We had an awesome Samhain this year! My Elflings and I designed and carved the pumpkin, and made 40 wicked treat bags for the kids. Sadly, we only had 33 beggars at our door, but I guess that’s up from the 10-15 this area had last year. Woot!
My middle Elfling, Metatron, set her alarm for 04:00 to start her make-up for… the Terminator! She totally rocked this, and I’m thinking she has a definite future in FX! :0)
Another, closer view of Metatron’s incredible Terminator make-up art.
My youngest, Bean, loves the Khaleesi from Game of Thrones, so she decided that’s what her costume would be. She’s lucky I can sew! We hit Value Village, where I found an old, tweed blazer and some brown, faux suede curtains. Voilà! She is the Mother of Dragons!
My next little Elfling, Momo, wanted to be Skelita Calaveras from Monster High, and although it was easy to find the costume, the wig was a greater challenge, In the end we did find it, which made her day, as well as mine. I’m not super-skilled in the make-up department, but we pulled off the sugar skull look reasonably well. ;0)

Here they are in a nearby mall, where we went to trick or treat.
