Halloween is almost here -- naturally our celebrations are a few days early. We have "trunk or treat" at our church tonight. Basically, if you're unfamiliar, people gather in the parking-lot and hand out treats from the backs of their cars. Many even decorate to add a special bit of fun to the evening. The first year, we decorated the 'trunk' or our minivan to look like a cave -- complete with flying bats and cobwebs. (GGG)
But this is a busy season in our home. Every year, the kids decide what they want to be and the planning begins. My oldest (now 20) long ago took over the costume-making. She loves to sew -- me, not so much. And she's fantastic at DIY'ing old clothes into something fun to wear.
This year we have a hobo; a hippie; the phantom of the opera; and two steampunk gals. What's that? Yeah, it'd be easier to show than explain. But think of Victorian England, add a bit of sci-fi and some funky gadgets. ;)
My costume? I'm going low-key this time around. Note the orange and black striped bat socks. :D
Whatever your plans this weekend -- have fun and stay safe.
