Nothing really makes me more happy than the weeks leading up to Halloween. Seeing decorations in neighbors windows showcasing their little one’s art projects, community Halloween parades, don’t forget the candy, and even more so, I LOVE LOVE LOVE carving pumpkins.
(My Very First Halloween… not my very first intro to sweets!)
Now, don’t get too excited, Pumpkin carving will come later the week, but for now I have to focus on something that is dear to my heart! Most people in my life are all too aware that I take my costumes very seriously!! I’ve spent weeks and even months debating, researching, and concocting the perfect costume!
Here I present to you the beginnings of my costume fascination. I’m the little Jack-O-Lantern with the wig. Out of respect for my siblings I won’t name names on the rest of the crew!! Below I finally grew into the Dracula!
My mom was the super seamstress when we were kids sewing up all of our costumes and my dad was the highly revered Halloween Make-Up Artist, and thus both have inspired me to follow suit when I moved away!
By now you are probably thinking “Stop reminiscing and get to the point”, so I will. As I began my costume research this year, I started noticing some disturbing costume trends. Granted I know that part of Halloween is to be a little disturbing, but what I am about to showcase to you is a parental trend that is both wildly disturbing… and a whole lot of hilarious!!! I would also like to take this moment to thank my fantastic parents for being normal!!
I present to you my TOP 10 PICKS for the WORST thing you can do to your child on Halloween…
(I would like to highlight the “Utter System”)
(where’s the butter sauce?)
(Baby with Heart Burn)
(I find this one hard with Thanks Giving around the corner…)
(Really folks, a Taco?)
(Gimme back that Filet O Fish…)
(ummm sir, you have some Cheerios on your face)
Well I hope I have managed to entertain some of you during your workday. Please please send me a link to any Halloween pictures you feel should have graced the Halloween Hilarity charts, there just might be some amendments made after the Marine Corps Marathon.
Have a great day!
