Halloween Night...

Well, it's a new day and a new month, but I will always have fond memories of Halloween night! JP and I went out on the town with the best-est of friends and enjoyed a late dinner at Vesta along with some fabulous (and belly-busting) people watching. The imagination certainly runs wild on October 31st, and that is why I love it so very much! We scrounged up an old costume from years since past, bought some face paint and morphed into the Halloween Monarch! What fun it was! Here's a peek..... I hope everyone had a spooktacular Halloween and enjoyed the sights and scenes as much as we did!..... ~ Johanna ~

* There I am, hurriedly applying orange and black paint to my face.. The doorbell kept ringing with anxious trick-or-treaters awaiting their candy handouts!... Once I finished with my face, JP was next in line...

* And voila!.... The Halloween Monarch strikes again! We had the tripod set up, snapping our photo as we oddly posed for the camera. We could see folks in costume stopping to stare from the street at our strange image in the window...

Oh Johanna!
Honey this is the most beautiful costume ever. How precious that you two were able to share it. I love it. It is both creative and original. L-O-V-E love it. I thank you for sharing this wonderful piece work of God. Your face painting was also beautiful. I am sure all of the trick or treaters and folks on the town were amazed as am I. Beautiful!

Happy November sweetie. Country hugs, Sherry

Johanna,
It is hard to add anything to describe my reaction to your costume as the others have already expressed my sentiments perfectly.
I'll just say thank-you for sharing. Beautiful.
