  8. My mother made my sister and I the most AMAZING Halloween costumes every year. One year we were Raggedy Ann and Andy - complete with wigs made from crepe paper! I think my favorite was the year we were Sylvester and Tweetie from Looney Toons - these were complete head to toe suits make of felt and faux fur. She was an amazing seamstress!

  10. I don't dress up, it was hard growing up a fat book nerd so that quashed any desire to do it. However, I have this co-worker who's a seamstress and I LOVE hearing about all the costumes and stuff she's made. I also so saw this costume a couple of years ago and haven't forgotten it. It's the first costume that comes to mind specifically.

      OMG, those costumes sound SO FUNNY!! Lol. Especially the marshmallow man. And you guys even played the theme song from the movie! AWESOME!! That's one of my favorite movies, BTW.

      I like Halloween, although not the gory or scary aspects of it. I prefer stuff like "Ghostbusters". And, as you can see from the books I've featured here, I prefer to read PNR and UF, with humor included.

  24. Thank you for the amazing giveaway, Maria! My favorite costume that I wore was Cruella de Vil; we had a costume party at the laboratory I worked at, and I won! I definitely went all out with the costume and was completely in character. It was so much fun. And my favorite costume that Mckenzie wore was an adorable Piglet costume that my mom sewed for her. She was only 2 1/2 and she told everyone she was "Pliget" instead of Piglet. A favorite memory for sure. Thank you again for the chance! Happy fall and happy reading! Love you!! <3 <3 <3

    1. Hi, Michele!

      You're more than welcome for the giveaway!! <3 <3

      I have given my readers some suggestions for books they could choose, but whoever wins can pick any Halloween-related book they want. I myself prefer funny PNR and UF books, but if someone wants a creepy book, then that's what I'll order for them. :)

      OMG, you were Cruella de Vil? And you being such a kind person! Lol. How original!! I'm sure it was a LOT of fun! I wish I could have seen you in that costume! AWESOME!! :)

      I also wish I could have seen Mckenzie dressed up as Piglet. And how CUTE that she pronounced the name "Pliget" instead!! SO ADORABLE!! Yes, that is indeed a memory to treasure!! <3 <3

      You're welcome again for the chance!! Happy fall and happy reading to you, too! Love you guys to Vulcan and back!! SUPER TACKLE HUGS TO YOU & MCKENZIE!!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  25. I think the best Halloween costume I have ever seen is someone who went as a box of wine... Complete with a spigot and wine. Very popular girl that night, had to keep refilling her wine supply.

    1. Hi, Amy!

      Oh, that's SO HILARIOUS!!! :) :) That girl should have won a prize! That was a VERY original costume! I can see how she would have been very popular that night! Lol.

      I'm so glad you like my header! Yes, it IS very cute, isn't it? I LOVE the expression on the pumpkin's face! And the black kitten is SO ADORABLE! Thanks for mentioning this! <3 <3

      I picked this image as my Halloween header because I don't like gory, creepy, or scary scenes for Halloween. As you can see, all of my book suggestions involve humor. But they're just suggestions. The winner can pick any Halloween-related book they want, even if it's creepy. :)

      Thanks so much for the great comment!! <3 <3 :) :)

    1. Hi, Antonela!

      Yeah, I know. Halloween is basically an Anglo-Saxon holiday. Lol. Of course, we Cubans who came to the States celebrate it, too.

      I have a Harry Potter costume that I actually wore on 9/27, when I went to get my hair done, I go to a beauty school near our condo. I heard that the student hairdressers were going to wear costumes, so I decided to wear one, too! Lol.

      Halloween Day itself was not that memorable for me. I had to work, and people there don't wear costumes that often. :( However, there WAS one staff member dressed in an anime costume. She looked GREAT!! I had told my students we would have a party. Half the class came in. But the food was TERRIFIC!! And I wore a little witch hat. Lol.

      Dressing up as the Wicked Witch of the West sounds AWESOME!! I'm sure you would look FABULOUS in such a costume!! :D :D :D

      I'm SO glad you double-checked! And I'm also glad you posted the comment again!!

      ¡Un abrazo bien grande para tí, tambien! ¡Que bueno es tener amistades en otros países!

      A propósito, te pido disculpas, puesto que tú me enviaste un email hace un tiempito atrás, y yo nunca te contesté..... : ( Asi que, ¡me alegro que me enviarás otro muy pronto! La verdad es que no recuerdo dónde puse la dirección de tu correo electrónico...... (baja la cabeza, avergonzada)
