Things I’m thinking I’ll need to turn Emmeline into a witch this year.
Black and white stockings
What the hell else do witches wear?
Yup, that’s what I was gonna say. Warts. Let’s face it – they’ve never been very fashion forward, those witches.
Warts, yes — good one. I just have to make sure they’re edible.
I was going to suggest a wand, too. Didn’t think of the wart, clever. I guess that’s if she’s going to be a bad witch. My little one is going as a witch, too
green or black fake nails…long evil nails.
A prefect badge.
I have a black cat you can borrow/have.
oooh, nice touch, Dean Mama!
Ya gotta make the long pointy shoes.
Hmm…call me crazy, how about a dress?
ummm…. you really think she’s gonna leave the nose on???? I’m just saying….
The nose is going in the first three minutes, that’s my bet. You could just save the hassle and make her into a good witch (with her own already-cute nose showing just how good she is…)
Get her a little cauldron to collect candy in. Throw some plastic (or jelly) snakes and frogs in it for good measure.
I see your pointy shoes, wart, and wand and raise you some spiders and a cauldron. She can use the cauldron as her candy container.
I know, I know — figuring out a way to keep the nose on is going to be the biggest challenge. But yeah, pointy shoes and a cauldron are definitely in the mix now. Thanks.
A crazy wig- jet black with gray streaks in it!
That’s funny, I was just thinking of whether she should have a skunk-stripe, regular west witch wig or something more modern, like a pink stripe or a green one — the punk witch of the lower southeast transit corridor, maybe.
you could give her heavy black eyeliner & black lipstick & she could be the semi-goth witch….
I too, was going to say a wart, but then she’ll probably just eat it.
Every witch needs a black cat…
Oh, yes, the pointy shoes!
We have it easy this year. Tessa wants to be a ghost–and not just any ghost, but the one Charlie Brown dresses up as–full of holes.
Dress her like a robot, but not a normal robot…a robot witch! Awesome right?
A wee cauldron filled with dry ice. Or will she want to put her hand in it? Maybe just for the photo.
There WILL be a photo of this.
The heads of small children or animals?
I know they always eat lost children in fairy tales or bake them into bread
Now we’re talking. Kids will run in terror from her.
[...] In this post, you’re going to have to use your imagination, a bit. I’m going to give you some basic how-tos, that you can translate into any costume you want; whether you want to be a comical adult version of John Edwards, Princess, a Pirate, or an Elf, or, in this case, Pinocchio. There has been a lot of discussion about Halloween costumes, already, on the internet. What to be, how much they cost, and even a free Halloween t-shirt give-away and ideas for a dog costume. [...]
[...] I wanted Emmeline to be a witch for Halloween. I looked for hats. An Internet friend sent a recipe for making long noses and pointy hats in the microwave, but I could never get it right. I went to the hardware store, searching for brooms, and I priced saws to cut them in half. [...]
