Halloween!

We had a wonderful Halloween. It's always such a whirlwind, trying to make all of the things and doo all ofthe things and watch all of the movies. I think I was much more relaxed this year, but this past week did get nutty. I was sort of terrible at managing all of my pre party time, but the important things got done. Like the boys' costumes!

✨Doctor Who ✨ #tobyisalwaysincostume #doctorwho #Halloweencostume

Toby's was the 10th Doctor! Everything was store-bought so that was easy. (He's already worn the heck out of that suit) I made him a Tardis trick-or-treat box becuase I had a really hard time not making him anything.) I found the idea online but theirs used rigid felt which my craft store was all out of, so I covered a small box with layers of regular felt inside and out instead. I wanted it to be sturdy because they always get a serious haul and I'm sure he's going to want to keep it after Halloween. I'm happy to report it totally held up! It may have helped some people ID him too, even though he did get a few "are you Harry Potter?" questions. He wanted me to cut his hair to look more like David Tennant's and was so happy with it being "up" all day that he wanted it styled again on Saturday. He's gonna be an insufferable teenager.

Gideon's was a skeleton knight!  It was totally his idea, and I left the construction up to him and Mat. We started with a store-bought costume and Mat built fun foam armor to wear over it. Gideon had the idea to make it look like he had been run through with a sword, so we cut one of their old toy foam swords in half and attached it in the front and the back. After everything was put together, shaped with heat and fitted, Mat sealed the foam with white glue and water and then used rub n' buff to give it a metallic shine. I used acrylic paint to age and rust everything and I added blood splatters and drips to the sword. Finally, we aged the actual costume with the airbrush on the "chain mail" parts and I tore and painted the hem to look like mud and blood splatters. We bought skeleton gloves which I had to take in to fit properly and then I painted them too.

I finally caved and bought a good set of face paints and had the wherewithal to try them out for the first time the *night before* Halloween. I learned a LOT about using them and I'm so glad I did it, because we had to get up at 5 the next morning and do it again for school. I used Wolfe paints with a sealer on top and I was totally impressed with how well it wore -- he made it through the entire day of school PLUS trick or treating without touch ups! Really impressive. He actually had a skull half mask that looked great on, but he couldn't wear it to school and his make up help up so well, we didn't use it for trick or treating. This was the first year he had friends who opted to not dress up and he was a bit disappointed with the too cool for Halloween energy, but he was happy with his costume and all he got a lot of great compliments. We went trick or treating with his 2 besties (one now attends a different school) that were totally dressed up all day and are just as goofy as he is and that helped a ton.

Trick or treating was fun! I never know why parents don't want to go, we always have such a great night. Our neighborhood is pretty amazing on Halloween. Most people sit outside to hand out candy and within 20 minutes, they usually have overflowing bags. There's a yearly block party nearby that everyone winds up at and a lot of adults get dressed up. I was a last minute Bride with pleated leggings, my grey biker jacket, and a silver spray streaked updo. Mat wore a mask and cloak and we went with a friend who was an amazing No Face from Spirited Away. He even had chocolate coins he handed out -- he stayed quiet and freaked a LOT of people out.

If you need us, call Mat's phone 👹💀🌚👻 Friends

We had an amazing weekend. It was full of fun and friends and too much food and I only wish I had time to do much much more. The 30th marked 10 years of me in my house and the 31st marked 10 years of kissing Mat. I'm sad it's already over, but today is a day of remembrance and I think it might be appropriate to remember happy things as well as sad ones.

Thanks SO MUCH to everyone for keeping up with my month of pictures! It was a really inspiring challenge for me, because I loosened up a bit knowing there wasn't really much pressure to do anything outstanding any given day. I think too much about what to post waaay too often. Also, LJ is not dead! Pshaw to the naysayers! I love you all, for reals.

Our Jack-O-Lanterns, Gideon's on the left, mine and Emily's :)


So busy! Dresden Dolls were amazing, Nightmare in 3-D was amazing (Gid sat holding his too-big glasses on in awe the whole time), Mat's pumpkin muffins were amazing, the weather is amazing! Tonight we trick or treat and since the in-laws are excited to sit w/ Gid and puppy, we may very well wind up at Dracula's Ball. Hope to see friends there! Right now I have to clean up and settle costumes and run around like mad.



Have a safe and Happy Halloween friends!
