Green Halloween Costumes for the Spook-a-Look Halloween Photo Contest

This was last year's foray into making sure my kids had "green" Halloween costumes.

The predator stalking the prey

My daughter's vampire costume was a creation made from clothes in my closet, an ebay cape, and a pair of vampire fangs she already had.

We dug through my closet and found a red skirt overlaid with black see through material, a long sleeved red top and a long sleeve black lace top that she put over the red shirt. She also snagged a pair of my black heels.

My little guy couldn't say trick or treat, he said "Twick or tweat"

My little guy wore a second hand costume that was big sister's. This cute little kitty was her favorite costume that she wore for years- right until she grew out of it.
Then she was still hesitant to part with it but now her little brother loves it.
This costume was probably one of the best ever purchased because it's made it through countless Halloweens and 2 kids and it's still as cute as ever.

"Green is the new white for environmentally conscious couples".

Author Louise Moon, founder of EcoMoon, is a leading wedding planner in the UK and loves to focus on green weddings.

In her new book The Natural Wedding: Ideas and Inspirations for a Stylish and Green Celebration Louise Moon shows couples how to "green" their wedding day.

From thoughtful features that focus on organic and locally grown food for the reception to imaginative solutions that will make the entire event as low impact as possible, The Natural Wedding has great advice green couples need to make their big day naturally romantic, eco-conscientious, and stylishly sustainable.

The Natural Wedding: Ideas and Inspirations for a Stylish and Green Celebration demonstrates that green weddings can be more stylish than a traditional wedding with a little bit of thoughtfulness and green planning. All aspects of greening the wedding day are covered: natural beauty, tasty menus, the perfect location, eco-invitations, gorgeously green wedding attire, beautiful flowers, a perfect ceremony, the eco-reception, green gifts, even after the wedding Louise gives advice for greening the honeymoon and living an eco life after the honeymoon is over because being green doesn't stop at "I do".

Louise focuses on four main styles for natural-weddings: vintage, eco-chic, seasonal, and DIY (do it yourself). She takes these four style ideas and applies them to every area of the green wedding. You can mix and match to create your perfect day or follow her guidelines for one main theme to run throughout your eco-event.Vintage obviously focuses on styles from bygone eras from the reused vintage gown to heirloom jewelry. Vintage styles are for the bride and groom who love antiques and simple elegance.
