25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress

Tour of the Washington DC Monuments at Night

The elliptical pool surrounded by fountains, in the center of the WWII Memorial.


The Freedon Wall in the WWII Memorial. The wall contains 4,048 gold stars.
Each star represents 100 Americans who died in the war.
In front of the wall lies the message "Here we mark the price of freedom".


The Washington Monument. (It sure was foggy that night.)


Fifty flags, one to represent each state, surround the monument.


The Lincoln Memorial. Counting from the very bottom at the Reflecting Pool to the very top, there are 98 steps. If you go to this, you might be tempted to not walk up all of steps it takes to get inside. But it is worth seeing up close, not to mention the beautiful architecture and murals inside the memorial.
