Halloween Party 2010!!!

Hey Lovelies,

So finally I am able to wind down from all of the Halloween stress and fun!!! Wow, so much prep went into this year, but it was all worth it , because the party was so much fun!!! Everyone's costumes were so great, and I'm so glad Avi and I have set the bar last year, and were able to inspire our friends and family to be a lot more creative !! The Carubia household really does go all out ! We pull out all the stops, from the food to the decor ... it's the little touches that really make it that much more awesome...

Won't you please come in?

Oh , don't mind them! It's just the spirits of Bonnie and Clyde!
My parents did pretty good at whipping a costume together last minute !

The party space !

The fireplace is a glow with pumpkin spice candles and a skull, the mantle is adorned with a Jack-o-Lantern, Fall Leaves, and Festive Orange Lights!

I want you to meet our hosts for this year !!

Beetlejuice & Miss Argentina !
(Avi & I)
We both made our costumes from scratch and thrift store items. I sewed my dress , and also made my cape from fabric and floral wiring. I also painted stenciled letters onto a thick piece of ribbon bought from Walmart. Avi painted white stripes onto a plain black thrift store suit jacket and dress pants. He bought his boots off ebay and i found my boots at a thrift store for 6 bux! What a steal! For makeup, avi used greas paint, I also used grease paint on my face and chest area, and for my arms I was so impatient, I just used acrylic water based paint. We both got our wigs from Party Stores, and spruced them up a bit to look more like the characters. I pinned mine up into a messy bun, and Avi spray painted his wig a bit yellow and green, and then spirit gummed craft moss around his head and face to give it the rotting appearance. He also used teeth stain, which made his teeth look completely disgusting and unkissable, LOL! Well there's our costumes.. not too shabby huh?


Our guests start to arrive!

It's not a Halloween Party without Miss Justina's famous "Deviled" Eggs

Would you like some Ghoul's Grog to help wash that down?

Time for some ghoulish dancing!

The resemblance is uncanny!

No Halloween Party is complete without a fortune teller gypsy booth!

Welcome to Tituba's Corner!
She does crystal ball readings, tea leaves, tarot, or palm readings...
Your choice!

Palm reading, you say?
Perfect choice!
