Hullo! Boootiful goodies! Please count me in! I am a follower, and I have also posted about this here:

http://shadowedpaths.blogspot.com/2011/03/easterween.html

My favourite costume was that of the ghost... the easiest and most fun! I was not allowed to dress up as vampire or witch because back then it was not a custom to do this, but I tried my best to be spooky:)

Jim Tripp said...

Thanks so much for the step by step examples of these sweet ornaments.

Bibb said...

ooooooooo!! I love all the giveaways, and the WIP pictures are so inspiring! My favorite Halloween costume when I was little was DUH the Bionic Woman - wasn't that everyone's?!? Had the claustrophobic plastic mask with tiny nostril and mouth slits that made you sound like Darth Vader when you breathed, and the crunchy plastic, tie-in-the-back body suit. I provided the sound effects when I jumped (WAAWAAWAAWAAA) myself. Anyhoot - love the stuff, love the blog (I'm a follower)!

kathy mc said...

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. What a wonderful array of ornaments. Who wouldn't want to win all of these treasures! I am already a follower. Found you through OWOH. I'm afraid my custume as a child was nothing spectacular, a hobo. I loved it cause I could wear torn up clothes and get dirty. I would be more than happy to add your link to my blog,

My favorite costume was when I got to dress up like a race car driver (my Dad drove at a local racetrack). He let me wear his helmet and his grubby overalls that had his name on the back. I was so proud! But what I also remember was that my Mom had to put a towel over the car's seat so I wouldn't get it all greasy. My brother & sisters kept complaining that I stunk like oil and my sister kept saying I was getting her pink tutu all dirty... LOL What memories!!

just me said...

My favorite costume as a kid was the year I was a gypsy. I had these huge metal earrings. My folks did not believe in pierced ears so those earrings were too cool! But when using farm grade fencing wire the fun was done about half way through!
Will post to my sidebar.

oh these goodies are absolutely wonderful..I am a follower and will gladly add this to my sidebar..and I would love to be entered in this wonderful giveaway..Halloween is my favorite season to decorate..and these would be welcome additions to my home this halloween..I would have to say my favorite costume was my gypsy costume..I remember the skirt..

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Now a follower, I am happy to say that I am happy to have found you folk. Gosh, looking at all of the talented WIPs, I am almost tempted to drop everything I am working on and start sculpting. I am forcing myself not to, however. Later maybe. Well my bestest costume was in a school play in grade 4. In those days (late 50s) they had crepe paper in wide rolls like real fabric (maybe 24 inches or so wide) and in long lengths...so you could actually make a whole costume from the paper. You could cut it like cloth and do almost anything to it because it was SOOOO strong. I walked home in the pouring rain wearing my costume and really the only damage was that the colors ran a bit. But the costume held together. I was a sunflower I think. Bright yellow petals with that (let me see...as I reach to grab a pencil crayon...in the 'Laurentian' line of crayon it is called DEEP GREEN No.9) dark green like a pine tree, leaves and a brown stem. It was a Halloween play about I forget what.
Anyway, I'm grabbin' your badge and link now. *smiles* Norma

Caroline said...

Wonderful ornaments and like seeing the wip's! I don't have a favorite costume that I can remember as a kid (sorry) but a huge Halloween fan now.

Caroline said...

Follower too :D

JoAnne said...

You Halloween Queens rock!!!! Another awesome giveaway.
My favorite costume was a gypsy. I loved all the layers of fun, funky clothing, the scarf wrapped around my head and all the bangles.It was a costume as a kid but I kind of grew into the modified version in my every day adult life-lol.A little gypsy in my soul....
Already a follower.
Will post on my blog.

LyndaB said...

I'm a follower. :) My favorite costume growing up was a gypsy - Mom donated one of her full skirted dresses and embroidered rows of bright floss around the skirt to brighten it up. A wig (sooo fun for the little girl with the pixie cut hair), a scarf, a black lace scarf. I thought I was so exotic and glamorous. :)

Ms. Howdy said...

Love you guys! Thanks for being so generous! I especially love the WIPs - a little insight into the creative process.

My favorite costume as a child was a creepy vampire. I loved horror movies even then, and my Mom would find me a creepy old-fashioned dress and my Dad would help with the makeup. I loved it!

Primitive Echoes said...

