We LOVE Halloween in this house! I have been a Halloweenie my whole life. Every year, coming up with an unusual costume or make-up, making the kid’s costumes and later in life, having the best time dressing up and turning our apartment into a mini-spooky house! Tonight was no exception! We’ve spent the last two days, digging out some special effects we’ve accumulated over the years and setting up our scenario.
There’s a ghoul hanging on the outside of the door, that should be a warning to all of what to expect if they should dare to enter! I took before and after photos of my husband;
The lights were all out, there was a strobe light on the floor, a fantastically horrific soundtrack screeching and howling in the background, candles lit everywhere, candy in a basket, and we were ready for the kids to arrive. Peter spent the morning creating this fabulous Jack O’ Lantern.
He also put together a fiendish looking but kindly gent named George. George doesn’t look so well, his complexion is quite gray, it’s possible he’s dead – he never says a word!
This little old crone sat off to the side observing all the comings and goings; We must have had at least 7 Frozen Princesses, a couple of super heroes, a banana and a pirate. Wednesday Adams and a couple of other TV characters appeared at the door; Some of them would not cross the threshold and for the life of me I can’t imagine why there were afraid!
