It’s the first day of the scariest month of the year! I’m not a huge fan of all the creepy, spooky stuff surrounding Halloween, but I do love candy!

You wouldn’t believe my first and only experience in a haunted house.
Ok, you really wanna know? When I was about 11 or 12, I went to Lagoon for Frightmares (Lagoon is an amusement park and Frightmares is when the park is taken over by all things Halloween). They had a few haunted houses you could go to, and I went in one with my dad and younger brother. A few minutes in, both me and my younger brother were pretty scared (I remember a human head being on a table), so we took the emergency exit. I’ve never been to a haunted house since. I just can’t muster the courage.
I’m too easily spooked, and I can’t get stuff out of my mind. I can’t watch scary movies…at all. If I watch even one scene, I’ll be up all night. During the day I’ll check over my shoulder to make sure nothing is there. Like, I’m genuinely paranoid.
But I think it’s fun to do a little dressing up and make some Halloween treats.
I am loving the edits you can do in PicMonkey* to take an ordinary photo and make it look like the person spent hours in a makeup chair. Take a look at the edits I did on my baby girl for Dia de los Muertos.
I know this would actually be more appropriate one month from now on November 1st, which is Dia de los Muertos, but I thought it looked like a fun one.
The effect I did on my toddler is almost too much for me to handle. I might be creeped out for the next few days.
You see?! It’s spooky!! She could be a really convincing vampire!
Here’s to the next 31 days of Fall fun and Halloween festivities!
