Halloween 2013 Recap

I realize that I’m two days late on posting my Halloween 2013 recap, but I’ve been very, very busy decorating for Christmas and am just now getting to it. Yes, I’m already getting my house ready for Christmas! I know, I know…Halloween JUST passed and Thanksgiving hasn’t even passed yet. However, I will be in New York City the first half of December, and I don’t want to rush to get Christmas decor up after Thanksgiving.

I wasn’t even going to dress up for Halloween. Seriously, I was just going to go to the fall festival in jeans and a t-shirt. While I was straightening my hair at 3PM Halloween afternoon, I decided to braid my locks and got the idea to go as Wednesday Addams. I think I also found my alter ego in the process. One of my friends even noted “You were born to be Wednesday Addams.”


Everything that I wore was already in my closet, which made for a free costume (besides, you know, actually purchasing it before).

What I Wore:

Dress: Xhiliration from Target
Collared Shirt (that I wore underneath my dress): Forever 21
Boots: Nine West


I decided to keep it relatively simple with makeup, as Wednesday is a young girl. I did, however, add foundation that’s a LOT lighter than my actual skin tone to give myself a paler look.  Below is the makeup I wore:

Foundation: Covergirl Classic Ivory
Lipstick: No clue. No label whatsoever.
Eyeliner: Maybelline Define-a-Line in Ebony Black
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay in Grifter and Uzi
Mascara: Rimmel Lash Accelerator in Black

Although I bought a Doc McStuffins costume for Halloween for Bella, it was entirely too big for her to realistically walk around in it. So, we had a backup Cinderella dress that was much cuter anyways. She has worn this same Cinderella dress at her birthday party back in April and at the Disney Princess Storybook breakfast in August. My mom, Bella and I went to a fall festival titled “Hallow Him” at a local church. They had tons of games and food. Of course, we had to play most of the games for Bella, but she enjoyed receiving pieces of candy. She got to go inside of the moon bounce, and let me tell you – It is damn near impossible to get a 3 year old out of one of those without tears involved. She did not want to get out, and when we put her shoes back on, she decided she was going to be in a foul mood for the remainder of our time there.

Afterwards, we stopped at IHOP to get Bella the free scary face pancakes that they were offering. She normally likes pancakes, but she wasn’t in the mood for them that night, apparently. She did eat her bacon and toast like it was nobody’s business.


How much candy did YOUR kids rack up this Halloween?

    My kid got little to nothing. I could see people inside with their lights on but couldn’t be bothered to open the door. 🙁
