Feeling a little rough this morning but my Halloween bash was successful!
I was impressed with myself that I put together the four Pinterest items I had set out to do.
Item one: The floating ghost
This one was very time consuming. I used spray starch I picked up from Walmart and two packages of cheesecloth I found at the grocery store.
Being a hairdresser I had a mannequin head lying around. I used the mannequin as the head form and my camera tripod and the arms. I overlapped the cheesecloth on the head and draped one side over the tripod to act as an arm. I sprayed the crap out of the fabric on the head and arm area. I rigged a fan to help it dry while I did other things. Flipping this four times total and about six hours later it was done.
Doesn’t look the greatest but it worked.
Would I do it again?
Item 2: Spooky witch fingers
I’m not exactly sure how I feel about these cookies in general. Aside from my “fingers” looking like ill deformed toes they tasted alright. The recipe itself was dry and crumbly. It suggested I roll them out and cut them. I should have rolled them like a finger.
Will I make them again? Sure with a few changes and use my own sugar cookie recipe.
Item 3: Hot Dog Mummies
Item 4: Swamp Water
Apologies for the horrible picture of my version. This here was my drink of the night. The recipe was a virgin one but I added some raspberry vodka which tasted so good… Too good in fact.
Would I make this again? Hell yes!
