J and I are Halloween people. Everyone has a favorite holiday, Halloween is ours. I dress up every year. This year J went as a pirate and I was his busty pirate wench, Elizabeth from the game Bioshock Infinite.
This year we had a murder mystery.
After work J and I went to my Parent's house to help pass out candy. Very few children come to our house, and we wanted to show my parents our awesome Halloween costumes.
My parents are also Halloween people. Mom borrowed my Civil War Widow dress.
My parents made up this fun game for the Trick-or-Treaters. When someone rang the door bell we (J and I) would answer the door, then Mom would come out from around the corner and surprise them. She would offer them tricks or treats. They could try her trick "brains" (marshmallow jello salad) or have a more conventional treat, mini candy bar. Then we would ask them if they wanted to stay for dinner. It was so fun to see the kid's reactions to her. Oddly enough, the younger kids were more willing to try the brains while the older ones kept their distance.
We had a wonderful Halloween this year. I would like to continue learning how to sew and make costumes. My next sewing project is a Steampunk dress. Corsets, and bustles, and gears, oh my.
