Halloween is nearly upon us! While I adore this time of year, I have to admit that I’m a complete failure at the holiday. Well, except that one year when I was a Disco Witch. Thanks, Mama! I’d have to say that my biggest Halloween fail was the crayon year. My costume was cool, thanks again to my very crafty mother, except for the fact that I couldn’t bend my knees and had to be fully lifted up by my dad when I toppled over and rolled between the sidewalk and a parked car. Doh. So glad there weren’t cell phone cameras then! We’ll be headed to a cabin this year, but here are a few tidbits of inspiration if you’re planning on celebrating…
Now, here’s a costume that I could probably pull together! Plus a few others from comedian Jeff Wysaski who posted fake ads in a local party store. Hard to choose between this and Sexy Potato! Or perhaps one of these very punny options…
BTW…if you’re planning on carving a pumpkin, you’re lame. Crafting pumpkins is where it’s at. This word-search pumpkin is about my crafting speed. But all of you overachievers out there should consider whipping up a few pumpkin dioramas.
Trump as Famous Horror Movies is probably one of the creepiest things I’ve seen making the rounds lately…other than the thought of him actually becoming President, of course.
