Halloween Recap 2010

Remember this entry in which I donned wore a Milhouse costume?

And in 2008... did not blog about this... but here I am as a Tinkerbell. Thinking back to that Halloween, I was working two jobs and had the worst commute. I rushed to get ready for that year's brother-in-law (to be, at the time) party.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I don't like hassling with a costume, but I do like its significance -- that is, the REAL beginning of the holidays!

As for my 2010 costume? See below, but in the meantime, I leave you with some shots of Halloweens past:

Above: 2006

Above: Also 2006.

Above: 2009 -- I mostly worked on the Mario.

And now, 2010. The bro-in-law party theme was: Tim Burton Movies.

Here's the inspiration of the costumes. I cheated a little and went with the cartoon version, because I don't have any resemblance to Winona Ryder.

Here's me without the poncho-thing.... This is more accurate to the Madonna-type fashion in the Tim Burton Beetlejuice movie...

I brought vegan brownies, and we also brought Daiya quesadillas. I got the brownies right this time. =) The secret is... a capful of oil, and instead of chocolate chips, smash up a huge block of dairy-free chocolate!

I thought I'd include this pic from the Friday before Halloween at work. We had elementary school kids coming to our building to trick-or-treat. I had a simple costume that looked something like this, worn with a skirt, tights, and boots. People kept telling me I looked cute. One even said, "Honey, you can get your food downstairs," which was a nice gesture, but that food was set up for the kids.

I don't mind being mistaken for being younger, but come on, people.

And finally, my carving that I brought over to the Tim Burton party!
