Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

Well Halloween is officially over. Our party was a ton of fun once again. Much smaller this year than last but oh well. To those of you who did come, we really appreciate your participation and hope you had as wonderful of a time as we did. We had a blast dressing up, eating way too much food and dancing night away. Mike and I dressed up like Beetlejuice and Lydia. I was sewing up to the last minute and praying my dress would hold through the night. Mike's costume was a thrift store suit and after painting two stripes with fabric paint, I realized it would take me forever to stripe this suit, so I resorted to duct tape and spray paint, and it worked beautifully. Believe it or not, Mike's wig was three times this size when I got it, not so authentic. And it looked like a star fish. My hair worked out all except my bangs, I ran out of time and the spiky bang extension wasn't cooperating and I was already 5 minutes late to my own party. So I chucked them. Mike was my best accessory anyway. No one knew who I was until I was standing next to him, but I expected that much. I have to say, doing the thriller in this get up was tough, I was having flashbacks to my wedding day trying to do the electric slide. All in all it was worth it! Being able to dance, laugh and act nutty at least once a year...? I'm down with that!
