This is Halloween, This is Halloween

Yes... I've already watched The Nightmare Before Christmas this month, and I'm sure it won't be the last time. 

The Pumpkin King and I go way back... to childhood.  I listened to the movie soundtrack so much, my player ate the tape.  I don't have a Christmas village, but I surely do have the Nightmare before Christmas village.  They light up on the inside and everything.  I've seriously thought about being Sally for Halloween just about every year, and now that I have a husband that's 6'5" (a foot taller than me) and about the same build as Jack Skelington... well... I really have tried to talk him into it. hahaha. 
I wasn't expecting a costume party this year (usually I'm the one to throw it and I just haven't had time to think about it lately), but we got invited to one, so we're a bit too crunched for time to throw together a satisfactory Jack and Sally.  
I'm contemplating getting a fedora (like a cheap one from Target) and a cute top, wearing jeans and my converse (signed by Switchfoot, hello).  I'd wear lots of mismatched jewelry, make a "press pass" and strap my camera around my neck.  Instant photographer. (To tell you the truth, I just really want a fedora, and what a great excuse! I don't even look good in hats, but I. Don't. Care.)

Anyone else going to a costume party this year?  What will you be?



  1. I am definitely dressing up for Halloween this year! I'm going to be... wait for it... The Mad Hatter! I bought an orange wig, his hat, a crazy tie, and LOTS of make up. It should be fun :D

  2. That sounds like a lot of fun Amber! Be sure to post pictures!

  3. Those would be really fun costumes. Too bad you guys don't have more time to get them together. But I'm sure whatever you come up with will be fun. I'm finally doing it big for Halloween this year, going all out in Tahoe! can't wait. And I'll be a devil :)

  4. Nightmare Before Christmas! I love love love it... Although I'm not sure whether I'm getting dressed up yet... No costume parties to attend, is the problem. :(

  5. oh, you've got yourself a really tall hubs :)))
    I've never been to a masquerade , but I'm guessing I would go masked as a HOLLYWOOD SPY, people say I look like that little guy ^_^

  6. Confession: I've never seen the nightmare before Christmas! Never! And now I feel I must since I know you have great taste!

    I want photos of the fedora!

  7. I love The Nightmare Before Christmas! Thanks for reminding me I need to watch it. One of my friends dressed up as Sally last year. Totally cute and fun!

    PS: I don't look good in hats either, but I want to wear them so badly!! I tried on one a couple of weekends ago and my hubby told me I looked like a hobo. LOL. Oh well, maybe one day I'll find one that doesn't make me look like a hobo. :)
