A Few of My Favorite Things: Holidays

If I had to pick my favorite holiday, it’s got to be Halloween. It, conveniently, happens during my favorite time of the year, too. I love making costumes and dressing up. And, of course, there’s the candy. Even more than the candy, I love roasted pumpkin seeds–and not those weird ones you can buy. Those are just all kinds of wrong.

As long as it’s not too cold, I love handing out candy and seeing the neighborhood kids in their costumes. It’s fun seeing what they come up with. My friend’s six-year old daughter, Freyja, decided that she wants to be Elton John this year. I can’t even begin to tell you how delightful I find that.

I’m kind of bummed that my kids and former daycare are too too big for trick-or-treating. But since costuming is my favorite part, here are a few of them I’ve made over the years.

So…what’s your favorite holiday? Click on Jessica, GwenKellie, Kris, and Paige’s names to find out theirs. I feel like Jessica might celebrate Shark Week like it’s a holiday…

    1. Did you notice that Blue has a ninja sword?

      We are gonna play Blues Clues. We are gonna play Blues Clues. We are gonna play Blues Clues, wonder where they are.

      The mama! Is the mama a clue? No, the mama is tired and bitchy. Back off, Steve.


  1. Isn’t it so gratifying to see the finished product on someone or yourself? Shopping for the fabric is great, too. I only wish that wallyworld didn’t reduce their bargain fabrics down to only a few bolts. I made a lot of costumes from their $1 yard stuff. Nice job on all the costumes!

    1. Thanks, Pansy! I used to work in the costume shop of a theatre when I was in college. That was pretty much the best. Wish I’d taken pictures though…
