Halloween 2010

 

Hello... how was your Halloween?

Mine was great...  My boyfriend and I had dinner with my family and then we got the front door all spooked out with scary music, a strobe light, candles and some carved pumpkins in preparation for the trick-or-treaters...  Speaking of pumpkins, I actually carved the two at my mother's house like I said I might (in this post) - just in time for Halloween night!  I think they came out great!

Oh yeah, and I finally broke the hippie costume trend!  I figured since the little kids coming to the door were so creeped out by the scary music (cackling witches, howling wolves, Halloween theme song, etc etc) that I might as well throw on an old grim reaper black hooded cape that I had for added terror.  My aunt had some glowing red glasses that I wore for an extra demonic touch....  Also, the change in costume afforded me the luxury of being a kid again... well, sort of....  My boyfriend and I took my little sister trick-or-treating and I pretended to be a kid and covered my face... HAHAHAHA... so I knocked on the neighborhood doors with my sister and we each got a nice bag of candy..HEHE :)

I hope everyone out there enjoyed their Halloween as much as I did!


This is the first pumpkin that I carved...

Here it is on display...


And here is the second..... obviously he had a little too much vodka and candy corns that night.... hehe...  By the way, I spray painted him because he came free from Home Depot and had an ugly face drawn on him with a sharpie, so I needed a clean slate... plus, I think it looks cool black because the orange interior pops more, and so do the guts... errr. vomit!  :)

By the way, that's a collector's doll that my aunt gave my sister a long time ago... my mom thought it's be a creepy touch...


LOL... that's me...


Trick-or-treating....


 Now you see me....


 Now you don't.... MU HAHAHAHAHA... just my red devil eyes.. hehe...

  1. That is awesome! Looks like you had tons of fun! I sat in my garage with my Tigger costume on. It kept me warm and the mosquitos away. The kids loved it and I danced around. In my hand is this little recorder that says some Tigger things! I love what you did! That black pumpkin throwing up was terrific!
