This Halloween was fantastic. Had a great time with my kids and got together latter on with some of her school friends and the parent. I watched my daughter go through an extreme costume transformation. On Friday, Emma was Tinkerbell.
Doesn’t she look angelic?
We somehow misplace the wings overnight (which we have located), but in the meantime on the hunt for a replacement, this is what she chose. A Vampire Princess. Admittedly, I wasn’t envisioning my oldest daughter to be OLD ENOUGH to want to be creepy, but sure enough she was, and she was truly ready to play the part. She’s not exposed to any Vampire stuff, so I was pretty surprised that this is what she wanted to be, but she did it well!
And play the part she did! She took this pretty seriously.
Gwen, on the other hand, held on to innocence nicely and made the perfect Snow White!
I’m tellin’ ya. She was scary.
Emma, in her glory!
Yeah, she was happy. She loved it. What can I say? My kid will definitely scare your kid! 🙂
Mobile Phone Shot of my makeup (I had no costume, just the makeup and crazy hair)
My dining room, shot 100% ambient light – it gives a VERY warm glow and the candlelight bounces off of the paint.
Bought these vintage puppies on ebay. I don’t know why I didn’t use the fifth candle holder.
This will be getting a re-do next year.
A gift from a friend (short an “s”, we know – but cute nonetheless!)
My bat has bling!
Lastely, Jimmy’s Cemetary
Pretty fierce, eh? Jimmy did a great job.
Things on the “ghost” front have been quite save one or two creepy instances. About 1:30 am about a week ago, Jimmy and I heard footsteps in our bedroom. A few nights ago I heard a distinct knocking as if someone were at the door, but nobody was there when I went to investigate . In the event you never read about our Ghost Story, make sure you check out the original HERE, and then an update HERE. You won’t want to miss those stories!
Hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween!
These are some great pictures! You and the kids look great. Where’s Jimmy’s costume 🙂 ?
Luke and Michael had a WICKED good time.
I love that skeleton candle – creepy.
I love the make-up and the crazy hair! You look awesome. And I’m kind of loving that your daughter chose to be a vampire…I think she’s primed and ready for the next Asbury Park Zombie Walk. 😉
Laura – you aren’t kidding! I think she’d gladly participate. Maybe next year!
Michelle – I’m glad they had a good time, that candle is supposed to ooze red wax out of the eyes but we didn’t let it burn long enough.
Paulina, of course, Jimmy didn’t wear one. Next year!
Your daughter is totally scaring the crap out of me! (Scary children are so much more scary than adults could ever be! If you don’t believe me, go watch pet cemetary!)
Love your Halloween decorations – great way to hide the fog machine. But how did you plug it in out there?
Mrs. Limestone – Thanks! Yes, I totally agree, kids dressed scary are totally scarier than grown-ups. We actually have outdoor outlets and extension cords running.
your pics are great, your daughters are adorable, love the vampire blood on your eldest and your house looks awesome…
Thanks Maggie. I still have a hard time looking at her in that photo of her hissing – it scares me!! 🙂
