A Halloween Costume Party with Squidoo Man
Meet Squidoo Man
Greetings. Welcome to my Squidoo Halloween party. I'm so glad you could make it. Have you been to Squidoo before? It's a very friendly community. You get to know everyone through the lenses that they write.
The party is just starting and some of my guests are already here. Tonight, everyone has put on their Halloween best. Many people are sharing their costume secrets. You want to know about my costume? It came from my closet. I prefer to put a costume together with what I already have instead of buying something new each year. The only thing I do to get myself in the Halloween spirit is to take my head off. My kids think I'm so cool.
Let me introduce you to the guests. I've known some of them for years. See that guy over there? The skinny one with the hood on? We're childhood friends. We go back centuries. I bet he's dying to meet you.
All pictures within the lens belong to me. If you would like to use them, please have a link back to this lens.
Junior the Skeleton Guy
You can’t believe everything that Squidoo Man tells you about me. We’ve been friends forever. And when I say forever, I mean a VERY long time. Ha ha ha. We had so much fun as kids. We used to crash Halloween parties. Kids would be impressed with how I looked and ask me where I got my costume. Then Squidoo Man would rattle my bones and everyone would freak out. After everyone settled down, I would grab Squidoo Man’s head and chase the girls with it. It was great fun. We were very popular.
People sometimes ask me how they can look like me. I tell them its genetics. All my relatives from as far back as I remember, and that might be since the Black Plague, have had a similar bone structure. But I have seen some great costumes on Amazon. Take a look:
If you're not already dead and just bones, you will need a costume to look like me.
Let me introduce you to Princess Halloween
So what did you think of Junior? He's a real character, right? Ya just gotta love the guy. He has a great sense of humor. We had such a kick as kids. I hope he didn't tell you too much. Ha ha ha.
Now I'd like you to meet Princess Halloween. She is just so adorable, sweet and kind. I love her so much. I need to take care of some business, so I'll let you all talk and I'll be back soon.
After that, I'll take you to the kitchen to see what Chef Halloween has cooking. Hopefully not the guests, but you never know with him.
Squidoo Man is not a man of many words, especially when he has no head. He sometimes likes to be a clown, but it’s kind of hard to believe a guy with no head or arms.
I just love what you’re wearing. Where did you get that? No. I never heard of that store. I usually make my own clothes. I always wear black. I think it gives me a certain sophisticated air. But I do know where to get some really nice Princess costumes.
Excuse me? You want to know where I get my face makeup from? I’m not wearing any. But I will tell you where to get Princess makeup.
If you want to know more about me, please check out the lens that was written about me after you check out the Princess costumes and makeup.
In the Kitchen with the Chef Halloween
Ah, dinner. I mean more guests for dinner. Welcome to my laboratory, er, kitchen. Are you having a nice time at the party? I've known Squidoo Man for a long time. I have been the cook for his family every since he could bleed, ah, walk. I come from a long, long, long, long line of foodies. We're having some of his favorite dishes tonight. I can't give you any recipes. The last person in my family to let out a family secret was burned at the stake in Salem, Massachusetts
Here's the menu:
Swamp Soup with Plasma infusion
My own Chef's salad made with Bitter Greens, Rotten Tomatoes, and Satyr's Beard Mushrooms dressed in cod liver oil.
Live chicken livers sautÃ©ed in snake venom with mashed potatoes and blood gravy.
For desert there is custard made from curdled milk and newt eggs.
There's an after dinner grog made by the Warlocks of Squidoo. Very tasty.
Are you going to stay for dinner? Oh, you just ate and you're not hungry. That's too bad.
I know you're interested in Halloween costumes. I inherited my chef's outfit from my father after I killed, ah, after he passed away. Here's a brochure of chef's costumes and accessories from Amazon if you'd like to look at.
Hey you kids, get over here. I have to get back to work. These are your dad's special guests. Why don't you show them your dungeon, I mean, play room.
Nice meeting you, folks.
Chef Accessories - Make sure you keep them sharpened
The most important thing in the kitchen are the knives. Good knives make your life easier when you're getting dinner ready or cutting someone up for a Halloween party.
Get a sharpener to make sure your knives aren't dull. That's very important.
Shears are necessary in the kitchen. You might need to butterfly a chicken or just cut some cheesecloth. You don't want to go looking for a pair of scissors from the sewing box.
Squidoo Man's Kids
There you are. I see my kids have you captivated. Just make sure they don't put the shackles on you. They lost the key years ago.
Let me introduce them to you. They are, from left to right, Hectate, Maleficient, and Grimhilde. I was once married to Elizabeth, a niece of Margaret Hamilton, until Billie Burke's grandson threw a water spell on her that had no antidote. He was trying to see if witches really melted and who best to try it on?
Like their dad, the Squidoo kids don't want to go out and buy a costume. They'd rather be more creative and "decorate" themselves with all sorts of accessories and makeup. I'll leave you alone with them and catch up with you later.
Did you have a good time at the party? Or did you have to leave early because you had other plans (or just want to go home and hide under the covers).
Don't forget to take the Witch Quiz if you dare!!!
