First day of October! Get ready for the holidays!


Hello! First day of October and the holidays will be here before you know it. Sounds like fun right? I love this time of year. Pumpkin spice everything, pumpkin carving, thoughts of costumes, scary stuff, and turkey time to come.

I decorated my house yesterday for Halloween. I love decorating for Halloween and Christmas. It is fun for me and I just love the change. I can not wait for the weather to cool down some more. It is still too hot here.

The thing that comes to mind now is hoping to finish my costume before Halloween and to get my little man’s costume done as well. And is it just me or has the quality of costumes gone down? I will never forget getting an Alice in Wonderland Costume from Spirit Halloween and it fell apart in an hour. That was without moving around a bunch. I was so mad. And returned it.

So, I want to make mine this year and can not wait to show you all.

    I’ve been going to a sci-fi/fantasy convention for the past few years, and am one of those people who dresses up for it. I bought a costume online from some store that specializes in such thing, and the color faded after the first wear, and it started coming apart at the seams.

    So, yeah. Quality has gone done. Making your own costume is so much more fun, anyway. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

      I’m glad I am not the only one who feels this way. I just don’t remember as a kid having such crappy costumes. I am hoping I get this done before Halloween.

    I wanted to make my son’s costume this year, but my husband has overridden me. But we have compromised and we are only going to buy him the shell and have him wear green sweats and the purple mask he already has. I bet no one can guess what he is going to be, ha ha.
