What will the Mannequin wear this year for Halloween?

What will the Mannequin wear this year for Halloween?

Every year we host the neighborhood Halloween party and to remind everyone, my mannequin dresses up as she holds a sign.

Of course all of her outfits are found at a thrift store.

I didn’t really think it was that big of deal until last year I had at least 30 cars (that I saw) stop by our front yard, roll down their car window and take a picture with their phone.  I am surprised she didn’t go viral!

The funny thing is that I have had neighbors that I have never met, ask me if I am dressing up my mannequin this year.

A few months ago, while thrifting, I found her costume for this year.   Can’t wait to show you!!!! (on Halloween)

 

Rita Garcia, with FOX26 Houston News, wore the witch outfit for one of our segments and I have to say she looks STUNNING!!!

I love a Halloween party with a “theme”, it makes dressing up in a ridiculous costume seem somewhat normal.

This Duck Dynasty family halloween costume is fun for both the adults and the children

Super, super easy project!!!

First of all apply the paint in a vertical direction, let it dry one hour and then apply in a horizontal direction.

Paint vertical, let dry one hour, then paint horizontal

Not only can you use this tray as a chalk board but it is also magnetic!

I made a bow out of a mens tie and applied it with a hot glue gun.

We found this hard back suitcase at the Conroe Assistance League for $3.99

I had seen a personalized suitcase at our last cheer event (for $100!) so I decided to do our own!

I primed the suitcase, sprayed it with NEON paint and then personalized it!
