So anyhooo, I don't recall why I even had my phone out at the dinner table one night recently and I sure don't know why I was on Pinterest, but I came across this beautiful scarecrow...
And pooof.... the lightbulb came on!
I have 5 skeletons for this year (so far). 2 pose & stays and 3 not.
Miss Angela happens to do....5 different types of dance.
What if I borrow a costume from each type of dance for a skeleton and pose them in a corresponding manner??
She has several hundred costumes (OK, slight exaggeration, but her closet is filling up rapidly!) She does ballet, lyrical, tap, jazz & hiphop - and after 12 years, she's got quite a stash of threads.
I promised I wouldn't mess up her costumes (some of the competition ones have been recycled and used for multiple years) so in case of rain again, I may just dress them up the night before or day of Halloween.....or I could pose them and just drape them with black creepy cloth? Either one would work.
The 3 non-pose & stays will be a challenge, but between strategic fence posts and fishing string, I can make something work. I plan to keep them all fairly close together, so they can support each other.
Love this idea!
I don't think I'll borrow the shoes, tho. Have you every been around a dancer and her feet / shoes? Those things are rotten! I prefer not to mess with those.
Right as I found the scarecrow, the hubby showed me this - funny!
Hmm, I'm assuming an interior PVC frame to pose the arms?
The purple one cracks me up!
And this weekend......
I'm not all as pyscho crazy as some of those people on the Boney Bunch Love FB page (OMG, I can't wait!!! I've been waiting for months!! blah blah blah - get a life!!) But I will go to the preview party and I'm sure to pick up a piece or three. I like the lady with the wine glass and they also have a pet cemetery tart burner that looked interesting. I don't like going to the mall, so this is one of the few things (other than teenage girl & friends) that will get me there willingly.
And what's up with this cool weather?? It feels like fall now and it's still a month til my birthday!
