365 Days Of Pinterest - Day 25 - Witches Brewwwwww!!

365 Days of Pinterest Day 25 Witched Brew!!!!!

Did I mention Halloween was my favorite???  I am about to share a family recipe with you that has been passed down ... hmmmm .. it hasn't been passed down yet, but Iv been making it for 16 years and its a huge crowd pleaser so that makes it awesome  :)

WITCHES BREWWWWW!!!  ohh haaa haaa haaa

Oct 31 is my daughters birthday and we've had Halloween bashes with the fam every year.. this is a child friendly brew that foams and grows .. and is sooo soo easy!

What You'll Need
~ A cauldron!  dont skimp out on the cauldron it what puts the witch in the brew
~ plastic fingers, eyeballs .. whatever small appendages you can fund .. but not too small if you have young youngins who may try to eat them or choke on them ... I get my appendages from the $$ store.
~ Cream Soda .. here in Canada cream soda is pink ..  where my family lives in New York its white .. so if you cant find a pink pop get an orange pop .. or add some green food dye to sprite .. 
~ Rainbow Sherbet
~ I like to use spooky glass to .. I got mine from Spirit Halloween and my $$ store

I like to put on a show .. I mix the brew infront of the kids like a witch concocting a potion .. "First I add the eye of newt" .. throw in your eyeballs ... :then a dash of flesh "in go the fingers" .. 

add your pop first and let the kid watch a you add the sherbet because that is what causes the reaction .. the brew will begin to foam and grow!!!  You can say something clever like "bubbly and broil" .. thats not too clever actually.

Stir your mixture a bit and it will really start to bubble up!  take your ladle and spoon into your SPOOOOKY cups!  serve immediately because when the pop gets flat and the sherbet melts completely its pretty much just a sloppy sugary mess ..  enjoy!!!!!

.....  she looks frightened 

cool decor :)

365 Days of Pinterest Day 24 ~ DIY ZOMBIE schoolgirl costume!!!

365 Days of Pinterest Day 24 ~ DIY ZOMBIE schoolgirl costume!!!

ahhh Halloween, I love it so much I even gave birth to my daughter on Oct 31! My little pumpkin .. This costume was actually from last Halloween, but it is my favorite so I want to share... I found a pin on pinteret for the Zombie schoolgirl .. it was a costume from Spirit Halloween.  Of course the skirt was much shorter and the shirt was hiked up past the belly button .. so I scowered the second hand stores in my neighborhood and loved what I came out with 

What you'll need
-'Zombie' Contact Lenses from Spirit Halloween ... you can also purchase them here
-plaid skirt
-white button up
-tall white socks
-little jacked
-neck tie
-fake blood.  I like this kit because it has the blood you can put in your mouth and alo the blood you can splatter on your cloth 
-I used this flesh latex makeup on my hubby .. really easy to use
- white grey red and black makeup for shading

original costume from Spirit

The contacts are what really made the costume complete.  There are some cheaper brands then the link I provided above, but they are not as thick so the color is not as strong.  Its worth it to invest in the good ones, not only for the color, but they are thicker and less likely to tear .. they also last for 3 years if stored properly where the others last for 21 day .. 

 face .. I started with my normal makeup and then applied white and grey to my skin .. black and then red around the eyes .. black at the cheekbone for the unkin in look .. then comes the blood .. I flicked it on my face for the splattered I just bit into a juicy leg effect and then dripped it out of my mouth.

the steps are pretty basic ... cut up your close creating frays and jagged edged .. splatter with blood ... wa laaaaa!!

I ate my husband wish didn't make much sense because zombies dont eat zombies .. but ok 

my sister in law is awesome!!!

this was my daughters dead rag doll costume from a few years back .. pretty fun ")
