H is for Halloween: The A to Z Blogging Challenge Unsanctioned Imitation


Halloween is my favorite holiday ever. There is nothing that I don’t like about it. It’s spooky. I get to pretend to be whatever or whoever I can dream up. And there’s chocolate. It’s a scientific fact that chocolate can make anything better. It’s true. Next time you prepare liver for dinner, have some chocolate instead. There, isn’t that better? Case closed.

The boy is going to be Dan from Bakugan (an Anime character with a red ball that turns into a giant dragon and battles other giant creatures – I know, I don’t get it either), the girl is going to be Little Bo Peep (and HOLY CRAP, she is cute!), and I was going to be her sheep – a black sheep. So apropos. However, since my husband would rather pluck out his own eyeballs and lick them than stay home and hand out candy to the little goblins, he has claimed the right to be the sheep, and I am left without a costume.

Dan and Bo Peep (and some sheep)

So, whatever shall I be? The possibilities are endless. And now that I’m about 50 pounds lighter, those possibilities are bound to be at least slightly more on the skimpy side of scary than past Halloweens (maybe I should have made this a video blog so you could see the HUGE grin on my face right now). But no matter what I end up wearing, I know I’m going to look Spooktacular and THAT, my friends, is good enough for me.

Ok, maybe not as skimpy as I planned...maybe next year! Mwhaaaahahahaha!

Happy Hauntings, ghoul-friends!

The gypsy and the black sheep 🙂

  1. I love Halloween too! There are some years, I will make costumes…only the ambitious years. Last year was one and a few of us were characters from Alice in Wonderland….

    1. That sounds fantastic! I wish I had the skill and ambition to be able to make costumes. My MIL made the Bo Peep costume (it even has adorable little pantaloons) and we bought the other. My gypsy outfit is entirely from my own closet. Which, now that I think of it, is kinda scary.

      1. My skills go as far as it stays together…I alas am not a great seamstress…glue gun is my friend… I also cheated and used thrift store old prom dresses for mine and my daughter’s constumes (Alice and The Queen)

  2. Fun post. Glad to hear there are other Halloween lovers out there.:) We don’t have kids and I can’t talk the wife into dressing up as anything so we watch horror movies all day to celebrate. One of these years I’ll talk her into a marathon of the old Universal classics. lol

    1. That’s a great idea! My husband doesn’t enjoy it nearly as much as I do. He will wear a costume (his favorite is serial killer because they look like everyone else) to take the kids out begging for candy but only because he hates handing out the candy at home. If given the choice, I think he would gladly hang out with you and your wife and watch monster movies all day. If I had the choice, Halloween would be every day! 🙂
