Me as Two-Face. Yes, I am freakishly tall. The costume is homemade, and 95% my wife’s work. Love it! That scepter in the background belonged to a girl who dressed up as the singer from the Do You Wanna Date My Avatar video.
My wife, Betsy, rocking the Supergirl costume. The skeleton’s diggin’ it too.
My third and final poster: the scarecrow.
As you can see, we did not suffer from a shortage of alcohol. Or, in this case, Liquid Shadow.
The Cauldron. (It was apple cider.)
Putting the “moan” back in Mona Lisa. You’d be surprised the stuff you can find at Kroger.
The not-so-itsy-bitsy spider, checking out our spooky screensaver. Poe’s feathered henchman keeps things classy up top.
Artoo gets into the holiday spirit. We put black lights in the kitchen.
At first I thought these were just meatballs with olive slices that my wife made. Turns out? Actual ogre eyes. Delicious.
I uploaded my library to the Web. HA! omg do you get it
Good time had by all. We got about a dozen guests, with costumes including Nyan Cat, the Do You Wanna Date My Avatar girl, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Lara Croft, The Dude from The Big Lebowski, a nerd drag queen, and a Scotsman in a kilt. I’ve got photos of them too, but I’m not going to put them on the blog, because I don’t want to be That Guy.
How about you? Doing anything fun for Halloween?
Me, I’m staying home. Probably going to place some video games and read poetry like the shameless loner I am. I’ve decided it’s much easier than trick-or-treating. For that entire night, I could just get the same amount of candy for a couple dollars at the store the next day when they go on sale.
As for parties, I don’t get invited. Not that I want to be, my peers don’t make for parties as awesome as yours sounds. Underage drinking, bullying, and girls in revealing costumes? Nooooooo thank you. I’ll stick with my tea and some Yeats.
Yeats is scary enough, no? And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, / Slouches toward Bethlehem to be born? Enjoy.
