2010 Mazdaspeed 3: Halloween Dress-Up and Antiquing

November 01, 2010

I couldn't resist the urge to dress up the Mazdaspeed 3 for Halloween. Abetted by my crafty neighbor, we made cardboard fangs and a tongue, and toyed with the idea of dipping the teeth in a little transmission fluid as a special effect, but decided to keep it simple.

Before tricking out the car on Sunday, my husband and I took it along to the Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market. I can't count the number of times we've seen cool things we might have bought, but took a pass because we didn't have the right car to schlep the purchase home.

As we shopped, my husband snapped photos of things we liked that would easily fit in the Mazdaspeed 3's roomy interior, such as these sweet Heywood Wakefield end tables:

These Halloween trinkets also would have fit:

But ultimately, we didn't see anything we really wanted. So it was off to Costco, where we made a paper-goods haul. We definitely would have had room for the demon heads. I'm a little sorry we didn't get them.
