Those are all great ideas!

I ended up finding this adorable bee costume on amazon that wasn't too expensive. It's black and yellow striped with black netting wings and a stringer at the butt. It's gathered at the bottom and comes just below my hips - very roomy for doing the moves. I'm wearing black stretchy pants and a yellow tee shirt underneath. The costume also has a bonnet cap that ties around the neck and has antennas. It's actually quite simple, but cute. The funny thing is that my DH is actually a beekeeper! He's going to show up at the beginning of class wearing his beekeeper outfit and is going to give my instructor some honeybears.

My Zumba class Halloween-style is tomorrow. I'll post a pic on my blog.

Not dressing up for Zumba class, but going out dancing for Halloween with a bunch of Zumba friends.

I'm going to be a flamenca dancer--ruffled polka-dotted skirt, ballet-neck top, gypsy earrings, a red flower in my hair and salsa shoes with fishnets. The only thing I didn't already have was the skirt--it is comfy and I'll really be able to dance. I ordered a Bal Togs flamenco dance practice skirt online--it's one of those 8-panel skirts that has great spin and twirl. :)

I bet that there are other ways that you could dress up as a dancer (salsa, ballet, ballroom, etc.) that would allow for good freedom of movement.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

We had a Zumba halloween event earlier in the week, and I just went simple. I bought an easy cat costume with a pair of ears, a collar, and a tail that I pinned onto my shorts. I was in all black, so it was kind of cute. I didn't do anything on my face because I sweat so much I didn't want it to be a mess. Some of the other "Zumba Friendly" costumes were devils, super-heroes, and one woman came in a night-gown and hair curlers (and she won a prize for it too! Good luck and have fun!

Hi! Our Zumba instructor announced that next week Thursday's class will celebrate Halloween, with special songs, prizes, etc. She said to wear a costume, or just wear orange and black.

I've never been very clever coming up with costume ideas, and this is even trickier because I have to be able to move around in it and not sweat to death!! Can't be skimpy 'cuz I'm not skinny! I'd hate to be boring and just wear an orange tee with black pants.

Any ideas??

Mary
