Halloween A Week Later

Halloween 2010
The Doctor

I admit it, I’ve been horribly remiss and have not done my usual post-Halloween show and tell. Please forgive me! If you had a chance to watch last week’s Talk To Me Tuesday, then you’ll know that I was just starting to feel sick on Tuesday. Wednesday I was about the same, and Thursday, too. Friday and Saturday seemed to bring no change. Yesterday, I woke up, and the tickle I’d had in my throat all week had turned into a full-blown head cold. Currently, I have no voice to speak of.  I’m quite a talker and I’m finding being quiet insanely frustrating, though it’s not been bad for my NaNoWriMo efforts!

I almost completely missed Halloween this year, not arriving home from the International Quilt Market (which I also need to talk about here!) until 9 pm. My kids were done with their trick-or-treating and tired from all the fun and candy.

Because they are the awesome kids that they are, they gave me a second chance and dressed up for me on Monday. We did a little photo shoot. Here are some of the results!

The Doctor and her TARDIS

Elena, my 15 year old, was the tenth Doctor from Doctor Who. She put her own costume together from thrift store and sale shopping. We splurged on a new pair of Chucks. Totally worth it!

Facing off with Agent Washington

My almost-13-yo, Gareth, was Agent Washington from Red Vs. Blue, a Halo-inspired animated series. I won’t lie, when he first told me he wanted to be Washington, I thought even my costuming skills wouldn’t be enough. We lucked out and found a martial arts sparring set in the perfect size for him. His costume was created using almost all of the set, plus craft foam, upholstery foam, paint, velcro, elastic and spray paint…oh, and a yellow Avery divider!  His weapons were (small) a plastic water gun and (large) a plastic AK47 from the costume shop, both modified to look as much like Agent Washington’s weapons as possible.
