Halloween Decor & Costumes Rundown!

We're back with more Halloween tricks and treats!!  I even picked a pumpkin for you! New Dress A Day - DIY - Halloween Costumes - Pumpkin Patch

I'm still working on my actual costume for this year's festivities, but you'll get a little teaser at the bottom of the post to tide you over until Monday when it runs!

In the interim, I have a few fun Halloween posts that I created for eHow and Goodwill!

First are the stenciled, fabric painted pillows that are currently adorning my vintage green velvet chair in my living room.  This is such an easy project that involved some tracing, cutting, ironing, and painting.  The slideshow and all the steps are located HERE, over on eHow's site!

Next comes a little Halloween breakdown on Goodwill's blog.  I'm obsessed with their racks and racks of costumes that you don't need to do a lick of work for, however the costume that I recreated included a little DIY.  I just couldn't resist...

Finally, here's a small taste of my costume...

This bodysuit will worn as part of my costume. It's definitely going to get dyed - along with another piece - to help craft the entire ensemble.  No, I'm not dressing up like Miley Cyrus in her mouse bodysuit from the VMA's even though I think I'm going to be running into people dressed like her all night.  Who's gonna be the one going as a wrecking ball, though?  That's my question!!

Let's just say my costume is based on someone from TV.  Perhaps they have red hair as well...

Who's still figuring out costumes and who has decided what they're going as already?  Fill a sista in!  I need to know!
