OK, it's Halloween and a workday. I just know some of you are in costume today either at work or at school, and checking Hatrack as usual. So what are you today?

I'm a pirate! Yarrrr!

I am a Mommy whose little girl still doesn't sleep through the night at two! Look at the realistic bags under the eyes! And the greasy I need a shower hair! What an awesome effect! The little girl in question will be "Mulan" and I have to finish the Hubby's flaming pumpkin head costume before he gets home. Another busy day! We've taught her to say trick or treat, this will be fun!

Oh, I'm not dressed as a commando--going commando.
If anyone wants to see my costume...well, once they here what it is, nobody wants to see my costume.

Exceptionally sleepy.

Costumes were Saturday, and no one was happy with mine, so it's being retired right quick. I think they just didn't like being sprayed. [Frown]

I'm just plain grumpy, and getting ready to head out the door on a business trip.

My son is planning something reminiscent of the military. His costume is only partially assembled. His dad will have to help him finish it. Telling me at 8:00 pm after swimming that he needed more pieces at the local thrift store was not going to fly last night. So maybe I'm going as both grumpy and mean.

I put on a really great costume this year. It required both psychological and physical preperation. Today, for Halloween, I'm an obedient husband. Gaze upon my costume. Notice the matching socks, the clean clothes, the light fleece jacket. I even went all out and put on a belt that matches my other clothes.

Notice also the clean shaven face, the trimmed fingernails. Watch as I wake up at 6:30 to accompany my wife to the doctors, how I plan to clean the house... later.... and how I dutifuly leave her alone.

This is truly my greatest work.

I'm exhausted too. It was from being some sort of undead creature last night and jumping out at people (at a local haunted house). Then we had to take down everything. Whew!

And I think it was a raging success.

My costume is in the car waiting for our lunchtime costume party...

I'm going as Discordia. Black toga and a bag of golden (delicious) apples.

Saturday night I was Fry, Lindsay was Leela, and Jonesy was Bender. Pictures here and here.

Some people in my first class were dressed up today, but nobody in this one. Tonight I may be Fry again, or Bender. Who knows.

Olivet's husband came up with the measurements and blueprints for Bender <though it WAS my idea> but we worked on it together in his garage for several nights. I am quite proud. Without Olivia's husband the costume would have been made out of newspaper and duct tape. However, I did do my share of work on the thing.

We didn't have a jacket for Fry until 2 hours before the party (nothing like last minute), and Lindsay made her eye out of a paper plate, and her wrist thing was made from some foam Olivia had lying around the garage.

<edit to clarify that I cannot take credit on engineering the costume>

Ben, that Bender costume would win First Prize against anything else I've seen this year. (Or last year, for that matter. Great job!

That Bender suit is awesome!!!!

Today, I let out my inner punk (lots of false piercings, blue spiked hair, purple nail polish, leather cuffs, cut/pinned shirt, spiked dog collar, tattoo sleeves, black combat style boots with red/black striped socks).

The guys at work took pictures. It's fun because the people that know me know I'm dressed up. Strangers can only wonder.... [Smile]

Well, if my brain hadn't malfunctioned, I would now either be a medieval-ish personage or a disposable Star Trek ensign. [ROFL]

That Bender suit really is one of the best costumes I've ever seen. [Smile] Bravo!

I'm Hermione today. I have my Gryffindor scarf, my prefect badge, the big wavy brown hair (that's all mine!), a stack of impressive books and my conductor's baton serves as my wand. I also brought a witch hat for the incredibly behind the times. [Smile]

I'm a sad person recovering from an appendectomy.

I'm missing my favorite college party of the year (two years reigning costume winner) because I'm staying with my parents who insist on taking care of me.

I can't even sit at the door and hand out candy. Our neighbors throw a block-party so the kids never even reach our driveway (we live in a cul-de-sac.)

I just have on the crazy "caveman" wig that I bought to go with my straight-jacket, insane asylum costume. I've gotten plenty of laughs and jumps today before they figure out who I am.

I'm a Nameless Gryffindor Girl. [Smile] Anytime I can break out my Hogwarts robes makes me a happy girl. This is my most complete costume yet...including: wand, scarf, tie, sweater, skirt, button-down shirt, tights, and mary-janes. Oh, and I have my hair in pigtails. [Big Grin] People keep calling me Hermione. Honestly! Don't people realize Hermione doesn't wear pigtails?!

She actually requires me to have the facial hair I currently have. What I meant by that was "see, I haven't gone 6 days without shaving, and this time I didn't just use a beard trimmer at it's lowest level to 'pretend shave'."

We had the cutest little pirate come to the door.

"What are you dressed as?"

"A pirate."

"You're so scary!"

"No I'm not. It's just a costume!"

I'm an anime school girl. With puffball hair and little plaid skirt, black tights, red socks, black knee high Doc Martins, grey vest, and sexy black shirt. Nobody has said ANYTHING to me in my office. Not a single other person dressed up, and yet I didnt even recieve an odd look.
I think I take too much advantage of my companies turning a blind eye to my refusal to wear business casual. No one thinks I'm wearing a costume. I should have added the kitty ears. [Frown] .

As promised, I was a drunk soccer mom.
It was the eighth annual Drink-or-Treat Celebration.
The girls went off on their own this year, so it was seven adults with two boys. We were like a suburban-rural street gang.
