Much like two little kids who enjoy procrastination, the husband and I are having a bit of a time deciding what we want to be for Halloween. We have a big fundraiser costume ball to go to on Saturday night and we've got it narrowed down to two options.

John Steed and Mrs. Emma Peel aka The Avengers

or Nick and Nora Charles


What say you, my devoted Cake Eater Readers?

I love Mrs. Peel, but I have to say I like the look of the Charles'.

Well, in my mind, there is nothing more charming than Mr Steed and nothing more sexy than Emma Peel (after all, that is why they called her that) 'M-Appeal'

The avengers win my vote but then I have always been a fan of the 2 Peel seasons that were created! :)

I vote Nick & Nora.

I always want Prince Charming and I to dress as Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, but he won't do it. Of course, I'm not sure a pregnant Hermione is quite the thing.

I'd think that John Steed and Mrs. Peel would work better as costume. You put Steed in bowler with a studded cane and Mrs Peel in black dress. As a costume I'd think it would work.

On the other paw, about the only way I could see to Nick and Nora Charles would be bring Asta to the party.

Two great sets of character in either case.

Steed & Peel. Make sure you wear one of those black leather outfits.

Steed & Peel. I'm also voting for black leather.

Difficult choice.
Emma was my childhood hero. And Steed drove a vintage Bentley.
Nick and Nora are easier, costume wise. And you can borrow Asta, to complete the look.

Difficult choice.

Love Nick and Nora. Her jewelry wins on its own.

And you must have Asta.

Or you could do Dick and Dora Chuck from Murder by Death ;)

Well, I'm for Steed & Peel, too. (Aahahahaha! I typed 'Steel & Peed' first.) But, you probably shouldn't take any advice from me. After all, Zig and I are going to our own Halloween soiree as Little Bo Peep and a sheepherder...complete with blow-up sheep.

Don't ask.

Nick and Nora. I adore Myrna Loy and William Powell. And you can slurp down a great number of cocktails and stay in character.

Steed & Peel, unless you intend to be drunk. In which case, the Charles'.
