So every year one of my best friends throws a big Halloween party. She is a quirky, fun, and whimsical spirit by nature, so it only make sense that Halloween is her holiday.
In 2009, she had a strict zombie theme. David and I originally had John Deere zombie (him) and 80′s zombie (me) ideas that just didn’t pan out with our makeup and unseasonably warm weather, so we went as just plain zombies:
Then last year, it was zombie or otherwise…just as long as you were dressed up (and those that didn’t dress up were penalized at the door with an application of fake blood to the face!). So I went as Medusa as my curly hair was getting longer and David went as a ghoul…
Oh my, we were each 20 lbs heavier last year!
Then this year, it was an anything goes party. However, the you-must-come-dressed rule was still in place and anyone not showing up in costume was forced to wear facial hair appliques – moustaches, sideburns, unibrows of all kinds. Oh she means business!
This year, David decided to stay back as crowds make him uncomfortable (a true introvert!) so I went as one of my favorite singers, Amy Winehouse:
Oh my, that’s some high hair!
No, that’s not a super sized bump-it in there, but a shower pouf! I learned it on You Tube when trying to figure out how to put my hair in a beehive, oh the things you can learn on that site!
We don’t get trick-or-treaters here because of the remoteness of where we live, so this party is the end all of Halloween for me. Hope you have a fun, safe night (and here’s to hoping that you have power!!)
