear it as a kid or adult or both? ;)

  14. Kim M

    I SERIOUSLY LOVE your characters!!! They all put a smile on my face. Thanks for bringing them back.

    I don’t like Halloween. No one yell at me. But I think my favorite costume as a child was that of a witch. My mom and I both dressed up as witches and we both had the brooms. I had bad teeth and she had the bad teeth and big weird nose.

    And of course, I’m already a newsletter subscriber.

    • Robin

      I SERIOUSLY LOVE YOU, KIM! Thanks so much for saying you love my characters. You’ve put a huge smile on my face now! :-D

      I think I knew you didn’t like Halloween. That’s okay, we’ll let it slide. Love that you dressed up to match your mom when you were little! Have you dressed up with your daughter?

  15. Brandi

    My favorite costume is my Minnie Mouse costume I wore last year! I went to my aunts to pass out candy & it was cute seeing all the kids that came to the door get excited at my minnie outfit & they told me I was a pretty Minnie. =)

    Oh. i’m already a newsletter subscriber. =)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Take care & I hope you have a great week! =)

    • Robin

      Hi Brandi! Aw, I love that the kids complimented you! I love seeing all the kids dressed up, too. Are you dressing up this year and handing out candy again? This may be the first year on Halloween we head out instead of staying in on the actual day since it’s a Friday. I’ll miss seeing all the little kids, but we’re thinking of going out ourselves all dressed up!

      Have a great rest of the week and Happy Halloween!

  16. megan tilley

    Last year while working at a nursing home we were allowed to dress up. I dressed up as wonderwoman! It was so much fun and my costume was amazing and homemade! All of the elderly residents truly enjoyed it!

    • Robin

      “Wonder Woman!” Okay, just had to get that out. Don’t know why. What a wonderful treat for all the elderly residents!! I wish I could see pictures of all you guys who have commented. Such great costumes! And you’re another talented seamstress making your own costume! Are you dressing up this year?

  17. Anita H

    I haven’t done a lot of costumes but one of my favorites was my tiger costume when I was younger with the cute tail and all. I think it’s the one I remember the most too.

  18. Ada

    lol Save a ship, ride a Pirate? Hmm, need to find me a Captain Hook to say that too haha My favorite costume was the ever scary bunny. Except when I fell on the sidewalk, skinned my knee and ruined it :( But it was still my favorite costume. And I’m subscribed already to your newsletter!!

    • Robin

      Hi Ada! Thank you for commenting on my pirate joke! I’m glad someone liked it. And good luck with Captain Hook! ;-) A scary bunny? Ack! I’m not sure I’d like that. Scary clowns freak me out and I’m picturing a scary bunny face looking similar. Sorry about your knee, but I know you’re a trooper so I bet the night was still fun!

  19. I’ve made my kids Sleeping Beauty, Jessie (Toy Story), Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Maul costumes–those were my favorites. This year we’re trying the “zipper face” one for my son, since he’s a senior now (yikes!) and gets to dress up. Dress rehearsal is tonight for his Boy Scout meeting–wish me luck!

    • Robin

      Hi Becky! Good luck tonight!! And oh my gosh, once again I’m in awe of all you talented gals who make costumes! I’m not sure who “zipper face” is, but I bet it’s going to be awesome! (I was Sleeping Beauty a few years ago – loved it!)

    • Robin

      Hi Joseph! Thank so much for stopping by! Oh my gosh, a zombie security guard rocks! I’ve never been a zombie, but totally want to one year. And I want to do one of those zombie crawls! Have you ever done that?

  20. Shari

    It has been years since we went to a Halloween party. The lasst one we went to we went as the King and Queen of Hearts. I made it look like a playing card and then we wore crowns.

  21. BookAttict

    One year I got dressed up as a brick…my boyfriend at the time wore white coveralls, a white cap and a trowel….he was a brick-layer.

    Happy Halloween and thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  22. Ally Swanson

    My favorite costume I have worn for Halloween was when I dressed up as Miss America. I had a beautiful evening gown, sash, crown, flowers, etc. it was so much fun dressing up and doing the special wave.

  23. melanie J

    I dressed as Marilyn Monroe one year.. I wish I could find pics – it was awesome!

    Thanks for the giveaway – and I am also on the newsletter list!

  24. A couple years ago, I was a zombie. My boyfriend sculpts and makes masks. So he made a plaster cast of my face and custom designed a zombie mask. I looked awesome! He also made lots of wounds to put on me, too. :-D
