The Corner of Quirky & Kinky

If I had to pick my favorite holiday, it’s got to be Halloween. It, conveniently, happens during my favorite time of the year, too. I love making costumes and dressing up. And, of course, there’s the candy. Even more than the candy, I love roasted pumpkin seeds–and not those weird ones you can buy. Those are just all kinds of wrong.

As long as it’s not too cold, I love handing out candy and seeing the neighborhood kids in their costumes. It’s fun seeing what they come up with. My friend’s six-year old daughter, Freyja, decided that she wants to be Elton John this year. I can’t even begin to tell you how delightful I find that.

I’m kind of bummed that my kids and former daycare are too too big for trick-or-treating. But since costuming is my favorite part, here are a few of them I’ve made over the years.

      Did you notice that Blue has a ninja sword?

      We are gonna play Blues Clues. We are gonna play Blues Clues. We are gonna play Blues Clues, wonder where they are.

      The mama! Is the mama a clue? No, the mama is tired and bitchy. Back off, Steve.

    Isn’t it so gratifying to see the finished product on someone or yourself? Shopping for the fabric is great, too. I only wish that wallyworld didn’t reduce their bargain fabrics down to only a few bolts. I made a lot of costumes from their $1 yard stuff. Nice job on all the costumes!

      Thanks ! 😀 God, I love fabric shopping… so much. I haven’t done it much at all lately, though. But I really do love it when whatever I’ve made turns out. 🙂

    wait, there’s such a thing as too old to trick or treat? How unfair!

    Lovely costumes! Halloween is my favorite too for much the same reasons. The costumes are so much fun to make! Thank you for sharing yours.

      Thanks, Pansy! I used to work in the costume shop of a theatre when I was in college. That was pretty much the best. Wish I’d taken pictures though…
