Halloween is my favorite holiday, but this year time just got away from me a bit. I was more on top of my game in London with my DIY costumes and parties, but alas, this year, not so much. So I'll be going back to an older Halloween tradition that my husband and I used to do on Halloween nights such as this, Chinese take-a-way, horror films, wine, and handing out candy, which works just fine for me. This year I think we will be returning to such horror classics as Nosferatu, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and a little Young Frankenstein for good measure. The last 2 films are my ALL TIME favorites, as you just cannot beat German Expressionist film sets and a Gene Wilder/Mel Brooks combo!
Even though I didn't have a costume this year, I will leave you with my favorite ones from the last 2 years, that way I won't seem so much of a spoil sport.

After looking through my photos I realized that I didn't have a photo of the whole chicken costume, so I'll have to give you a kind of lame rundown so you can use your imagination. The chicken costume consisted of a yellow feather boa around the neck and an orange one coming out of the back of my skirt as a plume and orange knee high socks for my chicken legs. Apologies for the poor quality cat photo.
