Little Dead Riding Hood

Halloween Costume Try Out

I had to try on and photograph my Halloween costume a few weeks ago. It may change a tiny bit from this, but it'll give you an idea of what I'll be doing tonight.

By the way, the blood in this photo was photoshopped. Hopefully I can make my real/fake blood look just as cool.

I made up this costume from bits and pieces bought online or from my closet. The wig is from Ricky's. I have so much more fun coming up with costume elements individually than just buying a bag costume. Probably more expensive this way, but I feel more pride in the final product.

When I was a kid my mom always would sew my Halloween costumes. It was a special thing that I will never forget. She made me princess and fairy and angelc costumes - I always wanted to be something girly. I don't think that's changed much over the years.

What are you guys going to be for Halloween?

That picture is so scary! I dressed up as the economy, because what could be scarrier than that?

Ha! What does that look like? Do you have a picture?

And yes, I think that perhaps is the scariest costume possible.
