Dinosaur Iron Man Skeleton

Iron Man

Last year Hoss was a bloody skeleton. Sprout was a dinosaur (if you scroll thru Oct '10 posts you can see them).

Sprout was determined to 'copy' big brother and be a skeleton this year. Then he said he wanted to be a ghost skeleton. I told him ghosts don't have bones. He said 'dinosaurs do'. Thus the birth of the dino skeleton, then he figured he would add to that and be a dinosaur iron man skeleton.

A hoodie. White felt and fabric glue = BAM! Costume.
I used blue glitter glue to add just a little something more to the bones. I sewed the skull, back bones and tail to the hoodie (you can easily just glue it all down).

Sorry the pics aren't all that, I took w/ my phone.

1 of a kind costume ideas

This is such an awesome idea!
With 1 wk til Halloween, what are you going to be? Don't know? Well, try this...

Write on little sheets of paper - nouns
Write on little sheets of paper - adjectives

Put the nouns in a bowl and put the adjectives in another bowl.

Mix'em up.

Pick 1 from each bowl.


Grumpy Mermaid
Elderly Zombie
Pregnant Vampire
Bedazzled Trucker (Love this one!)

More is MORE

It's that time of year again...
2 weeks out and it is time to start
'test driving' the Halloween makeup

See what works.
What needs to be changed.

What you see:
facial tattoo
dark green/purple makeup
hair falls.

What are hair falls?

I referred to them (before googling them) as
yarn hair thingies.

My hair is too short/thin for them to go in like they are s'pose too, so I am gunna have figure something out.
Ok, this 'look' is similar to Cyber Goth.

What did we do Friday?

Gabriel Iglesias!
A comedian god!!!

I was late to the game to buy tickets, SOLD OUT rather quickly.
But thanks to the radio gods, I won tickets-
not just tickets, but
MEET and GREET tickets!

We didn't bring a chocolate cake,
but a wonderful brownie thingy.

We had on our Hawaiian shirts to Represent, Yo!

It was a great show.
Very funny!
Our cheeks hurt.

Moving On...

I've grown tired of the hamster wheel (a.k.a treadmill).

I've moved on...

I like the bike.
I've been doing 8 - 12 miles,
then I do weights (about 15-20 minutes).

It's fun.
It's just as tiring.
It's easier on my joints.
and I burn the same if not more calories.

I also, enjoy the 'Me Time, 1-1.5hrs'.
No kids screaming/fighting.
No needy hubs 'Wheres_______?'
