Halloween is here and I am excited to announce my second year as a member of the Netflix Stream Team!  In our home, we don’t have cable, but we do have Roku and watch Netflix on a regular basis.  The kids have their own station and then Frank and I have ours.  There is so much to enjoy on Netflix – television shows, movies and more.

One of Frank and my favorite shows is “Orange is the New Black.”  I love that show!  In fact, I can’t wait until the next season is available for us to watch.   A crime she committed in her youthful past sends Piper Chapman (Schilling) to a women’s prison, where she trades her comfortable New York life for one of unexpected camaraderie and conflict in an eccentric group of fellow inmates.  It’s a really good show!

After waking up with crazy hair one morning, Frank suggested a Halloween costume idea to me.  It was to dress up as Nicky Nicols from “Orange is the New Black.”  I loved the idea!  So we ordered the costume and I tried it on and wah lah!  I was Nicky Nicols from “Orange is the New Black.”

I even tried out the look for another character from “Orange is the New Black” – Alex Vause.  I put on our daughter’s wig from her costume and a pair of my glasses.  It was perfect!  I didn’t wear this costume, but thought it would be a fun addition to this post. 

Have you seen “Orange is the New Black?”  What did you dress up as for Halloween?

    I have not seen this show before, but it sounds like a very good show to watch! I will have to make time to watch it. I like your Halloween costume, Frank sure suggested a good one for you. I did not dress up for Halloween. I handed out candy to the neighbor kids though!
