Halloween
Not my fireplace

Hope everyone had a great Halloween! I did!

Jack Skellington Jack-o-Lantern
I always wanted to do a Jack Skellington pumpkin

I think this is the first Halloween that I intentionally chose a “feminist” costume.

Rosie the Riveter. I needed to practice the face more. When my friend was about to take my picture, I smiled like I normally do, then quickly thought to myself “look serious.” This was the result.

Halloween
A Chilean Miner, his “wife” and mistress


The Sailor’s sister and her family stopped by during their trick or treating on Sunday. She made all of their costumes – Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy Darling and John Darling. Pretty handy.

Fall Frisbee 2010 Schiller Park-128
Pirate

Apparently he was supposed to dress as a pirate for their Frisbee game. He mentioned this a few days prior to the game, but he didn’t have a costume… As luck would have it, when I was at my parents’ house a couple weekends ago, I picked up my pirate costume just in case. Problem solved. Although I kept the headscarf for my Rosie the Riveter costume. He supplied the balloons.
