Halloween Masques

In two weeks my lovely Mother and Brother are making the trip up from Georgia to visit me in Massachusetts. I am beyond ecstatic. While Mother has visited once before, Brother has never been to visit me since I moved to MA over 2 years ago. I am excited to share my adorable town with him, and let him see how different New England can be when compared to the South.

These folks are visiting me during the week of Halloween, so I'd like to make sure they have a fun time (and thus encourage them to return!). Whilst wandering through Target the other day, I found some things that I felt would drastically enhance this upcoming visit. Looking back, this logic was probably nonsensical, but at the time, it seemed quite important to my cause. Cue the fabulous Halloween masks!

Holy crap! I saw these masks and just HAD TO HAVE THEM! They are so fun! And they were cheap as hell, too.  $12 each for the two large masks*, and just $8 for the smaller white mask. And they have so much detail! I see us donning these lovelies with a fancy Halloween drink in hand while taking part in happy conversation and giving out candy to trick-or-treaters.  :)


I tried to pick out masks that would work for either Mother or Brother or me. I personally love this silver beaked mask!  There are two pieces of elastic in the back that are joined with velcro - so the fit can be custom to each individual's head.

I was thinking of Brother when I picked out this gilded mask.  While it does have rhinestones and lace,  I feel the shape is so masculine that it could work well for him.

I thought Mother might like this dainty mask.  I still cannot get over the detail for only 8 bucks!

Husband Guy refused didn't want to pick out a mask to wear for the Halloween festivities as he wears glasses and didn't feel like having to deal with glasses + mask.  However, he did kindly, briefly model a mask for me while he was also cloaked with a white Sphynx scarf (it's heated!).  <#<#<#

I hope to get some fun photos of us in the masks.  I guess I should be wearing some type of costume as well... Pretty much the only thing I have that is not 'normal clothes' is my Old Reliable Dress - but I won't complain about having to wear it! I like to bring it everywhere, just in the off chance I'll get the opportunity to put it on.

Yay! I'm so exited.
