Skinless Evil Laughter

Oh dear.  It's almost Halloween and I haven't done much decorating around here.  Oreo Cat eats all the spiders so you won't see them stuffed and hanging from my windows this year.  

The deer that ate my latest patch of pansies are not cooperating, either.  I bought them frilly little outfits but when they see me, they run away.







I also bought a costume for Oreo but he saw this photo and is hiding under the bed.

 Iz couldn't scare a flea if Iz tried.

Then I decided that this would be the year I would tackle pumpkin carving.  Forget starting small with silly little triangle cutouts and toothless grins.   THIS is one scary squash:

 Hungry, hungry, hungry! I eat kittens for snacks.

Oh yeah!  That was fun.  I love it.

What?

Oh, ok.  No, I didn't carve that.  I tried but Oreo jumped into the pumpkin and made a mess of things. 


Maybe I'll just do a bit of decorating...

I made a slight alteration to my candy bowl with the help of some SuperBond stuff.  I thought it would be fun to hand out candy with a skeleton in the bowl.  Hee Hee.

 Mr. Skinless surveys the empty bowl with his own special slant.

I need to work on that empty bowl issue.

Ooh ahh, Scarecrow lives!  She is guarding the apples:




OK.  OK.  Here's my costume:

 Rasta Tweety goes Disco!

Mr. Skinless isn't as scary to me as the scarecrow. Maybe I was a crow in a former life. Nice costume. Sorry your house is so sunny that you require sunglasses, though. That's rough.

I love the Predator pumpkin! Too cool!

And don't you look all cutesy! Ha!

Love the hair.

I might try that do.

heh heh

I'd love to see the deer in your frilly outfits! Great post!

@Kablooey - Those are some special shades. They've got sequins!!!! I'm sorry Scarecrow freaked you out. She is a bit of a clown.

@Quirky - Ah, thanks Quirky. You would look lovely with the colorful shiny hair! The predator pumpkin is hard on my food budget. I will ship him to you.

@Belle - Thanks! I think Oreo Cat ate those outfits. Sigh.

That pumpkin was just so funny. A vegetable with killer instincts. LOL.
But then deer in frilly white costumes, a cat in a hat, a head bowled over. Fascinating.
And the delightfully elegant woman at the end. Who is that mystery woman?

VE said...

Looks like your ready for your run! Rasta running is in you know...

Lauren said...

Wow! The squash is amazing. You've been busy. The photo of Oreo is adorable. I'm surprised ET didn't muck things up.

When is the next game of the World Series? Is that the last one if the Rangers win?

Did you get rain yet?

Didn't have a party planned this year (which was a good thing considering the surgery), so no decorations other than a skeleton nutcracker and a Halloween snow globe that Excy and Corey gave me after the hospital.

Wish we had trick or treaters but alas, not out in the country...

We don't "do" Halloween in Florida because most of us already look like the crypt keeper.

Hey, I was gone and just got back and you didn't even know!!

Bacon said...

Lovin' your costume! Especially the headband thing. I actually used to have sunglasses like those for nonhalloween times. heh.

I wish I could carve that pumpkin, too. When we do pumpkin carving, Chaos (our cat) always hangs out to eat the pumpkin guts. It's kind of gross. I also ALMOST bought him a unicorn costume. I think I still will. lol HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I googled "funny pumpkin carvings" last night after I saw one on FaceBook of a pumpkin giving birth to another pumpkin. It was slightly disturbing so I didn't share. I saw that scary squash and was wondering what it was doing with the "funny images". Some people have a lot of time on their hands and are very talented.

ReformingGeek said...

@Rob-Bear - Thanks. I love costumes but I don't think I would be brave enough to put it on an animal!

@VE- Rasta running. Um, Ok. Why not?

@Lauren - Oreo is still hiding. Yes, we've had a bit of rain and cooler temps finally!

@Wonder Wye - Ooh ahh. I want a Halloween Snow Globe!

@Bacon - Thanks! I can't imagine what comes out of that cat after his pumpkin-eating binge. I think I'll wear the sunglasses year-around. They actually fit. Large-framed sunglasses rarely do.

@Sue - Yeah, people who carve food amaze me. I guess chefs get really bored sometimes.

ReformingGeek said...

@Beau's Mom - What? You were gone?

Sheesh.

MikeWJ said...

Whoa, Reffie, that hairstyle is seriously hawt! Rawr! And happy Halloween, too. :)

I thought you'd be dressed up as evil twin this year. What happened?

Jean Knee said...

I can't believe the most magical night of the year is over.....You look like you had fun.

The Constant Complainer said...

I'm digging your costume. Happy Belated Halloween. And dude, that pumpkin was freaky! Yikes.

otin said...

Holy crap! That was some pumpkin!!
