Justine's Halloween Blog Party 2014

You're all welcome to my yearly Halloween blog party! This year it's being held deep in the forest.
It's so dark that it's difficult to see the path. So grab a lantern on your way in. Be sure you don't lose sight of the guide who is waiting for you. She tends to disappear as soon as you look away!
Who's there?
Here's a little mood music for you as you follow the path:

The forest is so dark it's hard to tell what's lurking behind the trees!
eye contact
Especially the rustling behind that one tree over there... What could it be?

How do you like my talons? ;)
A giant owl! No, it's just me, your host. Good thing too. It would appear your guide vanished into the night. I'll show you to the door.

A link to who we're guessing made this cottage pic. Thanks Dex!

There are already some guests waiting to greet you!

Old Fashion Halloween was first to arrive as an adorable La Catrina. Check out those cool jewels around her eyes and the skull pattern on her dress. I love Day of the Dead makeup and clothing!

Next was Alicia. She's a clown, and not the funny kind! Alicia has a cool blog with makeup tutorials: The Alicia Marie Makeup Artistry Blog

Jewels dropped by as a vampire with her neighbor, The Wicked Witch!

Jason stepped in as Cap'n Crunch!

Then, to everyone's surprise, two bats flew in the window! They transformed into Vampire Ked and Vampire Miranda:

Just when we thought things couldn't get any scarier, we all heard some rustling outside the house. We looked out at the nearby graveyard to see a ghostly Patricia creeping among the tombstones!

She floated on in and joined the fun.

There are plenty of snacks at the party!

Just be careful of that skull...

There are also candy corn parfaits for everyone!

I'm actually planning to make these for Halloween night. They're made with layers of canned pineapple, mandarin oranges, and whipped cream on top. Really good!

There's plenty of great music playing at the party! This time we're kicking it old school. Reeeeaaallly old school with hits from the 1920s-1950s.

Be sure to watch the old video that goes with these songs! I think this is the perfect kind of old fashioned music to be playing in a little old house in the woods!

There's still room for more guests! Just send me a photo of yourself in costume from now or the past and I'll be happy to add you to the group! You can send your pics here:
