A Puuurrrrfect Halloween


Happy Halloween! I've been fighting a cold on-and-off for the last couples weeks, but luckily I was well enough just in time to celebrate. My friend, Britt, and I always watch a movie and hand out candy. This year was my turn to pick the film and we ended up watching "The Princess and the Pirate". I love 1940s Bob Hope movies! It wasn't really a "Halloween" movie, but Britt was dressed as a pirate so we decided to just go with the pirate theme. She put a lot of work into her costume! I, on the other hand, picked out my outfit the night before from pieces in my closet. I think we both looked pretty good!

 I dressed up as a witches familiar. My costume was going to be 1910s inspired, but the hemline of the dress makes it look a bit more 1950s than intended. Oh well, I was quite pleased with the outfit regardless. The look was "black cat" inspired, but I played with it a fair amount. I didn't want solid black, so I paired my "web" dress with a sheer red skirt (worn as a dress) and a cute pair of tights. I tied my pearls to resemble a collar and leash.  

We went to pick up some coffee for the night, and stopped by the woods to take some photos. It was cold, but we had so much fun!

Britt's pirate costume:

"Walkies!" 





Of course every witch's familiar needs a witch:

Aggie was not amused. I thought she looked adorable, but she didn't seem to share my sentiment. Continuing my theme of last minute costumes, I made her hat on Halloween morning. It only took about 5 minutes and was all scrap material. I found it much too amusing. 


I hope everyone who celebrates had a great time yesterday. I can't wait to see everyone else's costumes!

That's All.

    1. Thanks :) Her eyes are definitely her most prominent feature. When she is in shadow, the eyes are sometimes all you can see! She can be kind of scary looking, but she is such a sweetheart.

    1. Haha, yes. The hat only lasted about 2 minutes until she realized what was going on. Then she knocked it off and refused to let me put it back on her! Oh well, it was cute while it lasted.
