Halloween in Kuala Lumpur

When I was a kid, Halloween was  a non-event for us. Don’t get me wrong. We knew about it  but Halloween to us was synonymous to catching the latest scary movie at the cinema. That’s it. Fast forward to today, times have indeed changed and my kids look forward to Halloween each year. If you ask me, it’s way too commercialized! As tempted I was to get Ashley a witch’s outfit and Aidan a skeleton outfit which were going to cost me RM160, I decided against it. But I must admit –  I almost caved in. When I thought about how they’d only wear it for a year and then 6 months down the road , setting it aside to be given away, errr nahhh…! I told the kids to go back and look through their closets and think of something to wear to school on Halloween Day. They could look into my closet if they needed to. Ashley did.

Anyway, here’s the weekend before Halloween….I got her a rm11.90 witch hat because there was no way I could have come out with one from my closet 🙂

Even lil witches need to read to learn up on potions and spells don’t they? (and in case you’re wondering, yes, she wore the hat out the whole time)

The 2 lil rascals….(Aidan and Aaron)

And on Halloween Day (which was a school day), they wore this to school…

Everything on Ashley are hers except for my shawl she was wearing. The shawl was supposed to mimick the witch’s cloak but I had to make it shorter so that it would not be of an inconvenience to her at school.

Aidan wore his Superman pyjamas to school. LOL!

 And when I picked them up from school, the shawl was wrapped around the hat – which I thought gave it a more dramatic effect. I like.

So what did you all do for Halloween?
