Last week was a busy and fun one for me. My son and I made Halloween Cupcakes Thursday and then Friday we had Boo at the Zoo, where the kids dress up and collect treats from various vendors in a safe and fun setting. I dressed up too as a witch, a non scary witch that is…. hmpfff…. I love to do scary. AHHHHH but then Saturday night was MY NIGHT! I got to play dress up and attended an adults only Costume Party and had a blast as a very scary Banshee!

So speaking of costumes, my son who is four and a half wanted to be a black and white bunny rabbit much to my husbands dismay. He was hoping for something more male-ish like a cowboy or pirate. I figure who cares! If the kid wants to be a cuddly little rabbit then so be it. Of course the whole night everyone thought he was a cute little girl. Oh well. And wouldn’t you know it, I totally spaced out and forgot my camera. I am notoriously late and unorganized (I’m working on it) and I hate it because it causes me much distress and things like forgetting to bring the camera. We were in such a hurry to get out the door I even forgot to take pictures of Asher and his buddy with their cute costumes on. Hopefully, my friend Amelia’s pictures from her phone turn out nice and she shares them with me. At least this was kinda a trial run since it wasn’t actually Halloween. I have to say he was a cute bunny. I got these poor little pictures from my phone, which isn’t very good at photos but at least it’s better than nothing.
I’ve also been painting my yard sale furniture and it has taken me quite a while since I do a little here and a little there. I will have the bookcase finished today. I’ve also decided to change my wall colors in my studio to a happy orangey color called Golden Berry. I think it will liven the room up and lighten it up too from the depressing slate blue color it is now. I picked up some fun purple and orange twinkle lights that are for Halloween but I plan to hang them in my studio for some dazzle all year round. I can’t wait to get it all done and show it off to you all. But with a busy fall, it just takes time.
Ok, so here is my spooky “Banshee, female spirit” costume. I had so much fun creating this. I’ll show you more of how I did it later. Update: click here for my how to of Banshee costume and makeup.
