We made lots of fun and creepy food for the party. Not pictured are the sangria (red wine, so it looked bloody) and the mummy dogs, which actually were the hit of the party. They were hot dogs wrapped in pie crust. So easy! And yet so popular!
|Adam's ribs. These were really tasty and I would totally make them again.|
|Deviled egg "eyeballs".|
|Cheeseball "pumpkins" and lemon "finger" cookies.|
|Oh no, one of our party guests passed out in the tub!|
|We couldn't find a pumpkin to carve, so we improvised.|
|Our party guests "hanging" out. Ha ha. I slay me.|
We made this floating scary guy out of homemade playdoh. Interestingly enough, it is so humid here that even thought we had baked the face, it basically rehydrated and turned back into squishy dough. It was really gross and I had to throw it away at the end of the night.
Ethan was a robot from the Flight of the Conchords, and I was Vampira from Plan 9 From Outer Space. We took this picture later, when we realized we didn't have pictures of ourselves in costume. Unfortunately, my long black fake fingernails only lasted about an hour. I couldn't do anything with them on, including eat or take pictures, and I got hungry.

|I look just like my floating skeleton! It's like we're twins.|
I actually made that floating skeleton out of homemade playdoh and cheesecloth, by the way.
|Living dead girl.|
|A wrestler and a black angel.|
|Hockey player and redback spider.|
I think the party went pretty well. Everyone seemed to have a good time. And we got to share our homebrew! I enjoyed sharing our traditions with our new friends.
