Dressing Up

Do you dress up for Halloween? While I love to get the kids all decked out, I usually don't go all out on a costume for myself.  I do like to do something though.  I will admit to being a cat many many times.  I simply wear black and a "cat ear" headband.  I like it because I feel dressed up without feeling silly.  This year however I had another idea.  I am being "the other mother" from the movie Coraline.

Have you seen Coraline? Great show.  My kids love it and I love that its one of the few that my husband and I can actually sit through.  If you are looking for a good, family friendly Halloween movie, I would recommend it.  Creepy without scaring your children to death! :)

Anyway, back to the other mother.  This is what I was going for.

Its the perfect character because, other then the button eyes, I can basically be myself.  And its creepy!  So this is what I came up with.

I apologize for the totally dorky picture, but whats a girl to do?

Haha.. too funny huh!?!  I love it. And it case you are wondering, yes I can see.  I wouldn't recommend driving with them on or anything, but I can definitely wear them trick-or-treating with the kids.  I actually made them with Palmer's clay.  They have a rim, like you'd do with glasses, so that I can blink, and I can see out of the little thread holes.  I attached them to each other and my head with stretchy clear beading string. 

So are you dressing up this year? Do tell!
