Heeerrreee's Cooorrreeeey!

For the last few years, we have gone to a costume party the weekend before Halloween and this year I was having a hard time coming up with a costume.  It was either go as a giant hot dog from the rack at Wal-Mart or use the magical world of the internet for something other than hairy German grandmother porn.  I chose the latter and by googling "funny Halloween costumes" came across what I think is the most brilliant costume ever.  So, I borrowed (in the same way that Jesse James "borrowed" all of that money from those banks 140 years ago) the idea.  I grabbed some old wood and trim from the garage and this is the result.


I used a little make-up to give myself pointier eyebrows and the crazy hair sticking down.  Here is a closer view.


And the full body shot.  I had to get a shirt from the Lighthouse thrift store to complete the ensemble.


I hung the picture below it to wear on Halloween itself to show kids what I was supposed to be.  I didn't have it on there for the party because I figured most adults would know.  I mean who hasn't seen. . . .



I wish I could say that the costume was my idea but it wasn't.  It also wasn't my idea to dress the newest Case "Sadie" up as a witch either.  She looks less than thrilled about the idea.  In fact, she looks like she's switching into kill mode.


And Kersten (daughter's bff) wanted to put on my "head on a tray" costume from last year to scare kids with (see last year's blog post http://coreycase.blogspot.com/2011/11/halloween.html ) but just ended up looking like the happiest corpse on the planet or beyond.


Lastly, I will show you the children's pumpkin carving efforts.  Actually "designing" efforts on Lukah and Cal's as I had to do the actual carving from their drawings.  Now if we had only remembered to actually light them before trick or treating was over.  Oooops.  Well, here's Mikah's.


Lukah's creation.


And lastly, Cal's.


We actually handed out candy this year because for the first time, the kids were all too old.  However, if I went by some of the trick or treaters that I had, I'm not too sure that I'm too old.  One of the last ones we had actually sported a full beard.  It was real, too, and I think his wife was trick or treating with him.  Oh well, we actually had a half of a bowl left over so we get some treats now that there is none to steal, uh I mean "borrow" from the kids.  Hope you all had a
 HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
