The 2012 Debate

No, I'm not talking about these debates. Nope, not at all. I am talking about something much more important. Much more entertaining. And so much more fun...

The 2012 Costume Debate

On Redds list:
  • Russian Soldier
  • Jack the Skeleton
  • Indiana Jones
  • Darth Vader
  • Spy
  • Viking
  • Ninja
On Dallface's  list:
  • Sally (from The Nightmare Before Christmas)
  • girl Darth Vadar
  • girl Ninja
  • girl Viking
  • Monster High - Ghoulia Yelps
  • Vampire
  • Egyptian Princess
(apparently adding 'girl' on Dollface's list was a must...) So far the ninja's are winning, which is completely fine with me. Ninja costumes can be easy and inexpensive to make.

Really, I think they just want to be ninjas so they can add the cool ninja swords to their random toy/warrior collection.  Can't blame them there.

I would love to have a really great, spook-tastic,  hauntingly amazing Halloween bash this year, but quite a few of our friends here will be on leave and probably out of state. (click here if you are confused) If we do end up having a huge bash, like I want, here a few great ideas I found on Pinterest.

This one we will be doing for sure. I have an extra wreath at home, + Dollar Tree snakes + black spray paint also already at home = BAM  Too Easy and you'll have a front door that even Madusa could be proud of.

This one I have actually been doing for years. This usually has a good response at our Halloween get-together, but not always. I swear, some adults just act to grown up. Grow Down! Since I am not entirely sure where my photos are of it, here is an example that I found. 

Covering your chairs in black tulle. Hello, how easy is this and why haven't I thought of it on my own! Face Palm!
I don't think I will use orange as the ribbon color though, rather purple or black. 

 If I have learned anything about preparing for Halloween decorating, it is to stock up on cheesecloth and tulle and LOTS of it!

If you want to follow my PARTY: Like a Goblin board on Pinterest, you can do so here.


  1. Ha. Wait until you see what we have in store. (if you're on Pinterest, you probably know) Jeremy will finally be here for Halloween (the 3rd of Jonathans 8 Halloweens he will be here) and he's actually on board for doing a family theme! I'm so excited.
    I love the chairs too.
    Love that wreath too!!

    1. YAY! Have fun! We've tried before, but Pat was to wishy washy & didn't commit.
