Night of the dead prom queen and the indecisive blood streaked boy….

October 31, 2009

Halloween is breathing down our necks and Graysen still doesn’t know what he wants to be. His indecision meant that he went to school today all dressed up like a … kindergarten boy. It’s a good, rather consistent look for him.

The girls, however, are both set. Chiara is “Dead Dorothy,” from the Wizard of Oz. We’ll have fun tomorrow night with fake blood and zombie makeup…just as we had fun with the same for Mira tonight, who donned her “Dead Prom Queen” attire for a middle school dance (you know, where the girls cluster against the wall on one side of the room while the boys do the same on the other side of the room, both groups snickering self-consciously while a sad disco ball spins over an empty dance floor….).

But I digress.

After Mira got all gussied up with my help and that of her friend, Rhiannon, Graysen was suddenly struck with inspiration.

“I WANT BLUE EYES AND BLACK LIPS! AND WHITE ON MY FACE AND BLOOD!”
So this is what I did, a last minute thing that made the girls late to the dance:

Mira makes a stunning dead prom queen, if I do say so myself…

Okay, so my girl is just stunning no matter how she’s dressed up….

And Graysen, of course, never fails to amuse. 🙂

I am on pins and needles now, wondering what the boy will truly be tomorrow night. Stay tuned…
