(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.
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.
