I’ve made some pretty good progress with Dax’s party preparations. His costume is finally finished (yay!), but I will wait to post pictures of it with the party pictures. It came out so cute, complete with red fuzzy poms all over it. He can’t decide if he loves it or hates it, but he had a good time trying to pull the fuzzballs off.
I was planning to paint all five of the gabba pumpkins, but I love the way Muno looks on his own. Especially on the vampire pumpkin stand that we picked up last year from Halloween Express. So cute! Dax and I painted him together yesterday. Muno makes a good vampire, and Dax was so excited when I put him out front. It’s pretty funny from the road too, his eyeball really catches your eye- teehee.
The three glittered candles were a bit tedious to make, but I think they turned out ok. I bought some white pillar candles and used Martha Stewart glitter and glue to apply the colored glitter. I had to use white acrylic paint for plex and muno, b/c after glittering the rest of the candle there was glitter stuck on the unglittered areas. I used tape to section off the stripes for the Brobee candle. Plex was the hardest. I printed out his eyes on adhesive paper, cut them out and stuck them on. I used tape to section off the black glittered area.
The presents were an idea found on gabbafriends.com. We got him a Thomas train table, and I plan on wrapping it as a huge Muno. I scaled and printed the same faces I had created for the buckets and banner.
And finally, the Boo cups. My mom and I planned out the menu this past weekend, and we picked out some Boo-Nilla shakes to serve to the kiddies. I painted these yesterday as well.
In other news, I found my costume at Goodwill! It is going to be pretty funny, I can’t wait to share it…
