Happy Halloween, Internet!


The costume report:

Noah: ghost
   This is your traditional sheet and white greasepaint ghostie.

Aviva: fairy
   snazzy clothes and artful wings by Mom (a casual observer would never guess that wings = clothes hangar + 2 fuzzy blue socks

Esther: no costume

Ben: some kind of ghoul
   Two points here:

  1. The term "undead" is now considered insulting. We prefer "alternative deathstyle".

  2. Food coloring as face makeup. Seems like a good idea. Is not.

Oh, Ben... Ben...

If you'd only asked me about the food coloring I could have told you all about its deceitful lures.

So, in the interest of preventing future small disasters, I will also mention that using red jello to color blonde hair? Not A Good Thing. Cross my heart. Unless you want to spend six months as a real strawberry blonde.

Not to mention the end result proves that the sink attempted suicide.

Groovy Halloween Report. Pics to follow? I will of course post some to holychao as soon as I get them off my phone :)

Thanks for the tip on the food coloring - what were the actual objective results? You imply "bad," but I want hard data, man!

peace

Ha...I have the pictures...and have given Ben access to them to post them...keep nagging, boys and ghouls...keep nagging! LOL... That food coloring was a sight to behold! Thank goodness the scrubbing it off worked some...

Oh, and Aviva's wings...pure genius!!! Esther gets big mom points for years to come!

Thanks for making my Halloween such an awesome one, Ben!

"Alternative deathstyle" is now the in-phrase, not "previously known as living" or "thresholders," or the recent symbol that meant screaming and pointing? I like to be sure.

The food coloring makes me laugh out loud. And I haven't even seen any pictures.
