DIY: How to Make Mermaid Fins + a pre-Halloween Party

foggydress_mermaid Over the weekend, my friends and I threw a pre-Halloween party.

We made delicious homemade pizza…

foggydress_mermaid …sewed our mermaid fins (don’t mind my messy sewing desk!)…


foggydress_mermaid  and watched the movie Casper … one of my all-time favorite Halloween movies from my childhood!!

foggydress_mermaid I just love the end of the movie, when Casper is allowed to get his body back, for only a few hours. Awww!! If you want a sweet/scary/sad/happy halloween movie for this year’s party…watch it!

Now, here’s the tutorial for those fins we made….  Continue reading

hello weekend & here are some halloween couples costume ideas

I’m excited because we have no weekend plans! Sometimes I love to be anti social, stay in all day, and catch up on Downtown Abbey. Looks like it’ll be one of those weekends.

AKG & I have been invited to an awesome halloween party, and we need a clever costume to wear. Last year I was Hello Kitty, and I tried to convince AKG to go as Dear Daniel (her bf) but he was unwilling to dress up like a kitty. So as much as I am a fan of repeating halloween costumes (I use like the same costume idea for about 3-4 yrs..what??), I need to think of a great, clever, new one. That got me thinking… there are so many couples in stories, movies, and books, who start off with one person, but end up with another. Wouldn’t it be funny to be an unexpected couple??

What are some other “unexpected couples”?? I’m hitting the wall here…all you clever people, help! I need some more ideas!

Have a great weekend 🙂
