One More Sleep To Dress Up Day

One more day to Halloween.

This is one of my favourite holidays of the year. While any day that allows you to get free candy is great, it’s not just the sugary treats that I love about Halloween.

I love dressing up and watching people’s reactions as I walk by in what can only be described as some fabulous Halloween costumes.

I have been lucky in my 35 years of dressing up - I have never had to wear a store-bought costume. Instead, either my incredibly talented aunt or mom has sewn up some fabulous outfits.

I have been DarkWing Duck (winning a contest for this simple costume) Maleficent from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty (complete with her evil crow sidekick), Merlin from Disney’s Sword in the Stone, a scarecrow, a mime, a clown, a ghost and this year’s wonderful creation - a fairy. Thank you, A. RT. A. R also made my son’s firefly costume, complete with blinking butt.

Come back later to see us in our wonderful costumes.

Happy Halloween everyone.

I too love dressing up and eating chocolate. This year for the first time ever I have bought a costume. I didn't have the time or the energy to make one but I didn't want to miss out in the festivities. In the past my mom has done a wonderful job of dressing me in super costumes including a mummy with wrap hanging off, a my favorite a Geisha girl with chopsticks and painted face. This year I am Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas, scary and fun! Happy Halloween Everyone
