fright night: the aftermath

No comments

Well, the good news is that the windows DID look cool with the lights shining behind them. But more about that later.

In my neighborhood, there are a ton of kids that go trick-or-treating on my street. This year, the Kid decided to go get some candy for himself too, but next year I think he’ll be on door duty all night. There were so many kids ringing my doorbell (many times multiple times in one visit, from the same kid!) that I could barely make it upstairs before having to head back down and answer for the next set of costumed little munchkins.

I got an invite to a costume party for Saturday night, though! And I even remedied my lack of Halloween costume participation!


As you can see, the windows did look pretty awesome once it got dark. The ghosty-lights also showed up better:



The Kid and his friends eventually did come back to help with the door, and then I bought pizza for the hard workers:IMG_3885


Later that night, I got a text from 1N asking if I had plans for Saturday, and to see if I’d want to go to a Halloween party. Well, turns out I didn’t and I sure would!

So I googled costumes, found some relating to sugar skulls and Day of the Dead, found myself a YouTube tutorial, and ended up with a pretty cool costume.

Here’s the before:



and here’s the after:


There is so much hairspray and backcombing in my hair that I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t get near an open flame. Or a comb.

It lasted most of the night pretty well, though by the time I got home some of the finer lines had smudged off.



I will honestly share with you that taking off all that makeup was a chore. Especially for a 2N that might have slightly overindulged in gaming beverages once I got home (yeah thanks Siv). If anyone is wondering, Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Remover Wipes are the bomb.


And the best part?

Waking up with the worst best morning after hair ever.



I think I’m ready for Halloween 2015. Bring it!
