Halloween Fun

Our family loves Halloween and I love to make our home feel like the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. Here are my 3 hitch hiking ghosts, Phineas, Ezra and Moe, that I got on disney.com a few years ago. I also play the ride's soundtrack while I am on the porch.
Here is my hubby helping Sheridan carve her dragon Pumpkin.
Here I am as a ghost in our graveyard on our front lawn. I am dressed in a white dress and I have 10 yards of white irridecent tulle attached to a white cape. I walk around on our front porch with a black light on me and I pass out candy. It's so funny when people don't believe I am real and ask to touch me to see if I am. Here is a video of me in action down below.


Sheridan was a Madagascar Penguin (Private) and Chasen was a scary clown. Our left over candy will be donated to Operation Gratitude and sent to the troops. Local dentist also donate $1 to your school's PTA for every pound that is donated.
Here is my video that my 16 year old shot...

That is so cool!!! I'm wondering where you put the blacklight though... is this costume movable? I dont have a porch but I HAVE TO try this LOL!

I was inspired by the MS costume I saw for $150 in a catalog. I put this one together for about $40. I bought a cheap costume with a white polyester dress and a white poly cape. I cut the tulle in long strips and attached it to the cape so the tulle looked like a hood as well. I wore cream white make up from WalMart and some sparkle powder. The black light is a bar style and I just laid it on an empty plant stand facing me. I danced and moved to the Haunted Mansion ride soundtrack and pretended like I was a young girl looking for her fiance, Phillip. The teen boys really get in to the story line. I did this last year and it was such a hit, I did it again. I think I have a new tradition.

Oh I love it! I am going to do this next year too. Super idea and I always love to scare kids so this will work. I'm going to do the whole lawn a grave yard and have different "ghost" floating around then I'll come to life when they walk up. LOL
