Fabulous Find For A Friday-------Two Flappers And A Scary Guy

This year for Halloween, we are going trick or treating to our favorite neighborhood in Mass. We have gone there for about 5 years, as it is safe, has sidewalks, and you get good stuff!

Well, that is not really why we go there,....but it is where we used to live, and my daughter graduated from High School near there----and it is one of our favorite neighborhoods.....

And since we are gearing up for our show at my theatre, The Cannon Theatre, and our show opens next week, "Rookery Nook", (do you have your TICKETS yet?) we decided (or rather, I decided,) since my hubby usually has to be matching with me----(yeah, remember that I make him match sometimes?) to dress up like the 1920's flapper era. And yes, you guessed it----the play is set in the 1920's. And yes, we just keep trying to promote the play, as we could use some ticket sales!!


Now, last Friday night, my church hosted our annual Halloween Trunk or Treat-----it is where everyone dresses up, we get together to have yummy food, a costume parade, then everyone takes their cars or trucks, decorates the trunk or back and the kids go around getting candy from everyone. It takes place in the parking lot and you can let your kids go, as they are really very safe. Its a great tradition!


You may be wondering why Aydan isn't connected into the theme of our Halloween costumes. Well.......he usually likes to be something evil. Yes, every year, I try to get him to do something fun and positive, but he prefers to be something that has to do with death or some sort of a bad guy.....


So, this year, as I was trying to change his mind, as usual----and he was heading for the black and skeleton section, he let me know the reason that he likes to be evil at Halloween.
.

"Mom, I am a really positive and good person all the time," he said.

"Right"...... I replied, "and that's a good thing!"

"I know....but the only time that I can be negative and evil,..............IS ON HALLOWEEN!"



Makes perfect sense, right?

Stepping back into the past.....1920's!

And here is that scary ghoul guy with Bret, the flapper dude----notice the great socks...

Yes, that little boy can be pretty scary!! He comes from
an acting family, by the way----what do you expect?

That was so funny! Those pictures are priceless. Yes, I think that young man has a bit of acting blood in him with that solemn, scary face. Love the flapper costumes! Just fabulous!

My sister and I dressed up as flappers when we were in grade school. To this day, one of my favorite costumes ever! I need to do it again, who doesn't love a little fringe? You look phenomenal as usual, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Fun costumes! My son wanted to be the Grim Reaper this year (he's been sick, so he didn't get to go out anywhere) & he's also a positive, good kid the rest of the year...
Happy SITS Sunday! I hope you all had a great Halloween.

I'm glad you let Ayden be scary and I love his rationale behind his need to be scary - sharp guy!

You look the part so well you could be in one of those black and white flapper movies with the fuzz on the screen.

Well done!

i love all of your costumes! you guys look Great!

...i know i was kind-a sad...this year i had no control over the costumes...and as they grow older they don't even fit into cute, soft, warm, plush costumes (if they'd even wear them!)....which are my favorite...oh well!
