Ghost Gang

So when I last left you I was getting creepy.  Creepy to me isn't cute.  You might think the little ghost gang is cute, I think ghosts are creepy, a traditional Halloween creepy thing.  Spiders are way creepy to me.  Witches are creepy.  Birds are creepy.  Bloody ghosts and spiders eating people is not creepy, that's gross.  Well maybe spiders eating people would be creepy, I'll think on that.  I like creepy.  Not gross.  In other words, I like my witches ugly.

11 months out of the year I am a regular bleacher sitting God fearing mom.  But something comes over me in October.  I do not like to be scared.  But I LOVE to scare other people. 

Meet my kids.  It won't be what you are expecting.  Maybe some time I'll put up some photos of my good looking gang.  They have gotten a bit taller then these toddling ghosts.

One of my two daughters.  She is wearing her original little pants and shoes.
Just like her 5 siblings below.


Six little trick or treating ghosts line my entry way every year all dressed in clothes my kids actually wore.  I had to take one apart this year to fix his shoes and restuff his britches, so I took a couple photos of how easy these are to put together.
Little Footie form
They are a simple wood form, use what ever scrap wood you have laying around because I know that's what Brawn did.  Yes one of my son's had wild little plaid pants.  They were popular in the 90's.  Remember Zubaz?  Started here in Minnesota.  Remember the wrestling duo the Road Warriors who wore Zubaz?  Also from Minnesota.  One of those is making a comeback, you decide which.  These plaid pants are not Zubaz, I couldn't put the prized little zebra pants on a ghost.  I should have.  The whole family had Zubaz.  Cracks.  Me.  Up.

I thought about updating the ghosts and had some good ideas, but four of them were made 17 years ago and it didn't seem right to change them now.  We added the last two ghosts as we added more kids.  So I just dust them off, pull up their pants, knock the stuffing in their heads around, and they're good to go. 

I also baked last week.  The Crow is ready to devour this piece of cake.  I'll tell you what Pinterest cake was a huge hit next time.  So much so I made 3 of the same cake within 7 days.

Today's costume installment,  a Witch Doctor, or Head Hunter.  Witch-ever.  Real fur coat sleeves as leg warmers and hat.  Yes those are real bones.  How did a bone get attached below my nose?  Super glue of course.  A very very very small dot, worked perfect.  In case you are thinking you didn't read that right... yes I super-glued a real bone under my nose

  1. I like your ghost family. I don't think they are creepy or scary but more Nightmare Before Christmas....maybe the large heads and those tiny bodies is kinda creepy now that I think about it. Your picture could pass as real kids trick-or-treating though : )

    I hate being scared too but I LOVE to scare other people!!!

  14. You superglued a bone under your nose. An intervention may be needed...that is hardcore!!! Love the family...they are probably nice and quiet, the best kind of family. What are you going to be this year?? I wanna know. And what cake. Which one was that. It looks like the butterfinger one perhaps.

  15. LOVE these ghost kids - I need to find my girls old clothes and make my own! Pinning this - because if I don't I'm scared that a girl that will super glue a bone under her nose will stop at nothing to seek revenge!

  17. You just continue to blow me away! Seriously the coolest mom ever. Would you consider adopting a couple of 30-somethings? I'll have to remember the little ghosties.... absolutely adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Bliss! I think that is so cool that you used your kids clothes, and have left them all these years later...I'm such a sentimental sap!

    super glue? ouch!

    you look great..I'm dressing up this year for the first time in a LONG time. nothing earth shattering, but I look forward to it. ;)

  19. Oh these are CUTE!! I see the crow put the eyeball down long enough to check out the cake. Hoping that superglue residue has worn off your lip by now too. :)

  28. Wow, you look amazing. I have to hand it to you. I don't think I would put superglue anywhere on my body intentionally for any reason. You always crack me up.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You are so much fun!! Love those little ghost kiddos! Especially love that they have on your kids' clothes...seriously cute and clever!! Laurel

  30. You're a ROCK STAR! I love your "children" but the bone, super glued under your nose...well that makes you #1 in my book. Not sure what it means for you, but I happen to think that it's okay to super glue stuff to your body. I cracked my fingernail and it's currently super glued until it grows out. If it works, I say, why the heck NOT! xo

  31. The ghost kiddos are adorable! How fun!

  34. Your ghost gang is hilarious! I keep my kids clothes too - we dressed our dog up in them once - she felt ugly, though.
    Thanks for your comment on My Space - please copy my hodge podge decor. :) that would make me feel better about it.

  35. Your ghost gang is adorable. Do they have a secret hand shake?

    And, you are a brave woman for super gluing anything to your body. That costume rocked!

    ReplyDelete

  37. Oh yes.......you did a good job making those ghosts creepy! Just the thought that they are wearing the clothes that your children once wore........creepy, indeed. Ha! Your costume is great! Are you supposed to be a cave woman? Very creative. I hope you don't have glue still on your upper lip now.

    ReplyDelete
  38. These are super super cute.

  39. Oh my goodness, you are my IDOL! In every way, I love the family of ghosts, what a great idea! I love that they are wearing clothes your kids actually wore! I am so in love with your Halloween Costume you shared today. Truly, super glue???? You know how to make every detail count!

    ReplyDelete
  40. These are too cool and very creepy. Ya see I'm the type of person that looks at a doll and sees the evil in it lol So while these guys can be on the cute side they also scream "I'm so gonna bludgeon you in your sleep!" :)

    Now is super gluing a bone under your nose just a clever way to wax your upper lip? hahah

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, My goodness, your ghost family is so cute! In a halloween sort of way. :)

  46. You know you make us laugh, but I think using superglue on yourself is a bit extreme, someway between funny and crazy !
    The costume is awesome though, superglue and all and I love your gaggle of ghosts !

    ReplyDelete
  47. A little gang of Ghouligans!! Love it!! Bet it unsettles the trick-r-treaters a bit. ;)
    And you, my dear, are a bbrrraaaavvvvee indeed to go so far as to use super glue under you nose!!

    Thank you for linking up at the Wildly Original party! <3 Christina at I Gotta Create!
