Halloween!

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:


The 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...


And the kid did her 'Weeping Angel' thing with great success, fooled a lot of people into thinking she was yard art & scared them!



I 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.
