Halloween?!

OMG Halloween is almost here?!

Are you looking for a last minute costume but don’t want to spend a lot of money on something you’ll only wear once?

Well you’re in luck! Here are a few fun and funky costume ideas that have pieces you can wear again and again!

Panda

Look at this cute little panda! Not only does she have a fun vegan leather dress by Others Follow on but her ears and paws will keep nice and warm with the panda ear warmer by San Diego Hat Company and mittens by Mad About Style.

Kitty Cat

Meow! This little kitty will be the life of the party in this fun dress by Free People (great for all those holiday parties coming up!) Her fuzzy paws are mittens by Mad About Style and that gorgeous mask by Katherine’s Collection just pulls the entire costume together.

Duck

QUACK, QUACK, QUACK! What’s up duck? This fun costume has a sweet little dress by Yumi and funky orange tights by Me Moi.  Her feet are going to be nice and comfy all night long with these fun slippers by Rich Frog. If you don’t have time to find a duck bill, we suggest just going as the Facebook fad of “duck face”… :-)

Duck Family Slippers

…and the feet come in 3 sizes if you are looking to be a family of ducks!

Hippy

Groooooovy. Spread some peace and love vibes with this funky outfit! Ya gotta dig those sweet jeans by Free People and flowy Ivy Jane top.  Add some extra flower power with a fun headband and big sunglasses to make your outfit complete!

Star Trek  Star Trek Laser

Live long and prosper this Halloween in this dress by Isle, who created a dress QUITE similar to a Star Trek uniform. Add some black knee high boots (like these from Not Rated) and perhaps a tiny ray gun and you’re ready to battle the Borg.

Pug Mask

…and if you’re really stuck, swing by and grab a pug mask-it goes with everything!!!

Whatever you decide to be, Lucinda’s hopes you have a safe, fun and  HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Ever wonder where it all began?

The tradition of figurines made out of sugar actually came out of Europe.  Tracing back to Palermo, Italy, it was common practice to create figurines out of sugar as religious decorations. As sugar became more abundant, Mexican culture adopted the tradition into their Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festivities with the creation of sugar skulls.

Over time, sugar skull designs became more intricate, elaborate, and colorful. During Dia de los Muertos celebrations, sugar skulls represented a departed soul.  As a way to indicate the individual represented, the name of individuals celebrated were written on the foreheads of the skulls and placed in the home or gravestone to welcome their return. Designs typically portray bright colors, floral designs, and a big ol’ smile in the jovial folk art style of Mexican culture.

Who doesn’t love a happy skull?

Does all this talk of sugar have your sweet tooth aching?

This Saturday, October 5th from 6pm-9pm, we’re throwing an early Day of the Dead celebration!

Stop by and get yourself some Sugar Skull Treats and Spooky Drinks!

There will be face painting and Lamphouse Photo Co. will be there to take pictures of your beautifully painted faces. First 10 guests will receive free portraits…so don’t be late!

Don’t forget to pick up your limited edition Lucinda’s buttons!

…AND to top it off, a $100 gift certificate will be rewarded to the best Sugar Skull costume that night!
