Halloween 2010

A couple of pics from Halloween 2010 – apparently I was too busy hostessing to take pictures during the actual party….

Decorations this year revolved around black lights – the bottles filled with various colors of highlighter fluid are still gracing our kitchen…think they’ll last until next year??  We drank from marmelade jars painted with fosforescente spray paint, there was plenty of themed food (raw hamburger meat which is really big here, breadsticks shaped like fingers and toes, blood soup with mozzarella eyeballs (roasted red pepper instead of tomato), deviled eggs, spicy toasted pumpkin seeds, mummies (pigs in a blanket), worms and dirt for dessert….).  Glow in the dark nail polish and glow sticks for prizes added to the atmosphere…I promise to do a better job of documenting next year!

In attendance: me (I’m still in love with my wig), Luca was a mummy, there was a wizard, little red riding hood, Morticia Adams, a prostitute, several vampires, 3 witches, a butterfly, and a demon.

    haha, I love it!!! 🙂 You didn’t make everyone play that game with the donuts on a string?? 🙂

    I was just thinking about glow in the dark nail polish recently. We were SOOO into it for awhile, remember? I don’t think it was anywhere near Halloween either, LOL 🙂

    Sounds like it was a great time!!

    PS I think you need to post a tutorial on how you made that wig!

    Games are not tolerated much here – I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing or just an age thing – do you guys still do games?? Martha’s original tutorial is here. i didn’t use a cabbage like she did, I just stuffed a baseball hat with balls of yarn, stuck a chopstick in the bottom and positioned it on a tall vase on a pile of books…yeah probably the cabbage would have been easier. 🙂 I’m still wearing my glow in the dark nail polish – I got a deal on ten bottles – each a different color on ebay – I hated giving them away for presents! But since no one had ever heard of such a thing, they made a big impact so it was worth it (sort of..)

    Oh Martha is such a genius! What a great idea to use the colored paper instead of the newspaper, much cuter! I think most all the adults we know these days would still do (or at least tolerate) the games. We still play a lot of board games too, but maybe that is just a nerd thing.. 🙂 I really want to have a murder mystery party (I even got a game with the script at a garage sale!), but I think you need to come visit so we can pull it off in pure QM style! Maybe next Halloween, LOL 🙂
