I'm really not into decorating the house much. So we just hung these jack o lanterns from Divi. These started out nice and round, but turned lumpy and oblong when it got wet in the rain. (Php35 each in Divi, Php85 each at Market Market)
And we placed this garden stake outside. (Don't remember exactly how much, not more than Php400 from a bazaar)
I got this costume for Marion a year ago (from Amazon). It was too big for her then but fits her just right this year.
To get her into it, we showed her Disney's Peter Pan (which I thought was a bit too violent for her and I had a difficult time explaining the Capt. Hook scenes.) to get to the Indian dance. Marion was acting out Tiger Lily and dancing and whooping the next day (Is it racist to whoop around like this?)
She wore it while trick or treating in Magallanes. I put together the feather clip for her since she refused to wear the wig + feather that came with her costume. (And we added a word to her growing vocabulary: fringe as in the fringes on her costume.)
(Snack break in Lolo's house.)
I saw lady bug wings in Divi so I got it for her. We didn't get to wear it this year. (Cheap. Php90 in Divi, around Php270 in NBS with a flimsy tutu)
Then I decided I could manage some homemade costumes. I've been wanting to make these wings for the longest time.
And so "blue eagle wings" from tela scraps I already had.
By the time I wanted to make an effort to come up with something for me and Rocky (and Marion), this Owl Crown was the only one I had the energy for. Haha.
Marion helped me put it together.
We wore our Ateneo shirts to the SYA Halloween Party. Um, blue eagle with owl crowns. (Drat, I forgot to wear my crown for this family pic.)
This Halloween Marion still got nervous around masks and painted faces... well, she was outright scared of the Kiss costumes of SYA Team 22. But she wanted to play with a little girl dressed as Tinkerbell.
This Halloween Marion got her first taste of cotton candy. Yummy daw.
I think she's had the most sweets these last couple of days than she's ever had in her 2 years. And I say she's had enough... til Christmas time. :-)
