Randomosity on Fridays: November, November

The first week of November has past, and I am already abysmally behind with my NaNo word count. You can all see my shameful wordage on the sidebar there. It's okay though because I'm not daunted! (This is how I start all NaNos - that is, with optimism.)

Okay, the real reason I'm behind is because I've been watching True Blood. Yeah, I finally jumped on the bandwagon. You may recall, my friends' Halloween costumes were True Blood-related, so I had to begin the series. It's a lot funnier than I thought it'd be and quite addictive.

ANYWAY, Friday 5 and Halloween pictures. :)

1. Being a wind-up doll requires more work than I originally thought. Must make improvements to wind-up key in future. I'm wearing like a million necklaces. All in all though, the costume was a success!

2. I have a lot of friends with November birthdays. It makes the holiday season very fun, but also very difficult when it comes to gift buying. Time moves by in a rush starting like now.

3. Luce has hidden talents. She sewed the double skirt of my sister's Peter Pan costume AND crocheted a cowl-scarf in 2 hours!

4. This is turning out to be like my luckiest year ever! I won 3 books recently, including a signed copy of SHIVER. (Thanks Tahereh & Sherrie!!!) I should go buy some lottery tickets.

5. And pictures pictures pictures!
Dancer at the Edison

Inventor and Doll

Beel and Sookeh (or Bill & Sookie, if you prefer)

Steampunkers & Bill: partying 1800s style

Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween! Now onwards to a glorious November! Those of you doing NaNo, push on! How are your Novembers looking?

P.S. Have you seen this Poem of Novels / A Poem for a Fallen Angel on Tahereh's blog? It's awesome! I love it!

Adorable! I was hoping you'd have pics up today. I love your wind-up costume. Looks like y'all had lots of fun!

>Beel and Sookeh

ROFL!!! oh, god, they really do sound like that don't they? the show isn't really my cuppa, apart from being weirdly hilarious, so I don't watch it, have just seen enough to appreciate that line.
thank you so much for that, really made my night:)
and now I'm going to go watch Zombieland, which friends have assured me is def. hilarious rather than serious.

Awesome pictures! And good luck with NaNo--I know you'll catch up.

Melissa said...

Don't give up on NaNo! You can catch up still.

Holy Luce is talented!

I ADORE your pictures. Being a windup doll is the coolest thing ever!!

Lydia Kang said...

It looks like you had such a fun time! Those costumes were so creative!
I really liked that crocheted cowl, btw!

Emy Shin said...

You guys look absolutely adorable in the pictures. I love the costumes (now I'm curious where some of them are from).

I'm also terribly behind on NaNo, but don't give up! We can both do it!

Beverly Ealdama said...

nice costumes!! that guy makes a really good beel!

Christina Lee said...

Well, if it b/c of True Blood,then all is forgiven :-)

Krispy said...

David- They do! It's hilarious. The show's a little over the top, but I think it's really fun and it's interesting. Glad it made your night. I need to see Zombieland; heard it's good.

Melissa- I'm still NaNoing! I will let Luce you think she has skills too. Thanks for costume appreciation!

Lydia- Thanks! I need to learn to crochet!

Emy- The only recognizable characters are Bill and Sookie. They're from True Blood.
