happy hallowe'en!

Whatever you think about today's holiday, it's a great day for DRESSING UP. (I think my best-ever childhood costume was a home-made chicken outfit.) It's also a great day for drawing spiders! Here's one I drew for a project - which I'm not allowed to talk about yet - but this might or might not be the African trixter story god Anansi.

Hey, look, Damyanti Patel and her family made some Name Totems after seeing my blog post yesterday! Very cool!

And there are some awesome costumes coming in from the Tots 100 Seawigs competition! (Deadline is Monday, 4 Nov.) Check out this one blogged by @annawarner5! Love the furry antennae and curlers!!

And fabulous use of newspaper!!! This one blogged by @Mum_TheMadHouse:

This one tweeted by @TheBeesleyBuzz made my heart go all melty:

And @Irishbabyblu has been posting photo updates on her family's Seawigs! Exciting!!

@pixiedust kept it more simple, and they drew a picture of a Seawig. Lovely!

Thanks for everyone who's taken part so far! Also, news today, there's a new spooky comics anthology coming out called BOO!, including work by Gary Northfield and Jamie Smart, which is all very intriguing! Find out more on the Forbidden Planet International blog here.
