Halloween is huge at our house. It is my sons favorite holiday since he was small. We have a garage full of props and decorations and this year he plans to make a "walk through" haunted area. He has also invited friends and after inviting his football player friend I saw dollar signs going off in my head. No doubt he will show up with others and my house will be filled with kids. I am glad for him though. Since I strayed onto this path Halloween has become even bigger and the energy around this time of year is always powerful for me and also for my son. My youngest seems to have an ability to tune into the things around him. We will no doubt do some ritual together after the guests have gone though I still have not found the right place in this house. I miss the last place as I had my own spot there, one that held my things and was filled with a special energy. But now I'm off topic. I don't know if I will dress up but my son wants me to. I suppose I could buy myself one of those nice cloaks$$$$ :rolleye: to wear while out on the deck but it is far too cold to do anything outside after September.

I just finished getting a few of our outdoor decorations up.  I mostly needed to see what we had so we could decide what we wanted to get to decorate for the party.  I put my old witches costume on my dress form along with my black cape.  I used the plastic darth vader helmet from my son's old costume as the head (I put it on backwards so it is just solid black, no detail) and put the hood of the cape over it.  That is currently sitting in my entry, but will be moved to the garage for the "haunted garage" thing.

I have another wire frame dress form that has an antique wedding dress on it.  I'm going to find a scary, ghostie kind of mask for that and put it in the garage for the party as well.

I still have to go and get the other pattern for my costume as well as the material.  With what I'm going to have to pay for all of that and what I just ordered (costumes for the boys as well as a few decorations), I will have spent way more than I really intended to.  :whistle:

Just make sure you place it away from any food or anything that can spill!  Antique dresses actually get quite valuable.

Oh, I'll make sure it is well out of the way of anything.  I'm even going to be setting it on a sheet so it doesn't pick up any dirt from the floor.

Ginj and I have finally settled on our costumes this year. As Ginger has bright red hair, and mine is dark, we're going to be Ginny Weasley and Harry Potter- 40 years later! I'm even going to make a pennant that says "Hogwarts class of 1973"

Ahhh I used to work at Agent Provocateur.  I was working there when that collection came out and I really wanted some of the stuff, but I have a knack for liking the 300-400 Euro stuff, so even with my discount it was pricey.

Haha it didn't last though.  I had standing conflicts of one of the girls there and since she'd been there longer I didn't get through my probation period.  In Germany it's easy to let someone go in their probation period (6 months, I did 5) but hard to fire someone after that so she stayed and I went. Also I don't think I meshed with the company.  They're good to work for (they give a lot of perks) and my boss and I got along great but it just didn't 'fit.' 

I did get a lot of free stockings though (most of which I ripped because they always got caught on the boxes), a free bra for joining the team and I got the matching garter belt and knickers with my Christmas bonus.
