Travelocity Gnomes

Maybe we've been watching too much of The Amazing Race on TV. Their sponsor is Travelocity, and often the contestants have to find the Travelocity Gnome and bring it to the pit stop with them. Anyway, thought this would be a fun costume. (It also reminds me of my mission. People in Missouri have a strange affinity for gnomes as lawn ornaments! Can I get an amen?)

Here's our version

Here's Travelocity's version.

The Gnome men.

This was inbetween trick-or-treating and the trunk-or-treat. They were both hot. Note to self: Halloween in South Texas is a little bit warmer than Halloween in Northern Utah.

I actually did a bit of research on Gnome families. It turns out the female gnomes are quite homely and only wear grey or brown. So homely, if fact, that the females do not go out in public, only the males. And females start growing beards at around age 350. Hmmm...the guy's costumes were definitely cuter!
I accidentally got a big glob of hot glue on my hat, so I covered it with a picture of a toadstool that said Home Sweet Home. I crack myself up!


  1. Love the Halloween Costumes...way cute. I have always liked Gnomes, in fact I even remember watching a cartoon on Gnomes when I was younger. I know a Gnome is European, Germany or Sweeden or Norway and some how protect gardens or homes or something like that.. But yes remember them on many of the lawns in Missouri and Oklahoma. :)

  2. Great costumes! Okay, you are doing research on your costumes... you are one devoted Halloween participant. I think it is great. The toadstool was my fav part. Happy Halloween!!! ;o)
