Happy Halloween!

Well, it's technically All Souls Day right now, but I just got home so it's still Halloween to me.

I had a whole awesome costume idea in my head for the past month. I worked on the skirt and the boots and the shrug and everything for the past week. When I put it all together, it looked REAL BAD. i mean, really bad. So I had to scrap my original idea of being Snot Girl, Superhero. So instead, I went as Your Fairy Snot Mother.

My Tissue Box Scepter

this is the tissue box scepter i made that i really love. it's a paper mache box that i used. i cut a slit at the top of the lid and filled the box with toilet paper squares (they fit perfectly!!). I puffed out a few at the top so it looks like a real tissue box. i decorated it with silver glitter stars and made hot glue gun drips for "snot".

My costume is kind of lame, but I literally threw it on at 9:30 tonight, after being exasperated by my other costume. It looked really bad and didn't fit right and I was already self conscious enough so I decided to put the sparkly dress on and call it a night.

We didn't stay out all that long, only about 2 hours. I hate to say this, but I think I'm outgrowing Halloween! ACK! I just didn't have a very good time. I think I'm better suited going to small Halloween parties instead of large clubs with drunken 18 year olds acting like assfaces. So next year, I hope I meet some people who are either hosting a party or that will come to a party that WE host.

Here's Phillip dressed as "Boogerman"...a character he dressed up as a kid. According to him, this outfit is pretty much what he wore 32 years ago! HA! Enjoy!

Here he is, zapping boogers out of Lola!


And, of course, here are photos of Lola before and after I tried putting stuff on her for the special occasion of Halloween. She wasn't having any of it!

Sorry they are kind of blurry. She was moving and I was laughing too hard. Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!!

You should totally submit that one of Lola in the cape and mask to Stuff On My Cat at stuffonmycat.com. I'll bet they would publish it.
