Happy Hallowe’en!

Hallowe'en 2014 1

We’re excited to spend our first Hallowe’en in our new place – there are tons of kids everywhere, so we went all out. They’re predicting rain for today so I’ve only put up half of our decorations for now. We can’t wait to have our own house with a big front yard that we can fill with all kinds of spooky spectacles.

I have some red lights to put in the chest cavity of Skully, our skeleton.

I’m especially pleased with the pumpkin this year – I got a ghost pumpkin, the white kind, and made it into the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, the evil villain from Ghostbusters, one of my favourite movies of all time.

And my fall leaf wreath is seasonally fitting as it decays.

Our Hallowe’en party isn’t until tomorrow, but the Pie STILL doesn’t have his costume ready (TSK!). I’m going as a gorgon, as the party is monster themed. Because I have short hair, I made a hat of snakes to look like my actual hair. I used Model Magic because it’s flexible and lightweight. I named myself Zola, so I could introduce myself as the Gorgon Zola (like the cheese! Get it? GET IT?)

This is WAYYYY less itchy than that horrid beard I wore last year (though I did win best costume because Wolverine is awesome).

A corgi. A small boy. A sense of adventure. Chaos ensues.

      1. Oooh, nice! One of the best things about having short hair is dressing like a dude on Hallowe’en. I like to alternate years being female and male … 🙂

      2. My sister’s hair was less than an inch long before she moved to Alaska. Now she’s growing her own hat. Short doesn’t suit me, I have a long face and look a bit too masculine. Still, one day I do want to shave it completely naked just to see what my head looks like under there. It’s mine – I want to know!
