Dead Sexy, That's Me!

So...today we were supposed to wear our Halloween costumes to work.  I, um, hadn't planned on dressing up for Halloween since Jay and I are not doing the Halloween thing this year (we're going to see Wicked instead).  I didn't want to spend any money on a costume that I was only going to wear at work, so I came up with the scariest thing I could think of...

...the "Damn Bears Got In The Dumpsters Again" outfit (also known as the "Hoss Rustlin' " outfit).  Now, if  you haven't read my blogs about VW Bear or Hoss Rustlin', you may not understand quite how sexy this outfit is.  First, you throw on a pair of flannel jammie bottoms (today's were light blue with Tinkerbell, but usually it's my maroon/grey plaid ones) and match them up with whichever long sleeved shirt is handy.  Then step into the first pair of boots you can find - in this case, my obnoxious blue boots (God, I love those boots), without bothering to fix the pants.  Top off the whole thing with bed-head and you're well on your way to being as Dead Sexy as I was today.  Livery wear at its finest!

'Course I had to explain my costume over and over again, but it was a good excuse to wear my flannel jammies to work.

Forgot to mention the silk long unders.

Well, I suppose that it might have caused a stir if you showed up in your "Zombie Killer" outfit complete with loaded weapons. On another note, I used to work with someone who didn't bother waiting for Halloween to wear her flannel camo pattern PJs to work. She tried denying it until I saw the exact same set at Walmart.

K, that is priceless! Where can I get me some flannel camo jammies? I would have loved to go in my "Zombie Killer" outfit, but you're right, it would have caused a stir and possibly losing my job. The owner of the company is a Brit. They don't really like guns much. Guess that means they get to be Zombie food first :)

I don't know where you can get camo flannel PJs this very moment since I don't regularly shop for that sort of thing; however, the last time I saw them was at a Walmart. You could also check Pajamagram.com if you don't mind paying through the nose plus shipping and handling. Another alternative would probably be Cabela's or Bass Pro Shop.
