I can’t believe that Halloween has come and gone already! It was a whirlwind weekend full of lots of fun (and naps!) and already I’m missing the red hair I rocked from Friday to Sunday.
I really wanted to be a villain this year, so I decided to go as Poison Ivy from the Batman Comics. I made a green dress and then pinned and sewed HUNDREDS of little fake ivy leaves all over it. It took a few evenings of movie watching to do it, but I loved it when it was done. Really comfy to wear too! My friend Julia went to the party as Puck Bunny in a Maple Leafs jersey. Too cute!
There were lots of great costumes, like these guys who went as Terry and Dean from Fubar. This may just be something that only Canadians get, but there were a big hit.
This costume may have been a highlight of my night. Anyone seen Office Space recently? He even got the mug and made a name tag!
What is better than hanging out with great friends, listening to the Monster Mash and dancing the night away?
The boyfriend decided to go as MacGruber from the SNL skits. We couldn’t find a khaki fishing vest, so I took a pair of men’s khaki cargos from the thift store and made them into a vest (Thanks for the idea, Mom!) And, no, that is not his real hair. It a wig that I cut butchered into a mullet.
Everyone wanted to cuddle and hold Whiskey. He even started to fall asleep in people’s arms. So cuddly.
Our hostess had out lots of great food, including this cake made to look like a cat litter pan (complete with tootsie roll cat poops). Looks disgusting, but it was actually really good. Don’t worry, it was a new litter pan, that she washed about a million times and lined with plastic and the kitty scoop was washed too.
We tried to convince some of the guys to try on a little Tinker Bell costume, but oddly there were no takers. I think he looks dashing as a fairy with a mullet, haha.
It was a really fun night with all the girls (and guys and pups too!) Why do we have to wait a full year to do Halloween over again?
Thankfully with the way that Halloween was on a weekend, it meant that Saturday night was another party. This time I headed back down to the city for an 80s video dance party. I put a little forethought into my costume and opted out of wearing heels for fear of suffering while dancing all night. I took a pair of old flats that were on their way out the door and covered them in green fabric scraps from the dress and added a few ivy leaves for decoration.
There were tons of great costumes at the video dance party too, including these cuties who went as leftovers! They didn’t need coats all night with those emergency blankets wrapped around them. They practically radiated heat.
And partied it up with a few droogs from A Clockwork Orange. Love the eye makeup!
