Happy Halloween, Hearties! Everyone have a fun-filled night? Well to help you get into the spirit of things, I’ve got a great little post for you! I bet I know what you’re thinking! “So, what movie will you be reviewing today, and what WCTH stars are in it?” Well, SURPRISE! There’s no movie for this #WonderWednesday. I’ve been kind of focused on that particular theme for the past several months, but if you remember, #WonderWednesday is supposed to be when we can talk about theories, other events the cast and crew are involved in, and any other fun WCTH-related things that don’t directly involve the show. And in a constant effort to keep things fresh, and keep my readers satisfied, (because I love all of you SO MUCH,) I’m mixing things up a bit. So let’s start with the best part: COSTUMES!
You don’t know what a triumph this was to get my entire family to dress up like characters from…none other than our series! My husband, as you all know, does NOT like WCTH, and he was very resistant to the idea. But I begged with puppy dog eyes, and he caved! It also didn’t hurt that I mentioned it would be good for the blog, and this was probably the last time the Mountie costume would fit little Jack. Score, baby!
Costume 1: Pre-mayor Abigail
I had originally planned on being Faith. I was going to be all clever and do modern scrubs and put a name tag that said “Faith” on it; but I ran out of time. So I had to think fast, and luckily, I had a white apron. Save!
Costume 2: Lee
This one was pretty easy. We just used his Sunday suit. But isn’t he precious??? So dapper, just like Kavan.
Costume 3: Opal
You can’t tell, but her hair IS in pigtails. She just has really short hair; it almost didn’t go into the elastics. The dress is her big sister’s, so it was long enough to be a frontier girl’s dress, and it looked very Opal-like. The teddy bear’s name is Chocolate because it smells like chocolate. But we’ve used it as Brownie so many times, I think the girls are going to make the change permanent.
Costume 4: Rosemary
One thing you should know: Kyrah HATES having her hair curled, but when I showed her the sparkling red dress in her closet and told her she could be Rosemary, she jumped at the chance…even went through the curling iron torture. She didn’t sing “Let Me Call You Sweetheart” though.
Costumes 5&6: Ray Wyatt and Jack
Ray was also easy, my husband wore HIS Sunday suit; he just wasn’t wearing his coat at the moment. I told Will he could be Lee too since he’s Will’s favorite character, but he was insistent on being the notorious villain. Don’t ask me why! He had planned on being Carson, but we couldn’t find the lab coat he was supposed to wear. So we went with the next best thing: available clothes and being the bad guy. 😀
Then of course, we have our beloved Jack. I still can’t believe the uniform still fits, but if you notice, the sleeves are about halfway up his arms. But I didn’t think we’d make it to Halloween when Jonathan was born in April, so I’m ecstatic it made it this far! I don’t think we ever saw Jack on Ray’s knee though. 😉
And then, I owe you some information, don’t I? If you were here for #MysteryMeetYouMonday, you saw clues for the identity of a mystery person. By the way, thank you to all of you who figured it out but didn’t post the answer on Facebook. That makes it much more fun! If you still want to play, stop readgo to Monday’s post, and see how far down the list you go before you figure out who it is. For everyone else, drum roooolllll please!
The answer is none other than….
our own Papa Heartie, Brian Bird.

So now that the answer is revealed, comment on whether or not you got it right, (if you didn’t I’m VERY curious as to who you guessed,) and how far down the list you had to go. No skipping clues. I purposely put the more obvious ones at the bottom. The lowest number wins. Right now you only win bragging rights, but we’re “practicing” for when I get to run a real contest! 😀
Well, I hope you had a great and spooky night. 😉 See you Friday for the first November post; you won’t want to miss it! This is Hooked Heartie, signing off! May your heart let your hope blossom!
