As of this posting, 15 hours remain until the Kickstarter is CLOSED! We are currently $27 short of $4k, which is absolutely amazing! Thank you to everyone that has contributed thus far – it’s been an incredibly exciting October! If you’d like to become a backer and get the books at the 20% off Kickstarter discount, NOW is the time!!
It is Halloween, and unfortunately I’ve been so busy that my costume is a bit behind in production. As we speak, the paper mache is drying on my mask. Not sure if it will be ready to paint by the time the kids come by, but I’ve already got PLANS for it beyond the holiday. I do so love my plans.
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I’d plan my costume a year in advance, plotting and scheming, revising and redesigning. I learned how to sew in order to start making them myself. Prior to that, my mother had always contributed her considerable seamstress abilities. These days I’m so busy that my costumes have gotten less elaborate, but my fondness for the imagination and creativity of Halloween remains. I was a hold-out on trick-or-treating until college (too old for it? Bah!) at which point I switched over to hosting parties. This year, we’re just going to hold down the fort quietly. Too much excitement lately for a party, but I’m hopeful for next year.
What do you do on Halloween? Or if you don’t have Halloween in your country, is there a holiday that’s similar? What is that like?
