Here’s Unakin’s Halloween this year (and some from last year’s)
Halloween 2011 was a lot kinder than last year’s maybe because for starters, it didn’t hail. Yes, solid form of precipitation angrily fell as we roamed the dark streets. It looked like a scene from an ill budgeted horror flick with midget-size mythical creatures.
However, just like last year, due to my propensity in frugality and strong belief that everything should be profitable, Una’s costume is once again quite a creative ensemble that I put together. A couple of dollar store finds ($2 for the wand and wings) and a couple of trivial items that are not too trivial i this occasion she has lying around. And tada! She’s turned into a blushing, preppy, princess fairy. (At least this year, she really did look like a fairy or a princess because last year’s costume got her confused for Zorro)
But then again, unlike last year, this Halloween’s revenue (in the form of simple sugars and gummy worms) isn’t as impressive. Blame it on juvenile incontinence (I somehow have to make it seem like it is an actual condition)! She had to go potty so that punctuated our halloween adventure. Needless to say, I was a little bit disappointed. There’s not as much candy to deprive the little princess from and for me to hoard and secretively devour while she’s napping or distracted watching Yo Gabba Gabba.
