I LOVE Halloween!
I’m not sure why. Could be the candy. Or maybe the spooky, creepy stuff that goes with it (I get a little thrill out of being scared). I think a big part of why I love Halloween is because it’s permission for grown-ups to play dress-up and act like kids one day a year. And I do.
But I also have two kids who love Halloween as much as I do. So today I’m sharing three of my favorite costumes. And a couple gratuitous photos just because.
1. When my son was about 18 months, he was very sensitive about clothing. That limited me for costumes cause I knew he’d complain about anything heavy or fluffy or cumbersome. So I got a little creative. I bought a black, long-sleeved shirt, white puffy paint, and white face paint. On the shirt, I wrote “Got Milk?” and on his upper lips I smeared a bit of the white face paint. He went as a Got Milk ad and he didn’t even know he was dressed up!
2. Back in my early twenties, before cellulite and all that, I went to a party dressed at Lara Croft Tomb Raider. I wore mini-black shorts and black tank top. From an army surplus store, I fastened two gun holsters to my thighs and placed two fake guns inside. I wore big black boots and styled my hair like hers.
3. This year I’m going in a costume I wore at RT for the paranormal party (pictured below). Little Red Riding Hood with a gothic twist.
For the GIVEAWAY I have two signed print copies of my most recent paranormal releases, Destiny Bewitched and Ever After (a shifter anthology that includes my novella, Destined for Eden).
