Halloween Spooktacular

As you can see, we went all out this Halloween. Friday afternoon I went over to Venus' house and hooked up with her and her sister, Diana. Who knew that Diana was the Martha Stewart of Halloween? Not me! She brought over enough costumes to rival Party City and had all kinds of choices for me to pick from. And she makes all of them herself. I waffled between being a Vampire Queen or a Pirate. Since it was 80 degrees, I went with the cooler, short-dress Pirate option.

Venus made an adorable Little Bo Peep. And her dog, Tooney, was her sheep. How cute is this!? All hand-made by Diana - genius! Diana was a Elvira-like Mistress of the Night with spiders in her hair and long black finger-nails. We decided that we looked too good to not be admired so the three of us went to Patrizio's in Highland Park Village for a cocktail.

Turns out that many men have a Little Bo Peep fantasy because Venus was getting fawned over like you would not believe. Of course, this is how men react to her in every day life, so I don't know why I am surprised it was any different in a costume... A HP cop who was patrolling the shopping center even came up to us and said, "Do you want me to patrol your house tonight to make sure you ladies are safe? You know I've always had a fantasy about Little Bo Peep." To which Venus retorts, "Well, let me tell you about my cop fantasy..." Made the guy (who was all of 25) blush 6 shades of red. It was a hoot.

We had Jessica Simpson and Tomy Romo with his busted up hand.

Cenote dressed up like a White Trash guy. This is his costume every year. It gives him an excuse to walk around with a beer while the kids trick-or-treat. And he talks all crazy and freaks the kids out because they can't really tell if it's a costume or not. He loves it.
Randy just had to take the political route. He was Karl Marx promoting Socialism.

Diana's piste resistance this year was ET's costume. Obi Won Kenobi from Star Wars. I was ooh'ing and aah'ing over it and asked her if she'd made it from a pattern. She said she took a pair of his pajama's and used those as a guide. Seriously? That is impressive.

Our gang all met up at Venus and Cenote's house for pizza and trick-or-treating. The kids ran wild and had a great time. The kids got 5 pounds of candy and had fun sorting it all out and counting how many pieces they got. Another fun Halloween!
