As per tradition, will post will give a break down of our Hallowe'en costumes this year. Drew and I trekked out to Ottawa to see my bestie, Amy, and her partner Matt and their brand new house. The house itself isn't brand new, but they've just bought it, and with a little paint here and there (to cover up the brick fireplace that was painted white and gold) it's looking fantastic. Amy tends to like holidays of all kinds, but she especially likes Hallowe'en, and her costumes are usually epic. One of my favourites was 'Roadkill Raccoon', complete with tire stripes. It was only fitting that Drew and I timed our visit with the Hallowe'en party weekend, and party we did. Without further ado, the costumes:
We saw another couple who were Riding Hood and Wolf, but they were way too boring - 'slutty' riding hood and a wolf mask. Amy and Matt win.
Drew went as Therman, a character from 'Dinner for Schmucks' played by Zack Galifianakis. Therman has written a book on mind control and exercises mind control on everyone he meets, especially Barry. He also wears a jacket, and underneath that jacket, a turtle-neck dickie. Yes, a dickie. He wears a velvet cape to dinner as well. All of this makes for an entertaining costume, as Drew demonstrates. And he controls your mind, so it is impossible to not like this costume.
People that we encountered didn't know exactly what I was right away, but laughed once they found out. I felt my effort was apreciated. Next year maybe I'll go as chicken pot pie, or black forest cake.
