S’more Please - Behind The Awkwardness

“My mother forced us to wear a giant HOME-MADE s’more costume to our family’s halloween party. No one was happy about it. Except her. I got stuck being the marshmallow made of an appetizing hula-hoop and sheet.”

    For someone who wasn’t happy with her costume, you sure are rockin’ it! Love that hat!

  2. Madeline says:

    At least it’s creative.

  3. Joss says:

    This is exactly why one has 4 children, just wouldn’t be the sane with three!

  4. alisotom says:

    it coulda been worse—mom could have made you dress up like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich…

  5. Peabody says:

    Better than being just plain “board” at Halloween.

  6. diane says:

    i hope she only made u wear this one year, not year after year… lol

    now that might be a bit cruel! lol

  7. vjhr says:

    Are you kidding? This is fantastic.

  8. Sean says:

    Did they have to stand in that order through out the whole party?

  9. jaclyn says:

    I love this. I’m going to do this to my kids when they are teenagers then maybe it will all be worth it.

  10. heatherd says:

    At least I am not stuck in the middle of this family.

  11. Y’know, I rather like this one. I’m glad I’m not the one wearing any of that, but I rather like it all the same. 🙂

  12. NKL says:

    I love you, Mom! Thanks for the memories.

  13. Lori says:

    You’re killing me, Smalls

  14. Megan says:

    I kinda like it! I saw a family on Halloween all dressed in big fluffy dog costumes. Mom, Dad, all the 4 kids. Now THAT was awkward!!

  15. KathyUpNorth says:

    Absolutey cool costume! I went as a S’More by myself a couple years ago. It was kind of a sandwich-board thing. This beats that hands down. Hang out with your family. You’ll be talking about this for years to come!

  16. Lynn says:

    It may be awkward, but what a great mom.

  17. abba21 says:

    If your mom had gone by the way I make s’mores, you would have been on fire. So, this is better.

  18. Teresa Sadowski says:

    Wicked cool Mom!

  19. Katie says:

    AWESOME costumes!

  20. Tim O. says:

    I love s’mores! What a delicious ensemble! The downside to this costume is that they have to stay side-by-side to maintain effectiveness.

    • Clint says:

      You just nailed the problem with this whole concept…as soon as you go your separate ways at the party, you’re just some dope dressed up as a…”wait, what are you supposed to be? A couple of brown dominoes? A box? Oh, graham crackers. Okay. I get it.”

    • Tom T. says:

      When I looked at the picture, I initially thought that the swing-set behind them was a metal frame that rode on the costume and held them all together.

  21. Nancy says:

    What a great idea for a group costume…but I admit it’s a bit awkward for a teenager to have to do this with mom and dad.

  22. Noodengr says:

    Ok you were a teen girl and everything is emabareassing at that age. But I think that group costume ideas are fun and always add to a party. Give your Mom and pat on the back ( or is it chocolate bar?) for the creative costume. She would get my vote for best costume.

    Sweetie (I think it fits the situation, heh) this is the best proof of Maternal Power I have ever seen. I once saw a Halloween combostume that involved a syringe and a butt. But this four part emsemble is just the right balance of Sharpie ingenuity, mallow-warts, and a generous sprinkle of matrishame.


  24. Silvia says:

    That’s funny. 🙂 Did you have to walk around the party smooshed together the whole time so everyone could tell what you were? heehee

  25. Tina says:

    Aww…for some reason I think this is super cute 🙂

  26. Samantha Pabon says:

    Kari!! This. is. pure. BEAUTY! I’m so proud to be your friend.

  27. Lance says:

    That’s pretty creative!

    I imagine it was still embarrassing to a teen though….

  28. Lori says:

    Your mom is awesome! I hope you’re grateful. 🙂

  29. Loozrboy says:

    What is she complaining about? That costume is awesome, and the marshmallow is obviously the best part.

  30. JEN says:

    Sweet! I love smores!!!

  31. Amy says:

    Looks like you guys were headed to Lets Make a Deal.

    • Modine says:

      That’s what I was thinking too. They should be leaping up and down to see what jay is bringing down the aisle.

  32. LKT says:

    If this is the worst thing she has done to you, consider yourself lucky! 🙂 She could have taken some clippers to your head and posted it on this website! 😛

  33. Amanda says:

    The white cap makes the outfit.

  34. pattylynn says:

    At least you got the bodacious hat.

  35. Ally says:

    Slightly awkward, but totally adorable. Let’s face it, there have been MUCH worse family costumes seen on here.

  37. JC says:

    The family that sticks together…

  38. chrisd says:

    Good old mom! I give her a lot of credit for trying…


  39. Kari says:

    Two of my friends went as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich one year. Expect they were wearing whole flat boxes, and they were stuck together facing each other. They walked sideways all night, and watching them get in and out of the van was painful to watch. Good times.

  40. Bridget says:

    That is actually a really cute idea, but I can see how teenagers would not like it! 🙂
