Belated Halloween photos

Luke was invited to a Halloween party at a friend's house and wanted to go as a skeleton.  Here he is.

His hair was white face paints mixed with ordinary styling gel which worked quite well.  He went trick or treating at the end of the party and came home like a bedraggled rat with his hair slicked to his head as it was raining cats and dogs.

Rachael initially was only going to have her nails painted.  I spent ages painting little ghosties on them for her, trying to get different faces for each which was difficult.  Finally she was convinced to put her old costume on to scare and trick or treaters

Perhaps she overdid the fake blood a bit?  Trick or treaters were really disappointing this year.  We only had 5 groups come round whereas in previous years we have run out of sweets as it was so busy.  We sat and watched The Corpse Bride whilst Luke was out as he wouldn't have liked it.  

And are this years pumpkins.  Luke's is the one with the teeth joined (top), Rachael's has the teeth staggered (bottom).

Great photos!
We don't get trick or treaters here although we live very close to a large housing estate we are down a dark scary lane with our dark scary house at the end!
We did watch Corpse Bride, and the Nightmare Before Christmas then we went to see Frankenweenie at the cinema!

Oh my! Luke really looked a fright! Both the children have really grown! Looks like a great Halloween despite the lack of trick or treaters.

Great pics! Sounds like they had fun, which is the most important :)

Spooky! Glad they had fun. We never get any trick or treaters as we live about a mile outside of the main village. I always buy lots of delicious chocolate treats from M&S or Thorntons just in case, then I always end up having to eat them myself. Its so sad ;D

We didn't have any trick or treaters this year either (although I stocked up big this year after running out last year). Not sure why.

Great ghoulies you have in your house, though.
