There’s that hair chalk. Much easier to apply when they’ve had a haircut! We were all in a rush as we thought the trick-or-treating was going to start at a certain time so we went for a quick swim, then discovered everyone was starting while we were in the pool!
LadyBug (6) was the only one with a proper costume since she has her Elsa costume along on our trip. She wanted freckles on her cheeks and we printed out a crown for her to wear. She was Elsa last year too, I’ll have to find a picture and see how long this costume was on her back then. Her hair is wet because of that quick swim we’d had to cool down after our camel ride.
My camera lens fogged up when I took it outside. JitterBug (8) is wearing the Boba Fett mask, or maybe it’s Jango Fett, I can never remember. He’s got nerf guns tucked in his pants for weapons. TurboBug (2) was supposed to be Sven, the reindeer from Frozen, but he ended up a combination of everyone else’s. He’s got his reindeer ears, freckles, orange stripes in his hair, and fake blood on his arms and legs. So he’s a reindeer/zombie/princess/bounty hunter. Who had no clue what was going on. 🙂
And my reindeer. The older kids were horrified when I let TurboBug colour his reindeer ears because he was scribbling all over them. They’re his ears, aren’t they? I coloured proper colours right over the top of it but made sure his scribbles still showed through. He still had no idea what was going on, but people were giving him lollies so what’s there to complain about?
Trick or treating is not something I’d do in a neighbourhood here in Australia unless it was all arranged with the neighbours before hand. Otherwise you’d end up knocking on people’s doors who wouldn’t want anything to do with Halloween. They don’t know that trick of leaving the porch light on if you want to participate. 🙂
