Halloween is a huge event in our neighborhood with over 1,000 trick or treaters. This year we are following a Harry Potter theme with our costumes and decorations. Stephen is Dobby, I'm Luna Lovegood, Spencer is Ron Weasley and our friends will be joining us dressed as Mad Eye Moody, Bellatrix Lestrange, Dumbledore, Harry Potter, and Voldemort. Andy really wanted to be a rubik's cube, which is totally o.k. Everyone should be what they want to be for Halloween. His vision was a huge rubik's cube he could wear over his head but could squat down and hide inside.
We're a family of artists (Stephen also has a BFA) so of course we have to DIY our halloween costumes and decorations. Stephen is the true genius behind most of our halloween projects. Of the projects below I only made the Luna Lovegood lion hat, bag, and Andy and I made the rubiks cube together. Stephen made the 10' high spider, the steam-punpkin, and the rest of the decorations on the house. Below are the various DIY's we've been channeling our creative energy into all month. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
