what to wear~ on halloween

Secretly, (okay, maybe not so much) I have a love for fairies.  They're so pretty, graceful, and in touch with nature.  They're quiet, love to dance, and are practically invisible.  I've had a pair of fairy wings for a few years, and just about every Halloween I find a reason to put them on.  Really, I just wish it was acceptable to wear them on a day to day basis, but I don't like to draw too much attention to myself.  Today is the perfect day to don them.
Ever since getting learning about fairy doors, I knew I had to have one.  When we bought our house a touch over a year ago, there was no excuse anymore; a fairy door must be installed.  Finally, after purchasing, staining, and sealing the door it met its match in a sturdy pine in our backyard.  Sloppy goops of caulk and some unsightly screws later, the fairies now have a welcome place to call home in our little plot of mother nature.

There's a 100% chance of rain in the Zoo-of-Kalama, and I'm a little bummed to think that we most likely won't get any trick-or-treaters for the second year in a row as homeowners, but then again, I sort of just want that bag of suckers to myself.

I'm excited to see what the rest of the gang put together for Halloween!  What are you wearing/ have you worn this year so far?  Link up on Nicole's blog, and pop over to check out the other rad outfits!
