A purely pictorial post. The theme is costumes since October 31st is just around the corner. (Yay!)

First, some really adorable children’s story character costumes:

Little Hansel and little Gretel.

Three Madelines and a Miss Clavel.

A post-potion Alice.

And some grown-up costumes (I like characters):

image
Mary Poppins and Chimney Sweep Bert.

Fantastic Mr. [and Mrs.] Fox. I love Roald Dahl AND Wes Anderson!

An even simpler variation of the Foxes.

Sometimes you just need a mask and it’s perfect.

The household cats would probably feel left out if they didn’t get to join in:

Beat kitty.

High society kitty.

Now I really want to dress up for Halloween! The sad thing is, this will be the fourth Halloween in our neighborhood and so far we’ve not had one trick or treater at our house! I’m crossing my fingers that this will be the year!
