Last night we co-hosted a wicked awesome Halloween Party with our friends Patrick and Bonnie. We had a great turn out and it seemed like everyone had a great time. The one benefit of having a Halloween party on the day after Halloween is that you can get some great decorations for super cheap. We had tons of candles everywhere and lots of spooky skulls, spider webs and bats. The pictures don't capture the spooky lighting- we were able to light the who place with only candles and the "fireplace". Here are all the costumes for your viewing pleasure:
Kitty Pryde, Professor Xavier and Wolverine
For those of you who don't know the obscure X Men character that I was, her real name is Katherine Anne and so that worked well with Logan being Wolverine. And it was way easier than Mystique, which was our original plan. JFYI, there's a big shadow behind me. I know I just had a baby, but I'm not that wide. The fake raven behind Logan's head (one of the great cheap decorations) makes it a little hard to see his sweet (and very real) side burns and hair. They were sprayed black but other than that it is all Logan. That's how man he is. (Man enough to wear yellow tights) Here's one where you can see the boys a little better:
Our co-hosts, Link and Zelda
Brazilian Futebol Fans
Bret from Flight of the Conchords and The Stock Market
Spaghetti and Meatballs
(Seth and Sharon made this incredible costume themselves)
Robes of the False Priesthood and Alice (Eunice's little sister)
Dinosaur and Sumo Wrestler
(Leslie's awesome battery operated fan powered costume hides her 2 days away from her due date belly quite well)
Kenneth and Frank from 30 Rock
(I seriously didn't recognize the very pretty Amelia when she first walked in- I wasn't sure who the weird dude was who was coming to our party. Excellent costumes guys. Sorry no one else watches 30 Rock other than us.)
There were a couple other people there, but they were really lame and didn't wear costumes even though we specifically said they were required. If they hadn't driven all the way from Rhode Island I would have kicked them out.
Here's a shot of the 50 or so paper bats that the Donigans and I hung from the ceiling. It looked so great. I was really happy with the way everything turned out. We had a great time. Thanks to everyone for coming. We missed those of you who couldn't make it. You'll have to come to our spooky Christmas party we'll be having in a couple of months so we can get some more milage out of all the decorations.
