We had a blast today with our coworkers...but my day started with a TRUE SCARE.

Eric knows I have a really hard time with Halloween, with the darkness, the costumed adults (UGH!!!), the anxiety of potential terror around every corner.  So he got me GOOD today...

So after my blood pressure returned to normal....we started the phases of my costume for our work party.  (I couldn't exactly come to work at 4:40am in a white robe, heels, and TONS of makeup....)

Even though Eric is the mega Gaga fan, I decided to try my hand at her character, The Countess, from America Horror Story: Hotel (Season 6)...this meant 80x more hair/makeup than I've ever used in my entire life...so I enlisted the help of a stylist, Charlene, from Teez Salon in Tonawanda.

Then Eric joined the styling team and helped get my blood spatter just right!

The finished product came out quite well, thanks to my squad!! And was good enough to take home first place for "Scariest Costume"....

Eric is a huge Disney fan, so he got away easy with a comfy, zip-front Mickey, which was adorbs!

Here are a few more, including coworkers and our boss!
