My Ridiculous Obsession With...

This is another reason for my long absence! I read the Twilight series faster than Harry Potter (and I was pretty obsessed with those books too)! I'm even contemplating reading the series again. The movie comes out this Friday and I hope it is as good as the book (although it's never really as good as the book).

:: The Mummy and His CanCan ::

You guessed it! K's costume was strips of gauze, an old T-shirt and white torn sheets that were tea dyed and hung throughout the house for drying. Then on the night of Halloween he was transformed....ahhh!
Mine, a bit more complicated. The orange ruffled skirt was first purchased through ebay. When it arrived I thought it was a great piece but obliviously not the "complete" outfit. I went exploring again on ebay and fell in love with the pink and black dress. Especially the puff sleeves! When that arrived...i paired the two and was in ruffle heaven. The top hat was made for me last Christmas by Andy and the colors miraculously worked! A feather here, some vintage bling there and throw in some leg warmers and gloves...walla!

I'm a little displeased that we did not get good photos of our costumes during the whirlwind of activities! But we definitely put them to good use and had fun doing it!

Hope you all had a wonderful and safe Halloween!
