Last-minute Halloween roundup: Costumes, treats and decorations

0 comments

Are you a last-minute type of person like I am?

(Sometimes it seems that in order for me to get moving, I need a deadline looming over my head. Then I do whatever it is I’m supposed to do, and everything turns out fine.)

(Yes, I was a journalism major. Why do you ask?)

For all you last-minute types / deadline-driven personalities,  here is a roundup of Halloween costume, treat and decorating ideas.

Did you see my handmade steampunk engineer costume?

I also created three non-allergenic treats you can easily make for Halloween. Like, today.
