after a full school day of parading and partying on friday, our little ghosts are ready for another round. very very soon we will hit the streets of brooklyn, pumpkin buckets in hand, to load up on an obscene amount of candy that will be divvied up over the next six months.. or just tossed when no one's looking. the girls have been practicing their trick-or-treating approach and they've got it down. eve, taking her costume seriously, has very specific plans of how to startle and scare and surprise as many of the good people of brooklyn as she possibly can. a test round on a group of 5th graders hanging out on the street on our way home yesterday went very well. giggles trailed after her floating figure all the way to our building. ruth has no interest in scaring others, but she doesn't mind showing her ghost shoes. they may say "BOO" but when said in fancy gold metallic iron-on dots, well that's only going to make people happy, especially those little girls of the just days away from four-years-old variety.
dots from here. the service was so fast and, come on. iron-on metallic dots? too cool. any residual 10-year-old envy of my friend and her BeDazzler has been washed away.
gymnast shoes from pearl river. a few reinforcing rounds through the sewing machine fixed eve's ripped seam and she was ready to go for a night on the town. also, be warned; they are slippers and and slippers aren't water proof. our ghosts had soggy feet at the end of the night. but throw enough candy at them and they don't even notice.
