Costumes, Choreography, and Cookies

October is almost gone, which means that my favorite holiday is almost upon us: Halloween! If you follow my Instagram, you already know that I have been decorating up a storm at my new place - stringing twinkly lights and autumn garlands, putting out figurines and witches hats, carving pumpkins and brewing apple cider.

This year in lieu of my normal All Hallow's Eve Mystery Party I will instead be attending a Night Circus Soiree.  My costume is well underway, all black and white with circus reminiscent stripes on the main skirt.  I have yet to figure out what or where I will put my Reveur's red accent but that shouldn't be too difficult to figure out.  Pictures will be posted to Instagram for anyone interested in seeing how it ends up :)

A couple of my aerial friends and I are beginning choreography for a silks and/or aerial rope duet (possibly group) piece.  If we ever get this circus tent completed we'll even have a place to perform the piece once it's done and we've had a chance to practice it.  Even if we're unable to perform it, we'll probably get a few videos of it to share.

Last but not least for this well overdue update: COOKIES! Below is a pic from my first foray into cookie decorating. Pretty cute, if I do say so myself!

The Witch is IN

Halloween is coming, and I finally - finally - had a chance to do a bit of house work in preparation. And by housework I mean pulling out the tubs of Halloween decorations I've collected over the years and start going crazy while listening to my All Hallows Eve music mix. So far I've decorated the fireplace (that we're not allowed to use for fire anyways), the stairwell, one of the windows, and a bookshelf, as well as hang one of the wreaths.
