I love costumes and makeup, too, which may have something to do with my passion for Halloween. The first year of our marriage, my husband and I threw a costume party. Here's an old Polaroid shot from that event:
The last party we threw I was a space cadet (don't say it!) and he was Zorro.
We developed other Halloween traditions, too. We watch creature features during the month of October, including (always!) Mel Brooks's Young Frankenstein.
However you celebrate this time of year, have a safe and FUN Halloween!
