All the Frills: Halloween Round 2

Halloween may have been a couple of weeks ago, but I’m still revelling in it (my absolute favourite time of year). And here’s some photos of my second costume, worn to work (we hosted a Halloween event this year for grad students with kids) and then to take Eleanor out in the evening. I’m so happy with how this Maleficent costume came out – and also with the fact that I managed to pick up Eleanor after work, get her home and feed her dinner, tidy the house and feed the cats, get her and me into costumes, drive 15 minutes to a neighbourhood near us with incredible house decorations and like 800 kids out, walk around for 30 minutes, and get home, all between 5 and 8 pm. Halloween was seriously a well-oiled machine this year. Sure, I ate take out for dinner at 10 pm in a state of sheer exhaustion, but it was a well-oiled machine nonetheless.

Your Maleficent is so spot on, and it must be fun (though exhausting) to take Eleanor out trick or treating!

Loved the ways to get a man and the letter to the teenaged boy. too funny.
