Happy Halloween!

I almost feel silly writing about Halloween costumes when people are struggling to get through Hurricane Sandy right now, but I feel a small sense of triumph this year.

(Seriously though, East Coast friends, I am thinking about you and concerned for you!  I would be a little terrified).

Halloween is my least favorite holiday (except for the candy part), and I get all sorts of stressed out about finding a costume, first thinking, eh, I don't like to dress up/think of a costume/have anything around to work into a costume, so I won't dress up.  Then as parties creep up, I feel the pressure of finding something, but I don't want it to suck, so I stress out finding the perfect thing at the last minute and it's just always a mess.

Well, I went through all that this year, but it all turned out well.  I was in Phoenix for work this week, but got back in time to do the costume shuffle (I think I went to ten stores on Saturday, thrift/Goodwill and regular stores and finally found all the props I needed).


Hello, Suzy Bishop and Sam Shakusky!   Some people got it, quite a few had to ask.
 

Oh, look!  Double trouble!

 I'm going to watch Moonrise Kingdom again, as soon as I finish writing this post.  

Amy had a binder full of women.

Tim proclaimed himself the scariest costume at the party.  I might actually agree a little.  

Food - not quite as good as James Nickerson's dead fingers from a couple years ago, but points for trying.

And this was just sick.  Sick!  No way I could eat out of that.

Colin's 'black hare' was pretty creepy.  Those teeth!



All in all, a decent party.  Let's see what next year brings, though I'm in no hurry to get there.

Last November, with a Little Trip to Austin

Stuff from last November! At work we made little bandanas for pets in shelters. I guess when they have a colorful thing around their neck ...
