31 Days of Samhain: Day 4

Well it's day 4 of the 31 Days of Samhain.  Today's post is for those who are looking for some Samhain outfits, these are for kiddies, but it won't take much more time to make them into adult versions.  Now personally I'm not much of a fan of the mass made outfits, if only because when you get tot eh party several people could be wearing your outfit. Not at all Cool. Most years I make up what I'm wearing, then i got this and I thoguht hmmm why not share and ask the readers what they are doing for Samhain.

I got this  email from Real Simple, which had some seriously cute costume ideas. Click here for the ideas and the needed items for each outfit.

This is the cute detective outfit, I loved it. If I didn't already have an outfit picked out I would do this.

For the last few years, i have gone as a Witch Doctor.  I wore an awesome witch's hat, my scrubs from school, a broom and my name tag which was "Dr. Shrinks Heads", until a guy made a really rude remark I preceded to retire that outfit.

Last year I was a Dryad (a tree spirit), I have locs, so I made my locs stick out with pipe cleaners to make branches. I'm already brown, so that makes it easy for me since I didn't have to use any make-up.  I used  skin tone tights and wore a crown of oak leaves. I made a brown dress with leaves and 'shadows' scattered across it. I made it look like a trees trunk. Only the witches and the nerds got my reference, everyone else thought I was a tree or an Ent from Lord of the Rings.  I found this awesome photo and website that appears to be selling the outfit, so click and check it out.

This year I think I'm going to be the Goddess Medusa. I'll show pics, when I'm done making it.

What are you going to be for Samhain my loves??? Share in the comments and share pics if you have them. I'm going to go see if I have any pictures of my previous outfits to share with y'all.


I love my readers, and your comments help me to know how you feel, so please share.
Thank You and Goddess Bless.
