When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam..

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Its one of my favourite times of year again..Halloween!!
I just love dressing up, watching the fireworks, carving pumpkins, making toffee apples, lighting the house with candles and putting on many repeats of scary films..

Even our dogs love Halloween, this is Wiggley shes a pug puppy/Bumble bee :)

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.

Will you be carving pumpkins this year?

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.



This random last image is my idea for my Halloween costume, as a kid of the 80's I loved the cartoon Thundercats.. not sure if this was just a UK cartoon. But this is Cheetara, she was awesome cartoon superhero!
Im not too keen on wearing an orange all in one (plus where would you get one in the middle of winter?) so instead ive opted for vest top and hot pants and dyed them orange. Ive also got yellow mustard tights and boxing lace up boots. Im planning on painting on the logo on the front. Then for the make up Im gonna use MAC orange make eye shadow and wet it to make it more like face paint, and paint on the cheetah spots on my arm.

Would love to hear what everyone is dressing up as for Halloween?

I broke a mirror this week.. for those who are superstitious (like me) thats 7 years bad luck..
not happy!!

Also Giveaway coming up on next post! ( my 50th post!) :)