Wow,,,,I am shocked, your creations are amazing. I don't even know what to say.
I am a new follower and would love to be entered into your giveaway.
I don't really have a favorite costume as a kid as there were a lot of us so my mom would get us those plastic masks that you could only where for a short time and then couldn't breath. There wasn't enough money for costumes for all, but we had a lot of fun.
I am posting this on my blog and it will be my pleasure as your giveaway is ...........

debbieluttrell said...

Wow, what wonderful ornies. I would love to win the basket full, or even one of them. It's great how you posted WIP photos. Those are always fun.
My favorite costume as a child was the year I dressed as a hippie. We were really poor, so we always had to make our own costumes, but back then, most people did. All I had to do was borrow a pair of jean cut-off shorts from one of my brothers, use a burnt cork to make a beard and mustache, tie a leather strip around my forehead, and wear a tye-dyed t-shirt and sandals. It was really warm that year. Most years, we needed a coat.

Hi Goulie Girls! What a great give away!
My favorite costume as a kid was inspired by Dr. Doolittle. In the fifth grade I made a pushme-pullyou and convinced a friend to go with me. We had a great time and got a lot of funny looks and comments! We traded walking backwards.
I am also signing up to follow your blog and posting on my hive blog.
Thanks for such a great give away.

Merry Meet my sisters. What a great giveaway. I am writing to let you know that I have:

Joined as a subscriber and follower
I have posted on my blog in both a post and in my giveaway section
and my favourite costume as a child was Cinderella. This was in the days when we could walk through the halls of apartment buildings and go door to door. My DAD made me a pumpkin coach with all the horses made of pipe cleaners. I pulled all this door to door in a little red wagon balancing on my first high heel shoes that were made of glass (plastic really but they looked like glass). I was 3 years old and I think my Dad had as much fun as I did.

I have been wanting a Halloween tree for many years now and this would be a great start for that tree. It's my fave holiday!

Thank you for this ~ How very fun!

My costume... hmmm... my father was a physician, and had in his possession a human skull, so I donned a sheet onto which I had stitched a red puddle (to simulate blood) at the top and carried the skull, going as the headless horseman. (We lived in upstate NY, so this was geographically appropriate, as well.) I didn't cut eyeholes in the sheet because it had to go back on my bed when I was done. Being upstate NY, it rained, which made my "bloodstain" run all over. This, alas, did not make it look more like blood. It made me look like a (nearly blind) pink ghost.

heartlandprims said...

I am so excited at to find this blog!! Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and as a child, I loved being a creature of the night...I was always a vampiress!! Fangs and all...it was always great fun. Please count me in for your giveaway.

magikalseasons said...

First of all I loved seeing all the wips! It's wonderful to see the artists/queens process! Thanks for sharing that with us.
My favorite costume was a green-faced haggy Witch. I was in 4th grade and I got to pick out my own very adult and scary Witch mask. I wore a red wig that was my moms. Yep she wore wigs back in the day. I also wore her black mini dress, for me it was long.
Please throw my name in the Witches hat these treats are wicked! Becca

T.L. Holmes Williams said...

My fave Halloween costume as a kid...hmmmm...difficult to choose just one! Let's go with picnic table. Using a box, we took off the flaps, cut a hole in the top for my body and attached red suspenders to hold it on my body. A red and white checkered tablecloth was glued to the box (a hole in that, too). Plastic plates, napkins, utensils cups all glued on; I wore a plaid shirt and attached a cardboard "handle" to my arm (my body was a "thermos" sitting on the table). It was fun!! One of the best parts of growing up in the 70s...we MADE our own costumes instead of buying them :D

My favorite costume as kid was a ghost costume my Dad made for me. It was just a white sheet, but it had orange yarn braids sewn to the head and freckles on it. Great memory.

The Traveler said...

My favorite costume was the year I was She-ra. I wouldn't take it off after I got back from trick or treating, and then wore it every day after school for a month.

A Magical Whimsy said...

All of the ornies are amazingly made.
But my favorite is Tammy's of Light and Shadows, moon ornament. I have always been drawn to moon sculptures.

My favorite costume to wear was a kimono that was a royal blue color with rich red and pink flowers designed. I was eleven and my mother put my hair up into a French roll with black varnished chop sticks, and I wore red lip stick and held a Japanese fan. I got lots of 'ooohs!' and 'ahhh's' as my hair was jet black and my mother told me I looked like a young Elizabeth Taylor.
Fun memories!

