Halloween 2014

Monsters of the
Lower East Side
Here are some quick takes from Halloween on the Lower East Side of New York. We live in a co-op with 20 floors, so if you sign up in our management office, they put you on a Trick or Treat list for the kids who go from floor to floor.

All the kids are adorable, so it's a treat for us to see them. Some parents are super strict and only allow one candy per child. Some polite children ask how many they may take. And some children grab all they can. Those are the naughty children.
 I threw this costume together with a wig from
a street vendor, some face make up from Ricky's
and my sequin top from Madame Matouvu.
I bought Richard a mask at Ricky's and
he wore an orange shirt and sat
on an orange chair.
Our candy offerings.
Most of it went except for the Reese's Peanut Butter cups.

  1. New Yorkers seem to really go all out for Halloween - when I started visiting in October I couldn't believe the number of Halloween themed stores everywhere. I love that wig! Oddly enough, all the kids I had come to my door wanted Peanut butter cups.
