Halloween Medley

Seeing as how it is Halloween on Saturday, and seeing as how you all are probably sick of reading about NaNoWriMo, I thought I’d take a look back at some of my costumes from the last several years. Enjoy.

This one was from my first year in the office. I barely knew everybody there and was but a wee lad. Still, this is by far my best costume. That green leisure suit was straight out of my Dad’s closet, and I love him for that.  And no, he doesn’t wear it anymore. 🙂

I followed that one up with my weakest effort. This was supposed to be an “N’Syc Guy”. Lazy. Moving on…

Halloween2001

This one is pretty good. Yes, I even painted my fingernails black. It took me  a LONG time to get that fingernail polish off. In fact, I bet I wore it to my hockey game the next morning. I wonder where that spiky necklace is?

Halloween2002

King Arthur from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. My wife made this outfit. By hand. No sewing machine. Yes, I tell her every day that I love her. 🙂

Halloween2003

Clint Eastwood guy. This one wasn’t too bad. I wish I had a better picture of it.

Halloween2004

This one was a store bought wizard costume. Not too bad, but lazy and expensive.

Halloween2005

Below is my Monster Hunter outfit, ala The Crocodile Hunter. My daughter, seen in the picture, was given that costume before we knew if she was going to be a boy or a girl. My wife added the pink bows so everybody knew for sure. 🙂

This is the best picture I have of my in my pirate costume. I may have altered it in Photoshop, slightly.

Halloween2007

 

Last year I was a zombie. Freaked my daughter out a little bit. I felt very weird putting on all that makeup, but overall I think it was a decent effort.

Halloween2008

I’m supposed to be Mario (from Super Mario Brothers) this year, and my baby son is going to be Luigi. However, my overalls haven’t come in the mail yet. That’s what I get for waiting until the last minute.
