Halloween is my favorite time of the year. Seriously, I LOVE Halloween. I love the fall, I love the colors, I love the feeling, I love ‘cuddle weather’. Everything about this time of the year truly makes life a little better. This year for Halloween I’m going to be a ‘Sexy Captain Swashbuckler’ even though it’s like, not sexy at all. It’s just a really cool jacket style pirate costume. When it’s all done, I’ll post some more photos of the finished costume. I won’t be wearing a hat because I don’t like hats. Maybe a bandanna or something, I don’t know, we’ll see what happens.So here is a preview of what the dress looks like. I bought a petticoat for it, also, so it’s going to be even POOFIER on the bottom.
Look, what a surprise, I changed my hair color again! I used Jerome Russell Punky Colour in: Rose Red and Violet. I am in love with this. I am very pleased, it was totally spontaneous as well. (yes, i had to add two pictures of my hair.)
Lastly, my friend Erin and I made Adventure Time Cupcakes. My favorite one is Peppermint Butler, followed by Lady Rainicorn (for her hair, not so much the body). Lady Rainicorn was kind of a disaster since we did her last, we had to use what was left of the colored fondant, which was not a lot. Therefore, we didn’t have enough and it kinda turned out weird, but that’s okay since the hair was perfect and really distracted from her awful limbs and body.
For this we used:
- Funfetti Pilsbury cake mix
- Wilton’s premade white rolled Fondant
- Cream cheese whipped* frosting
- Food coloring (to change the color of the fondant)
- And lastly, various tools and sprinkles
Thanks for getting this far down this incredibly long post, you’re the first to know that I’m going to be having an End of the Year giveaway! I’m not going to be saying what I’m giving away yet BUT, expect that post towards the beginning of November. Like, November 2nd. That’s when it starts. Anyway, I hope you have a great day and a spooky Halloween! ♥
