A Saturday October morning started with a trip to Old Salem with my mom and sister. It was finally cold out after being close to 90 degrees for months.
We wandered around the farmer’s market, and in the little shops. On the ground I saw some weird mushroom type things, and this little painted rock with a pumpkin on it.
We went back to my Mom’s house where we talked about Halloween plans and costumes. Eventually our plans led us here.
Halloween shops always pop up mysteriously, in the shell of a recently abandoned store. Never in the same place, each year it’s always a game to figure out where they will appear.
I started planning my costume, which is my favorite character from my favorite band, Ghost. So next was a trip to Goodwill and then the fabric store to get supplies, with lunch at a Greek restaurant in between shopping.
The costume I decided to create in two weeks!
After realizing I would probably never find a jacket at goodwill that looked similar enough, I decided to attempt to make my own, with the help of my sister who is a great seamstress. We drank Chai tea as cats ran around while we worked.
It was a great Spooky Saturday!
