halloween costume contest

I usually prefer cute Halloween over the gory kind, so I like to avert my eyes when I see the fake severed limb area of my local dollar store! Over at Very Vegan Holiday, Andrea had a different idea, and transformed the icky fake body parts into gilded trophies to give out as costume contest awards at her Halloween party. After the limbs get a good coat of gold spray paint, I can get over my heebie-jeebies and see how great this idea is! [how to make halloween costume contest trophies]
