A retro-style spooking!

***WARNING: Picture heavy post!***


Well I'm popping by today to give you pre-Halloween spooking.....

...retro styleeeeeeee!

Orange Boo
Mr Orange

green boo side

Mr Green

Purple boo

Ms Purple (who's such a poser that she insisted on two pics!)

Purple Boo Side

Recognise these cuties at all?

I confess. I let my inner retro-gaming-geekness dictate this year's Halloween treats for my little monsters nieces and nephews *grin* These ghosts are totally inspired by that retro-classic, Pac-Man!

And what's inside? A trick or a treat...?


A treat of course! C'mon I'm not that mean *wink*

These treat holders were so easy to whip up once I'd drawn a template of a ghost and used hardly any of my supplies (bonus!) Googly eyes add so much character to these ghouls. I had to make 7 in total, but here's three of 'em lined up (I couldn't fit any more on one pic!)

Retro spooking

Now take a closer peek. Can't you tell that Ms Purple is oh-so-mature and those boys, Mr Orange and Mr Green are up to no good as usual...

funny ghouls

I did wonder if my eldest niece was too old to celebrate Halloween this way at age 13, but after the reaction I got from my guy when I showed him these I've now been commissioned to make him one LOL!!! I think the gaming nostalgia was evoked in him when he saw these - not quite sure my nieces and nephews will get it but I figure they're waaaaaay more interested in the contents than the packaging anyways!

So I'm signing off to make another one of these green of course! ;D

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Catch ya later!

These are definitely too cute to spook, such a great gift wallet for Halloween :)
We have the Pac Man drinks glasses at home with the ghosts names on but I can't for the life of me remember what they are at the moment!!!

What a flashback to my youth! I have a big smile on my face because I love the bright colors against the black and the Pac Man imagine is so fun! So glad you shared these little cuties!

These are just fabulous Aimes and I love your pic, not to mention the speech bubbles!
I can just imagine all the faces lit up by such cute little treats.
