So my amazing friend put this link up on her blog and being a true lover of Halloween, I had to participate. As a kid, Halloween was a time to dress up and be someone completely different, even if it were just for one day. We usually stayed up a little later, got our costumes the day of and got a ton of free candy. We usually drove to a nicer neighborhood, teamed up with our cousins and knocked on every door until our legs gave out. The downside? Mom collected our candy that night and put it in a plastic tupperware and we were not to eat the candy unless she handed it to us. Bummer. It was for our own good I guess. Last year when my baby was "trick or treating" Mechanic Hubby let her have any candy she could open up on her own. She learned how to open up candy quite quickly.
I really do love to be scared, even if it means sleeping with the lights on......for a few days. During my goth years (yes, I was that kid in high school) I was a lot braver and never turned away from the screen. Now, I get totally freaked. I don't get it. One of my favorite "Halloweeny" type movies isn't scary but after I watched it, I wanted to be Winona Ryder. Only the cool Winona, not the nerdy one. Ha.
The costume I am most proud of, and was the winner of the company costume contest (tongue twister) is this:
Yup, I was a pregnant skeleton. I used regular white craft paint for the shirt and I used an old t-shirt for the pants. I didn't want to ruin my sweats because I pretty much lived in them during my last trimester. But I won 200 bucks to Circuit City. Remember Circuit City???
As for my costume for this year? I've worked hard on it...she's a lovely pink pear shaped television character. I'm almost done with the entire ensemble.
Here's my kiddo modeling the Brobee hat I made for her.
Hooray for Halloween!
