Happy Halloween

I'm going all out this year to celebrate Halloween. It was my friend Lakeland Jo's favourite "holiday". She loved being in the States around this time because of all the fun and the "stuff" she could take back  for her annual party. It's her funeral today too. How very apt.

On Saturday night I went to a fab Halloween party. The hosts' brother was there; he's in a band as well as being a DJ, so he had his karaoke stuff (complete with giant screen) on hand. I had recently come across a fun psychedelic cat suit which looked really 60's or 70's, depending on how you accessorized it. One giant blonde bubble wig later and Voila! Disco diva.


Truth be told, I was wearing so much  make-up (compared to what I usually sport) that I looked more like a Drag Queen than a Disco Queen, but hey!

And my lovely little date, the Sith Lord. Lordy but that costume took an age to make. Someone kick me next year when I mention going to look for a halloween pattern. Please!

So Happy Halloween y'all, and to my lovely Jo, - farewell! xx

  4. Hi All,

    My name is Emily and I’m looking for American women (26-55yrs) to take part in a market research meeting on Tuesday 1st or Wednesday 2nd November. It will take no more than an hour of your time and is paying £75. The research questions will be based on the 5 senses. An example question would be: try this cookie and tell us what the taste and texture of the cookie reminds you of? Does it evoke any memories? All in all: it’s one of the more fun market research opportunities to engage in, it’s something out of the ordinary to do during the week and it’s a very easy way to make a little extra money.

    Those interested are required to email me a photo of themselves with their contact number, age and their availability over Tues and Weds this week.

    Please do not hesitate to email me on emily@etcasting.com to discuss.

    Best wishes,
    Emily

  5. "Truth be told, I was wearing so much make-up (compared to what I usually sport) that I looked more like a Drag Queen than a Disco Queen." That is so hilarious.

    On a side note, it's good to see that many people actually do stuff for Halloween. I've personally never done anything. On Halloween Halloween weekend I'm usually home just doing the usual--homework. That's the story of my life. But I think I might just do something next year. I've been inspired. Thanks!

  7. Great costumes! It's amazing how complicated a 'simple' costume can be isn't it?

    I decided to make DS a magician's cape this year. I was partway done when we lost power, so I finshed the dratted thing by hand! He wore it to go trick or treating tonight with his sister and dad - and the neighbors told us trick or treating was postponed until next Saturday. 10 minutes after they came home the power went back on!
