Whatever it is, I hope to get in the spirit this weekend when I take in the beautiful sites of the country, visit a notable haunted house attraction (Easter State Penitentiary in Philly), and hopefully eat lots of pumpkin stuff.

I become a mother hen around Halloween–I want to take care of everyone. Don’t have a costume? I’ll make it my job to help you figure it out. Need your makeup done? Come to me. Missing a crucial aspect of your costume? I’ll find it for you. My favorite project was turning my mother into a punk.

As for me, I created a Dia de los Muertos sugar skull costume. I sewed flowers to a bustier, tied skulls to a parasol, crafted a top hat out of felt, and spent a profuse amount of time doing my makeup. (more…)
