Halloween is such a fun family time. We had a great October going to a haunted corn maze, a scary zombie invasion simulation called Fear the Sliding Dead, and a comic convention. The kids costumes turned out even better than I had hoped. Luke wanted to be Mad Max from The Road Warrior. Todd made this happen by thrifting almost every evening until he had a full pleather outfit to customize. Luke's uncle 3D printed his prop gun and shoulder pad. A one point the rivet gun was out, spray paint, glue, you name it! Eve was pretty undecided, changing her mind daily until we started to browse the second hand shops. She spotted the moons and stars on the rack and we knew this was the one. It fit like it was handmade just for her. Someone made this little witches costume with incredible skill and attention to detail. For $14.99 it was ours and the dress enjoyed another Halloween on a second excited little girl. Hooray for thrift treasure! I grabbed up some witchy boots for $1.49 and a $2 hat which I did some customization on so that it lived up to all the glamor of the dress. She named her witch character Starlight. I think it was both the kids favourite year for costumes. Here's a look at what they were so excited about this Halloween!
It was a Halloween to remember. We ran out of candy and enjoyed how great it is to live in an old neighbourhood where kids still trick or treat door to door. I blasted 3 hours worth of halloween tunes and teased kids like the weird old woman I hope to be when I grow up. Hope your October was filled with lots of thrills & spooky fun!
