Halloween


I hope everyone had a great Halloween! This month has been rather exhausting for me, but it was great to kick up my feet and spend a night with my bestie. We both dressed up to hand out candy, but it was pouring rain so we didn't get many kids. That didn't stand in the way of our fun though! We watched The Nightmare Before Christmas (Britt hadn't seen it before), ate candy and snacks, and took a bunch of photos. There was some video taken as well of an "epic battle" between us, but that is much too embarrassing to show to anyone. Ever.

We both made our costumes. Britt is dressed as "Link" from Legend of Zelda. She made her cape, tunic and matching hat with the help from my sewing machine. 

My costume was mainly an excuse for fun Halloween fabric. I'm a spider web! The top is a beautiful spider-web lace, and the skirt has a printed white web and glittery green spiders. Unfortunately the glittery green spiders got glittery green sparkles EVERYWHERE! But at least it looked good :)





The cute little black spider was handmade by a lady Britt works with.
 We named him Fred Astaire.



I took a short video of my costume so you can see it in motion. The best part of the top/skirt is twirling in it! It's so swishy!

That's All.
