So, my children finally gave in to my pleas to dress back up in their Halloween costumes so I could get a few pictures since they had taken their costumes to a friend’s house on Halloween and changed out of them before I picked them up. My eldest didn’t want to get all gored-up for a zombie (sigh; I really wanted to do zombie make up. How much fun would that have been? Especially with the awesomely awesome fake blood!) so he’s a pirate. With a bloody slash across his cheek. And he is using the fake blood as hair gel – it nicely dyes the hair and washes out super easily. The daughter is also a pirate. And the middle son is Harry Dresden, wizard.
Funny story: I ordered a pentacle for him from New Jersey a week before Halloween and it was scheduled to arrive on the 27th – since we’re in North Carolina. Easy peasy, right? On the 30th I looked on line to see where the silly thing was and wouldn’t you know? It had been sent from Charlotte (three hours away from us) to Massachusetts on the 28th. Needless to say, it arrived on the 1st and we were forced to improvise Halloween night with a metal circle, some embroidery floss and silver spray paint.
