They sell "Sexy Eskimo" costumes these days. Since when do Eskimo Indians hike around the arctic braless, with a hoochie top, booty skirt, and hooker boots?!
Dear Eskimo Lady, Your costume does not appear "sexy". It appears stupid. And unrealistic. Put some pants on. Sincerely.
There are a few things I do to partake in the festivities. We pass out candy to the numerous trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. I put a dish of candy-corns in our home that disappears way too fast. (My weakness!)And we carve pumpkins.
I never was that into pumpkin carving growing up. I always had my Mom do the carving - I just gutted the pumpkins. But since Ryan and I have been together it's been a competitive thing.
He almost always wins.
I am not skilled with a knife. And I don't have the patience to try. I often get bored after 10 minutes of carving so just do a smiley face on the pumpkin. And call it quits....while Ryan sits at the table for hours meticulously carving out this artistic masterpiece.
But this year, I've decided to actually put effort into it. I've already began researching. I picked my pumpkin at the patch last week with wit and great-thought - making sure it had a good "curvature" to carve into.
I. Will. Defeat.
So.....here are a few of the templates I'm looking at. Which lucky template will be the winner?
(Disclaimer...these are still pretty "simple" -- but just know...I am no artist, carv-onista)
I think I'm leaning towards doing the witch? We shall see. I know these are still not that detailed - and many creative ladies out there could "carve me under the table".
But, like I said - I'm typically the standard jack-o-lantern kind of gal!
IF all else fails, ......and things get really rough...........
I can always do this sad little jack-o-lantern!:.......
OR should I say "drunk o lantern"
