Bewitching Trick-Or-Treat Blog Hop

Happy Halloween, everyone, and welcome to the Bewitching Trick-or-Treat Blog Hop! I don't know about you, but this is absolutely one of my favorite holidays. I've always been a huge fan of anything paranormal, so it makes sense that this time of year would be right up my alley. There's just something about the general spookiness of the season that gives me the happy shivers. And when else can we dress up and not have folks look at us askance? As a kid, I remember how much fun it was deciding what my costume would be. Most of the time my costumes would be homemade, and I had to be creative with putting them together. Probably my all time favorite was when I was in high school, and decided to go as a mad scientist, and my best friend was my "experiment". I was able to borrow a lab coat from my science teacher and I dumped a whole bottle of baby powder in my hair--which by the way, I don't recommend because it's a bugger to get out and makes you look like you've got a wicked case of dandruff. But I digress.

So on to my contest...                                                  

For your chance to win an epically cool Zombie Smuthound tote bag designed by the brilliant Kyla Holt of Kyla Novelista fame that's filled with author swag, candy and an autographed copy of That Voodoo You Do, just leave me a comment with what your favorite Halloween costume of all time would be. Sorry, due to shipping costs, this contest is limited to US and Canda, but any International entrants can enter for a digital copy of That Voodoo You Do. Winner will be picked and posted at end of blog hop, so be sure to include an email address for me to contact you in your comments. Thanks and good luck!

Also, don't forget to click on the Blog Hop graphic to move on to the next stop on the hop!

Hi Jodi!

I think my favorite of all time would be when I dressed up as a can-can girl. I don't think that one will ever really go out of style, but it's definitely not suitable for the work environment:)

As a sucker for historical romance, I would love to be decked out as one of the "ton" heading to a masquerade ball - so ball gown, dripping in expensive jewels, hair curly and intertwined with ribbons, and a domino. Fricking EPIC as far as I am concerned! *nods*

I can't wait until GFWYD comes out! Hawt cover and LOVE the fact that he's packin' - yeah! That way too! *snerk*

Happy Halloween Jodi!

The only costume I remember wearing (I was 5) was Glinda the Good Witch of the North from The Wizard of Oz. If I dressed up now, I would probably go as a vampiress. Never goes out of style.

It's a times like this I hate living on the otherside of the pond. But awesome contest and I would loooove an ebook copy of That vodoo you do.

I dressed up as a fairy once. Made myself some wings out of this pink net stuff. Lots of glitter on the face and a white dress... I was 18 at the time so it may have been a little disturbing for kids, but I had fun : P

I loved going as a sexy anything when college age. It was fun meeting people in costume, especially when you couldn't see their face. It was kind of exciting. Thanks for the giveaway! Gloria

I would love to one year dress up in a full steampunk outfit. It would be so cool to have the fun dress, the corset mixed in with goggles, boots and all the tech!

Maybe one year.

If I had the figure to do so, I would love to dress up as a succubus. But my favorite that I dressed up as was a scarecrow.

My favorite was a friend's Princess Leia gown from when we were in elementary school--she even had the perfect hair for the big "cinnamon bun" whorls :) That and my kids when they were little enough to wear the plump pumpkin costume--not much cuter than a round-cheeked baby in a round orange outfit :D
