In a few minutes I’m off to help host a Halloween dance. Here’s a few pictures of our early evening before music, dancing, trick-or-treating, shenanigans, and probably one really shitty B-movie.
Phoenix designed everything about her costume. I helped a little, although I should point out she made her entire mask.
Nels was originally going to be “a tornado”. He’d figured out the whole thing. Then after Hurricane Sandy the costume was deemed insensitive. I made the Pikachu costume last night. My fastest work ever. 4:30 PM to 7 PM and I was pretty tuckered out making it. Here’s the back, and never let it be said I don’t do bush league work when I have to.
I told you my daughter did a great pumpkin.
Phee draws while Nels & friends get an early start on the T-or-T. Daughter pretty much always, always draws whenever she gets a chance.
Your Phoenix is an artist, for sure. In skill and in spirit. Everything about this post is fab. Come see Rowan’s getup, if you are so inclined…
ADORABLE, and you’re right about that “Renaissance paunch”. I never had an RP costume as a kid, but I think I’d fit one of those pretty well, today.
Thanks for the compliments!
I love Phoenix’s costume, but I don’t know what it is (probably it’s because I’m lame and out-of-touch), since I’m sure it’s not just a standard cat costume. That red and black fur is really cool. Excellent high-speed work on the Pikachu, though I would love to know what the tornado costume would have looked like. I’m always the queen of the last minute on the Halloween costumes – this year was no exception. I ended up making T’s costume in 2 days, including slight alterations at the last minute, and I wasn’t totally finished with Maeve’s, though nobody but me knew that. It’s like no matter how early I start, I never have enough time.
Thanks! I’m hoping to squeeze at least one more year out of the RP model. By the way, we had a nyan-cat moment last week (now that my boy lives on YouTube) and I thought of you.
