We hosted a halloween party. At a local park. It was awesome - an actual kangaroo (complete with joey) even showed up to disrupt an impromptu soccer game!
For the month prior, both kids had been dead set on dressing up as a mummy (Immy) and a spider-ghost (Cole). I tried to roll with the punches (and *not* stay up all night making costumes!!!) when they came to me on Friday with completely new ideas. And so I present to you Imogen the golden retriever (at least she's specific, ha!) and Cole, disguised as his very own pet black cat, Mahe!
And whilst my last minute costumes did the trick, they aren't particularly noteworthy. There was one that is worth mentioning though - in Immy's arms in a few of these, you can see a little white bundle - that's her beloved Ginger Kitten softy, donning an entirely Immy-made ghostie costume fashioned from muslin, tied on with hair bands and with slits for eye holes. I love that Ginger Kitten is such a part of our wee family that a costume for her goes without saying...even if she did rather resemble an unfortunate victim of the kkk!
Several ghosties were sacrificed and worn around on Cole's front!!!
In keeping with my usually dismal record of photographing event set-up, the meringue ghosties are the only photos of food I took...so I'm afraid you'll just have to use your imagination for the used bandaids, mummy dogs, cheese ball bats and other revoltingly delicious concoctions!
