I Won! I Won! I Won!

I am very proud of The Boy today. He did great.

We entered into a Scary Halloween Costume competition and we won 🙂

Of course he wouldn’t have won without my amazing eye for gruesome detail and my incredible ability with stage make-up. And the competition was tough let me tell you, everyone looked very scary.

I mean, who else could make a cute (albeit hulking) puppy of 4 months look so scary that he won a Halloween competition? Only me. So, I won. He was just the model 😀

The competition for the guys was held at The Misadventures of Misaki  – don’t you just love that name? M I S A K I.

Raffles won for being the scariest guy and I can tell you there are times when he doesn’t need that make-up to scare me! You wait until a behemoth who hasn’t yet got control of his body or legs bears down on you with that ‘I wanna play’ look in his eye and you’ll know fear!

Anyway, that apart, I won and the guy did good 🙂 Judge for yourselves what a great job I did. Here’s a picture of puppy Raffles. Cute isn’t he?

Cute Raffles

And here’s the picture of scary Raffles after I had finished with him tee hee!

It also means we have a new badge to sport which is great.

Now there was also a girls competition held over at Mollie & Alfie’s blog. There was great competition there too and if I’d been in charge of my picture I think I could have won but The Producer did a poor job.

At first she couldn’t do it at all because she felt guilty making me look messed up and scary! Can you believe it? What a wimp. You’ve got to have a bit more backbone than that if you’re going to make it as a star. I do understand that I am gorgeous but if Nicole Kidman can wear a big nose for a role and Renée Zellweger is prepared to put on weight for a film it just shows that sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

But The Producer didn’t really have her heart in the job and as a result it lacked passion and she didn’t win. Me, I threw myself into the job heart and soul and passion.

Not that I mean the pup any harm you understand. It was nothing personal. Well, maybe a teensy-weensy bit personal. Okay, it was personal –  but he had just been sick in my bed so that added a little motivation to my creativity! Any one of you would have felt the same so do not judge.

HUGE thanks to Mollie & Alfie and Misaki  for doing all the hard work and giving us all such fun.

If you didn’t see the competitions I recommend you popping over.

Now I’m going to have to work on Christmas, there are sure to be some things going on nearer the festive season and The Producer needs a lot of training. Sometimes I despair, I am not sure I can do a thing with her!