I have always loved creepy cool stuff, and Hallowe'en. I think my favorite costume was when my Dad painted my face up like Gene Simmons, but in black and red. I called it my KISS demon. I wore a really cool all black outfit, and even spit blood, like the original Demon himself. (I loved KISS) It was a great time. =)

My favorite costume as a kid was my take on Gene Simmons. My Dad painted my face red in his pattern, only red and black, and I made a cool outfit to match.

Love You To The Moon And Back said...

How fun! Another giveaway from some VERY talented artists. I can't remember my first costume as a child but I can remember that night well. I was with my best friend and two boys started chasing us and saying they were going to get our candy. My house was only a block away but my friend was scared to run home alone so I ran with her 5 blocks instead.They were right on our heels. We were two scared chickens when we got there.It is funny now but needless to say they had us crying.LOL We knew who the boys were but still gave us chills to know they were going to get us.

Oh my gosh~ I think I would go into shock if I won! Soooo exciting!

My favorite costume has to be the gypsy costume I wore 3 years in a row. I had this dress that was so cool in my eyes-it had this unique collar. I had a little bandana that I wore in my hair and a big gold hoop earring. (No-no eye patch-that would have been a pirate. hee hee!)

Crossing my fingers AND my toes!

1. My favorite costume as a child was a skeleton. My grandma used to paint my face white and then use coal to draw circles around my eyes and “teeth” on my lips. I loved running after my friends telling them I was a “Cuco” the boogeyman.

#1. Hmmm, my favorite costume when I was a child was Wonder Woman. The clothes were plastic and tied in the back. I had to wear the mask of her face with those too small eye cut outs. I want to be her again someday:)

Oh, I got so excited I forgot to mention my favorite costume as a child was a witch! I almost always went as a witch...and still do~

Jane S. said...

Wow! Look at all the cool stuff!!

When I was a kid I only had one Halloween costume, and I wore it every single year. It was a witch -- ugly molded plastic mask with eyeholes and a mouth hole, a hat, a cape. It was pretty lame, but then again we were only allowed to go to the immediate neighbors houses, so I guess it worked out okay. My sister wore it every year after I outgrew it.

My favorite costume was sewn by my mother when I was about 10. It was a clown outfit and I loved it.8>)

One of my favorite costumes was an astronaut costume with plastic mask. My big brother was an astronaut and I wanted to be just like him. He was SO annoyed that I was copying him, so Mom found a different astronaut costume so we didn't match. He was much happier but I was over the moon! Best Halloween ever as a child...

What fantastic ornaments, and wonderful artists! I am a follower, and all my Halloween loving friends know your site. As a child, I always went dressed as a Gypsy on Halloween, and 53 years later...at my Halloween party last year I was a Gypsy..what fun! In honor of this special giveaway, I composed a poem:

HALLOWEEN GYPSY
by Anne Stevenson

The first of October when the stores began to fill
With witches and goblins, it gave us a thrill-
We waited excitedly for that night to come
Counting the days off, till October 31-
Our costume had to be just right
Wanting to Trick or Treat with a fright-
I put mine together with the utmost care
Always a Gypsy, but one that didn't scare-
The bandana came from Woolworth's store
And the colorful sheer skirt in layers galore-
An old fringed scarf tied at the waist
The brocade vest, up the front it was laced-
Bracelets and earrings dangling in gold
I was ready for any fortune to be told-
Mom put my makeup on, Tangee lipstick bright red
I knew I looked great and had nothing to dread-
Grabbing my orange cloth Trick or Treat bag
The one with a goblin and Halloween hag-
Soon it would fill with treats large and small
Mary Janes, wax lips, Mrs. Brown's popcorn balls-
Living near a graveyard was the best part
The night was bewitching, from the very start-
Halloween was always crisp and chilly
Remembering the fun, we were all so silly-
At the end of the night, tired with feet sore
It was fun coming home, dumping our loot on the floor-
What I wouldn't give to turn back the clock
Eight again, dressed as a Gypsy...the best on the block!!

These ornaments are fabulous. I'd love to win. My favorite costume as a child was a witch with a hump back, I came in second in Best Costume at my school.

How am I just now finding out about this wonderful blog? AWESOME! Let's see ... one time I dressed as a bowling accident, with a big ball that was cut in half and glued to the back of a bowling shirt, with fake blood all around it.
