Okay, you know it had to be done. Just a quick roundup of some of my favorite Halloween patterns!
Okay, I’m sorry, but this photo makes my day. I bet I could eradicate any bad mood by bringing this post up at looking at this kid in this hair hat. I’m cracking up!
Maybe a little witch doll? Purl Soho can hook you up. My friend Liz from my knit group just finished one of these and it was SO cute! (I did have to ask her why she was making a miniature version of me…)
I’m going to work dressed as a late 50’s/ early 60’s secretary, since I already have the outfit and glasses. I’m practicing my beehive french roll, too! Not many people downtown dress up for Halloween, but a little vintage look is enough to be festive without going full-on costume. I’m also a big fan of just wearing clip-in devil horns, weird color contacts, or those stick-on vampire teeth. Something small that can be removed for meetings, if needed. I can take off my glasses and just look like I shop at Banana Republic this year. Here’s a photo of my makeup and outfit test-run:
What you can’t see: knee-length tweed skirt, sensible shoes, white kid gloves, skinny belt, and my winged eyeliner! So much fun! Now to get the hair in shape. I don’t know how those women did it!
