Happy Halloween


A little strange to you Northern Hemispherers, but if you read my last post, you know: it's warm here now 22 °C (72 F)  This year the kids wanted to be Sally from Tim Burton's "Nightmare before Christmas" and the Plague Ghost with a steampunkish face mask. So "in between" all else that I have going on at the moment, I managed to whip up the leather (okay imitation-leather) mask and the dress and after work today, facepaint Sally (without time for a proper dinner of course) to go trick or treating with the kids and get sweets and lollies instead. Oh but it is fun though, seeing them proud of their dress-ups and stuff. It's good to be a creative mum :)

Those costumes are fantastic! Makes you proud, doesn't see them so happy?!
I'll have to show Maggie your Sally (that's what Maggie will be again tonight...she is just so excited to still fit in the costume....haha!)

...and that mask is awesome! Great job, Joyce!
Boy, if we were neighbors, we could really create all kinds of fun-filled trouble...heehee!
