Halloween Is Coming

It's the most wonderful time of the year!! I love when the holidays kick into gear--and I mean all of the Fall and Winter holidays--Halloween included. I've always loved Halloween! I don't like masks though--I think a kid costume is much cuter without a mask they can put on-I'm more of a "add a little make up to the face" rather than cover it with a mask.

My favorite costume is one that my sister created for her son Jake. He wanted to be Jak from the PS2 games Jak and Daxter--and he looked amazing! In case you can't tell--those things on the side of his head are Jak's ears--and they look just like them--what a great costume! What made it amazing--she made it all--well--organized it all. Sweatshirt and pants are the foundation--then she just layered on top of that. So creative!

There is an Online Halloween Costume Contest, and I would love to join! I do need to find a good costume for me this year. I've never really dressed up myself--just my kids--but it might be kind of fun to see if there is a great adult costume over at Star Costumes. I know my sister is going to dress up in a blow up Chef outfit since she's married to a Chef--unfortunately for me, there isn't a fun costume for a Hotel Manager! Sorry, dear!

That is so awesome! I love it :) It's amazing what you can do with the stuff you find around the house, often without sewing a single piece of anything.

As always natural stuff prevails over artificial ones. The best things in life are the simple things... Just look at that picture and tell me: isn't it adorable?
