Sunday Snapshots: Halloween Party Prep

Comic Book Party Prep - A Well Crafted Party

This weekend I had some much needed down time. Last week was insane at work and I couldn’t seem to get a moment to work on anything blog related much less see my kiddos. In the midst of the errand running and general hanging out with the family that I did, I also got to spend a couple of hours prepping for Halloween. Our comic book themed Halloween party is starting to come together! (Now that my Felicity Smoak costume is complete I’m moving on to party decorations.)

My week/weekend in snapshots:

I had to add in this photo because it is just too fun. Our work had our yearly conference this year in which I take a big part in putting together. We always go ALL OUT with our theme and this year’s theme was Rock and Roll. I pretty much want purple hair and a tattoo sleeve now.

The party prep has involved cutting up a lot of old comic books I found while thrifting. We used the comic books to decorate tags, cups, juices, and more.

The biggest project I tackled this weekend was creating LARGE paintings of comic characters. I utilized a projector to help guide the paintings. I first drew the outline and then painted in the large sections of color and then finished the details. My son even got in on the painting!

I got a lot done this weekend, but I still have lots more to do to be ready for this next weekend.


Are you ready for Halloween? If so, what are you planning on doing for the holiday?

    Wow, the details to your party are really coming together! That’s a great idea to use a projector to get the outlines right – without a ton of time-intensive hand-drawing. I love your use of all the old comic books, too.
