Had a terrific turnout this year, lots of kids & families having a good scare & taking lots of pictures with J. in his scarecrow costume. Only a couple of kids got truly scared, and most of them calmed down after getting an apology & loads of candy. :)
I tried something new this year and did a 'shaved' pumpkin:
yard got some new decorations too, although since it rained right up
till last night, we had to scurry and put everything out today.
The lawn is mid-redo so it's just dirt right now, which worked out great for looking more like a spooky graveyard.
The kid got pressed into service as a model for the chalk outline.
And this guy ditched the 'World's Most Difficult Puzzle' he normally is working on in favor of a Tarot reading...
the kid did her 'Weeping Angel' thing with great success, fooled a lot
of people into thinking she was yard art & scared them!
wasn't happy with the wig at all and the dress needed to be darker--the
makeup also, but I ran out of time. Also the cool fangs we got her
wouldn't stay in. My favorite part of the costume are the claws, which
looked freakin' great.
