Well, our Potter party is in 2 days! I have managed to dye my hair a lovely shade of garnet (meh) and found the perfect apron to wear as Molly.
In my search for party decorations I visited two Halloween stores. Boy, is Halloween a racket! It's kind of surreal to go into the shops while they're still unpacking. Boxes litter the floor with werewolf arms and legs, spiders are tumbled in another corner, while the mechanized gravestones screech and moan around you. I'm not sure what I'll do with a glitter spiderweb tattoo or gloves that have long, pointed fingertip extensions, but I bought them anyway. I guess I can see why the stores are so successful!
