This is what I looked like BEFORE I had to deal with trick-or-treaters.
And this is AFTER.
My kid (the one in the home-made pirate costume) reminds me of Jack Nicholson in this photo. Something about the eerie facial expression.
He used a rubber Disney knife to clean his teeth before I applied the home-drawn beard and mustache.
I used to be an accountant, but don’t let the costume fool you. I never worked for the IRS.
My friend Mary in another one of my creations. This picture always cracked me up.
His wish was my command. He wanted me to make an Obi-Wan Kenobi costume that year. I even made those faux-suede faux-boots.
Cam got some use out of that robe for a couple years afterward, as a bathrobe!
Cam wore the Spider-Man costume for three years in a row. All of the costumes I made for him he only used one season. :(
Spooky flashlight care of Auntie Pat and Uncle Kenne!
One of many fun nights, with many good kids.
Cam’s first grade class. Look at how each and every kid is totally decked out! That’s my town for ya.
Boo!! And Happy Halloween.
