Buttons Included – Scary and Cute Movie characters!

Happy Halloween!
Here in the North East it’s be quite some time since we’ve seen a real halloween. With a snow storm in 2011 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Halloween has been hiding from us! But not this year. Now it’s time for some real fun and TONS of candy!

Since we always have buttons on the brain here at Blumenthal… I decided to note some fun, scary, and cute characters we all know – that are wearing buttons. It’s never obvious! Buttons are awesome everyday objects, and maybe next time you’ll take note on how many you see each day.

As a kid I always loved watching “Violet turn violet”. This would make a fun costume… but there’s no guarentee the buttons would hold all that air in! 🙂

I love the print and collar on the Christina Ricci’s “Wednesday”. I don’t know if the collar has a special name, I might have to ask Taylor!!

Beetlejuice and Jack Skellington have only 1 button, but did anyone ever realize how similar their outfits are? I only just noticed while looking through some movie pictures… Not to mention both movies have Tim Burton in common 😉
