It all started so innocently.
Ciara's eyes were this big when I started this poncho yesterday afternoon and they were really big when I tied off the fringe this afternoon. What can I say - it was a big gauge. Luckily, the weather is still mild so she could give the poncho a nice autumny trial on the way home today. Pictured on a quaint German street, the Harlot poncho out of Schachenmayr Sportic is draped elegantly over a very scary witch costume. Below is the completed witch:
Didja catch the orange hair on that one? It gets better.
Normally a mild, charming (and very disarming) young man, Cian has just finished his makeover and is on tippy-toes for a view in the hall mirror.
After getting into character, he was unstoppable and insisted on pretending to bite and eat anyone he could find - while making the appropriate biting and hissing noises. He chased me for 10 minutes straight around benches and tables in the Biergarten.
If I didn't know better, I'd think someone gave this child sugar......
Honestly, I'm quite glad that I'm not putting him to sleep after he does Trick or Treating tonight :) He won't be saying that, though. The Germans say "Suess or sonst gibts Saures" which roughly translates to "give us something sweet or you'll get something sour".
No knocks on our door tonight yet - which means my Dove chocolate miniatures are safe for the time being. I might just eat a couple to make sure they're safe for children and all - can't be too careful these days.
Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!
