I let the look sink in for a while, but then it was time to run some errands. I wanted to pick up some items to make some fun goodies for my family to enjoy. My mom wanted me to wear my look out in the world while running errands, and I was about to, but being kind of the reserved and conserved person I am, I took a makeup remover wipe to my face before I left the house. While we were out, almost everyday wore their costumes. The adults wore their costumes while going grocery shopping. I totally should have kept my first look, I care too much about what people think. I need to fix that. While we were at WinCo, we saw The Joker from Batman. The Joker and his wife came out of WinCo after us, and as we walked out the door of WinCo, I caught The Joker out of the corner of my eye and asked my mom, "It's behind us isn't it?" She just started laughing. We made a stop at Starbucks because for today only, they offered Franken Frappes for only $3! I had to grab one, and it was so good. It tasted like green tea, with dark chocolate bits, and infused mint.
As soon as we got home, I began making my Scarecrow Mix, and Muddy Buddies. I was multitasking because I was putting together the goodies, and putting together my second porcelain doll look. I used the same makeup for the second look, the only thing different was the eye design. To be honest, I like the first porcelain doll look better than this second one. I was attempting to draw lashes with this second look. I still love this second look, and it drew a lot of attention on social media, and the trick-or-treaters were pretty intrigued with the look as well. Let's hope it wins me some contests :)
We watched Monster's Inc while handing out candy, and snacking on Scarecrow Mix and Halloween Muddy Buddies. Dad made steak and stir fry for my mom's birthday dinner, and we transitioned into watching Property Brothers. It was a pretty great Halloween.
We ended up with 33 trick-or-treaters. I predicted that there was going to be a lot more, but since it is Friday night, that means football games, so a lot of the little trick-or-treaters were probably watching a football game instead or the big Blazer game instead of collecting candy. Surprisingly, out of 33 trick-or-treaters, we only had one little girl dress up Elsa from Frozen. I was expecting a lot more Elsas. But alas, we only had one.
It was such a fun day. There was a tragedy this evening in the Portland Metro area. There was a massive car crash toward the Gresham area on Division St. I reminded every trick-or-treater that came to our door to stay safe. I hope everyone else had a safe evening.
