Halloween 2019

ACS_2852

I know I’m a little late to posting about Halloween but better late than never in my mind!

This year, I decided to give myself a little Halloween challenge to keep my mind preoccupied and not allow myself to continue to swirl in sadness over the loss of my precious furbaby, Alice. I’m quite happy with the results and it did, indeed, help me to find some extra joy, which is precisely why I gave myself the challenge in the first place. And while I’m still incredibly sad and hurt about losing my best furry friend, this gave me a creative outlet that I so desperately needed.

In most cases, I already had the clothes and wigs to create the looks that I wanted so that I wasn’t being wasteful and buying something for single use. I did order myself two dresses, one for Morticia Addams and the other for Bride of Frankenstein. I ordered them both from Lulus so that I would get multiple uses out of both and boy, are they adorable dresses! I can’t wait to wear them out.

Comment what you dressed up as for Halloween and what your favourite Halloween costume I created this year!

Stay spooky,
Katt xx

Halloween Couples Costumes

IMG_9146

I struck gold on my very first date with Danny. Not only did I find a supporter, cheerleader, confidant, best friend, lover or partner in crime, but I also found a fellow nerd in him. Within the first few months of dating, Danny and I bonded over a lot of things that we both love. One of those things being Halloween. That was over six years ago.

Every year since we have decked the house up full of spoopy Halloween decorations and helped one another with our costumes. We usually end up checking out the local Halloween shops at least three times – some years we have ended up having multiple Halloween costumes because we are that enthused for it. We carve or paint our pumpkins, play festive music, watch several Halloween films, drink hot apple cider and Pumpkin Spice Lattes and we visit the local pumpkin patches multiple times.

I love that he wants to do all of these things with me and that he is equally excited for them! When I told him I wanted to do a post for couples costumes, he didn’t even bat an eye and immediately agreed to join in on my cheesy idea, as long as he got to choose a costume too.

Most of the items we used we actually had in our closets prior to planning this out.

Happy Halloween, cuties! Stay spooky and enjoy!

Gryffindor Wizard and Hufflepuff Witch. This was my idea since I’m the big Harry Potter nerd in this relationship. I’m so happy with how these turned out! You better believe it that when we go to the Wizarding World, these scarves are coming with us!

Friday the 13th. I’m more of the horror film fan and will watch them alone at night and in the dark. He’s not as big of a fan but he’ll still watch them. He does have a big love for monsters so it wasn’t a complete shock when he said he wanted us to do a Friday the 13th look. In regards to his love of monsters, I think we’ve already decided on our costumes for next year!

The final reveal! Jimmy Jr and Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers. These are our actual Halloween costumes this year. We originally had planned on Wreck it Ralph and Vanellope Von Schweetz but with our schedules, it just didn’t happen. I’m not too disappointed though because I LOVE TINA BELCHER and I’ve been wanting to dress up as her for some time. All of what we’re wearing we pieced together from our closets. Easy peasy!

We obviously had to bring in our little Louise Belcher for a photo ūüėČ

Halloween Costumes With Your Feline Friend

ACS_1209

Hello there! It’s Pocket Sized Katt with her actual pocket-sized cat, and I’m here to tell you that cats can do Halloween too. While we absolutely adore seeing pups and their people dressed up for Halloween, we have been wondering where all of the dressed up cats and their staff are at?

I love my cat. She is my sweet furbaby, is totally the best snuggler (my boyfriend will agree) and is one of my very best friends. And while I do have a post of Halloween couples costumes coming up featuring my wonderful boyfriend, Danny, I wanted to write a post that featured our adorable little soot sprite of a cat, Alice. While she may not be totally enthused about this feature, I am beyond ecstatic. Most pieces I used were items I already owned save a few exceptions.

They weren’t necessarily the easiest photos to get. She gets a little spooked being far from the house outside, she really doesn’t like to model and basically thinks that being in my arms or on my lap equals naptime but we made it work.

Here it is ladies and gentlemen: couples Halloween costumes with your little feline friend. Stop everything that you are doing right meow and take a peek at these adorable photos.

A skeleton and her pumpkin. My mom bought Alice the cutest little pumpkin outfit this year and I really wanted to figure out some way to incorporate it into these costumes. When I came across this oversized skeleton sweater from Value Village, the idea was set and ready.

Pumpkin Costume: Petsmart  Tights: Modcloth  Everything else: Old items from my closet

Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony. I’m not ashamed to admit that I love the show My Little Pony. I just think it’s absolutely adorable! Fluttershy and Discord (he’s hilarious) are my favourite characters and when I came across a Rainbow Dash tutu for Alice, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

Mabel and Waddles from Gravity Falls (this piggy costume was so cute but way too big on her haha.) Gravity Falls is one of my favourite series and Mabel and Waddles are just too adorable, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of dressing up as the two of them.

Mabel Sweater: Hot Topic  Pet Pig Costume: Amazon

Two cute lumberjacks. This was so much fun that I think we’ll be revisiting these outfits again during the Holiday season with Danny and take some family photos.

Alice’s Onesie: from Petsmart years ago ¬†My Onesie: La Senza Romper from last year

Soot sprites and Totoro. My Neighbor Totoro holds a very special place in my heart. I am in love with this soot sprite dress I got from Hot Topic years ago and luckily I had bought Alice her Totoro onesie a year ago (I still need one for myself.) It was a match made in heaven!
