I love Halloween. Halloween is my most favoritest holiday ever. Halloween rules so much that it makes me talk like a toddler (see previous sent. ).
My house was on the news for several years because I would decorate it so much. I would get (at least) 50 bags of the fake cobwebs and do the roof, the plants, the sides of the house, the wrought iron fence, the grass, everything. It was awesome. Unfortunately, the gardeners requested that I don’t do it this year
But to make up for it, I am turning a forensics tournament into a big, fat Halloween party (hey, debate tournaments don’t have to boring, ya know). We are going to decorate the place where all the kids hang out, decorate where all the judges/ coaches hang out, and serve all kinds of “spooky” food. The point of this is: thank you for that link! It gave me so many ideas!
The “brain” shrimp dip- does anyone have an idea for something that might work that isn’t so… fishy? Maybe a cheese? Tomato? Anything? Most people aren’t big on the seafood, so an alternative would be awesome.
My other thing: I’m trying to find a costume. I have had a great idea for the last few years, but I am not entirely sure how to execute it. What I am thinking is: get a standard pilgrim outfit from the Halloween store, find someone who can sew to “skank it up” some (maybe lift the front hem to above the knee, make a low cut neckline that I can wear a corset under, etc), then sew a bright, red A on the front. This is a great idea in theory, but I simply am not sure how to get it done.
Other options are the old standards: a nun (‘cuz it’s ME and I mean, c’mon :D), a devil (my name is Angelique. . . my nickname is Angel), or I saw a cute lil’ red riding hood costume here. The only issue with the LRRH costume is that it is a bit expensive for a cheapie costume from the net that probably wont even fit right.
Wow this post was long and babbly
