I can't wait for Halloween! Haha
Just wanted to shamefully plug my Blog entry on "The Halloween That Almost Wasn't" special, hehe:
I think my friends and I are going as all the fast food restaurant mascots.
my friends and I are going to be police/firefighter/swat team
Just realized I can't take my brother trick-or-treating; I don't get back from school until 8:30. Oh, well, I'm wearing my witch hat to school that day
Bought some new lights last night (LED jack-o'lanterns on a string) and was just at Ace's a little while ago buying a socket plug adaptor so I can plug 'em in to the porch light. Decorating today! Wooo hooo! So far I have a great spooky branch which I stripped of all leaves, the lights, some creepy cloth to drape from the porch overhang, pumpkins, a garland...not a lot. But I'm working on it. Hoping to be able to budget a large evil-pumpkin-headed scarecrow to sit on the front patio and leer at little kids...heh heh heh...I'll make it myself of course.
I specifically secured work off that night just to be able to hand out candy, which I haven't done in years (long story). Looking forward to it. There's hardly anything spooky around my current neighborhood and I'd love to change that!
This is the site of a guy I did some business with a couple years back. He builds most of his own stuff and sets up an amazing yard display outside Chicago:
Check out his pics and video from years past. Amazing work. He built a flying ghost rig for my workplace back when I was at Bookmans, and I built the ghost to fly on it (hm, I'll have to post a pic of that). No job too weird!
I'm trying to decide what to go as. We do this thing called a truck or treat at my church where a bunch of us park in a circle in a parking lot and hand out candy. It's supposed to be a safer alternative to trick or treating because it's a little more contained and parents can keep a better eye on their kids. It's a lot of fun.
Anyway a lot of us dress up our trunck and stuff so I was thinking that I might convert the trunk into a puppet theatre and go as a pupper to hand out candy. I'm just not sure what the puppet should be. If I can't decide I might just go as Miss Piggy again and bring Kermit along.
One of my best friends, and I might go out as Link Hogthrob, and Miss Piggy. She has the interest to check out my new beanies when I see her soon. She was psyched. <3
Just like GH, I'm gonna tag along my -mie dolly. <3
Also, Ellie (DramaQueenMokey), and I are planning to be Miss Piggy, and Johnny Fiama from TMWoO this Halloween. It was her suggestion for me to cross-dress as Mr. Fiama. *swoon*
Nice Link Beanie Linkie.
*hug* Thank voi, GH. ^.^
approves to bring !
I just had a thought. It would be so much fun to find a bunch of Muppet fans, rent a bus-like van, maybe get some magnetic letters and have everyone dress up like a different muppet, and then go...somewhere. That's kinda where my idea fizzles out
YES! I have all the pieces of my costume except I lost my eye patch But I can and will get a new 1
I'm thinking of dressing up to give out candy in my dorm...or just be weird and walk around campus like that XD
I don't know what though. My mom suggested punk rocker. But I was like...Wait, I kinda already dress like that. Then she said dye my hair green and purple.
Then go as a preppie conservative!
AMC's showing Stephen King movies tonight, right now it's Carrie. Just when you thought it was safe to go to the prom!
Oooo! Stephen King Drinking Game anybody?!
I don't want the hangover...
Well let's see though...
1. Rednecks, check
2. Religion portrayed as crazy, check
3. One dimensional bullies, check
4. Unexplained paranormal phenomenon, check
Though Carrie's ending isn't a let down, that's for sure!
Carrie was the first Stephen King book I read XD
The movie is kinda...meh
Agreed. I enjoyed the book more.
I haven't read the book, but I love the movie. It really captured the issue of bullying well.
The remake, now that was meh, lol.
