I meant to post Halloween wishes up on the day itself but the Chibi and I ended up playing Mario Party 6 (for ye olde Cube) until very late and I was simply too tired to sort all the pics by the end of the day. I managed to sort a good chunk of them today, but still have many more to go (I'm pretty sure that between myself and my daughter, we took about 200+ pics o_o;; Not all of them came out and in the end, I'll probably have about a good 50 usable shots, mostly similar, but it's still a larger folder to go through and I've only made it halfway so far...)

But at least I got enough sorted to make a post, and while this Halloween shoot is coming a little late, I still hope everyone had a wonderful time ^_^

Obviously I went as rori!Mario, the chibi went as Crossdresser!Luigi and little miss Mister went as Yoshi. I had a total of three days to get everything completed (ah, the joys of being a procrastinator) and almost didn't make it. I was making my jewelry early in the morning of the 31st and doing my nails at around 1p (because they were rushed, my Starmen nails ended up being a little gimpy -haha) but I did get it all done and the rush was worth it. My daughter was the best Luigi ever and Mister... well she didn't even have to be in the costume to be cute, but she so totally rocked her green and red look >.< <3

Here's a gratuitous amount of same!like shots from what I've sorted so far ->

Mister was yawning in this pic and I thought she looked so cute, as if she was doing a little Yoshi rawr or something.

And the Chibi as Luigi. She looked so adorable and between her looking like this and Mister in her Yoshi outfit, I spent a lot of time squeeing shamelessly over how cute my two girls were xD

Mario: Ay Luigi! Tookdakaa Potato!

Luigi: *runs away*

This was man!purse Luigi xD

Mister kisses made for a goofy faced me.

She was being such a good sport.

It was so cold on Halloween though that she had to wear one of her other normal shirts under the thick Yoshi one, and she was still shivery more often than not D:

We didn't skimp on her walks though, no matter how cold or warm it's been she has a thing about getting every one of her walks -haha

And finally (at least until I can sort through the rest of the pics), a bonus low light grainy pic of all three of us together (taken by the Rabbit<3)

I'm reminded as to why I tend not to smile for pics during times like these. I look so derpy when I do ~_~

I'll make a separate entry for the JSK and Starman purse crafty bits since this one is so picture heavy, but ah it was so much fun this year. Funner I think than I've had for a long while now as far as Halloweens have gone. It's also the first Halloween for the chibi and myself alone and without the ex (I'm not counting last year since the entire time spent after the divorce was almost a complete wash <_<), I definitely think the addition of Mister into our small family unit has been the best substitute for the space that used to be there and I'm looking forward to many more years of times like these <3


  1. Yay Halloween! The costumes are awesome [star purse! >.<] and I'm glad you guys had a fun day. All the costume goodness was totally worth it, even with the procrastination and rushing ^^

  2. Amazing outfit. I love all your little details <3

  3. Aaack!! I saw this outfit on Tumblr, it is just all kinds of adorable!! The costume for your puppy really topped it all off!

  4. Wow. very clever. Did you make that pinafore dress out of denim?
