I am a little late blogging this but the girls did such a brilliant job with their costumes it seemed a shame not to feature them!

The night before, Skye had her friend A here for a sleep over and whilst they were upstairs doing whatever teenage girls do, Poppy carved a pepper as we struggled to find any pumpkins locally, but it worked well and looked quite cute 🙂


She also made a Halloween blood guts and gore cake using multi coloured mixture and covering it with a green icing spotted with red food colouring, though the photos doesn’t really show its true colours. It tasted yummy 🙂

They had been busy sewing, crafting and prepping for it on and off for a couple of days. I wouldn’t say we really ‘celebrate’ halloween but the girls LOVE creating outfits and dressing up, always have, and so this is just another one of those opportunities to do just that.

Skye created Little Dead Riding Hood, adapting an old halloween dress she found to make a cape, shortened a dress one of my mums friends had donated as part of or fabric stash and made up her face 🙂 She looked gorgeous 🙂 You can see more ‘theatrical’ and creative photos on Skye’s blog.

Halloween 2012


Poppy decided to go as ‘The Bad Hatter’ and made herself a fab top hat and put together an outfit from clothes we had in our fabric stash and dressing up box. She also did the most amazing ‘zombie’ style make up with pva glue, tissue and make up. This was her ‘practise run’ 🙂 Beautifully gruesome 😉

Peeling it off was fun though!


But this was the make up she went did on the day, mainly because it was pouring with rain so it may not have kept its effect. She is very talented at applying make up, which is probably a good thing as she wants a career as a make up/special effects artist 🙂


Skye went with a friend ‘Trick or Treating’ and then came home and went out with Poppy. It was just a shame the weather was so miserable 😦 We had a some very wet little witches and ghouls appear at our door!
