    My friend’s son went as a ‘head’ last year – a ‘table’ body and his ‘dead head’ the star on top with a dinner platter suspended above. It was brilliant.

    This is such a fantastic round up of Halloween parties, BTW >>> almost makes me want to have one!!

    A boy from our street went as ‘Tony Abbott – Malcolm Turnbull’s worst nightmare’. I don’t think he understood the meaning of the costume, all the adults had a cheeky giggle.

  • kate says:

    Oooh that patel pink skull is awesome!

    One of my twins is heavily into special effects make-up so one Halloween she did makeup to look like she had all kinds of nails and glass sticking out of her face… so creepy!
