Monday Lieblings, Halloween Addition

Sadly I’m not really celebrating Halloween this year, but I’m still in the semi-spirit, so this will be a Halloween themed Libelings rampage.

1) My Annual BYOP parties.

This was from last year- to be fair there have only been two annual BYOP (that stands for bring your own pumpkin, of course) but I sort of always thought they would never end, now I’m in Manchester and lame and they have.

Here are some photos of parties past:

The spread from the first ever BYOP party- back when I just made small amounts of cupcakes for parties.

Note, in the photo above, my super-cool cut-out pumpkin- I used bat and ghost cookie cutters to make it, it was beautiful.

Yes, that pumpkin says “Lacan”- I was way into my Lacan seminar at this point, and I got drunk by myself while waiting for everyone to arrive at the party.  So this happened. A Lacan Pumpkin…. (I will give a prize of cupcakes to anyone who can come up with a truly good pun about this Lacan Pumpkin)

2) Speaking of Cupcakes………

Halloween themed cupcakes! So, as everyone knows I like to make cupcakes, a lot.  A lot of cupcakes a lot.  I haven’t baked ANYTHING here in Manchester yet, and I’m dying inside. I’ve been too lazy to go buy all the bakeware I would need, and my oven doesn’t work. I am so sad and lost. Anyway, my cupcake-decorating skills are greatly lacking, so I like these zombie cupcakes that seem pretty easy to make.

and I like the minimalism of this mummy cupcake:

3)  Questionable Halloween Costumes

One of Grant’s friends took a bunch of photos of odd costumes, check some out:

I don't think this boy realizes he is a future gold medalist.

Have I been reading too much Klein, or is this not the freakin' creepiest thing ever????

4) Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart IS Halloween, bitches.

5) A semi-new Halloween classic……

So I’m in the UK and NBC patrols youtube- thats as much Werewolf Bar Mitzvah as I can give you, I’m sure you all know it anyway.
