I know it's a little late to be posting Halloween stuff, but I guess I'm just a little slow. I made some posts before the big event, but none since. Here goes.
We had a good Halloween. We dressed in a common theme (picture to follow). Maggie was a beautiful princess. Her costume came from a dress we got two years ago when we dressed as Napolean Dynamite and Deb. She modified it (getting rid of the big sleeves), as well as making a slip to make the skirt poof. As a finishing touch, she borrowed a tiara from my sister Dani.
Ian was a dragon (not a dinosaur). Maggie made the costume herself, using a pattern and fleece for the material. When she made it, we figured it would be a cold night, but when Halloween rolled around, it was not. As a result, I think Ian was a little warm, but he survived. He makes a cute dragon.
I, Sean, was a knight. Maggie made me a hauberk from some silver netting she got for cheap at WalMart, which worked great. I also made use of my black cloak. The day before, I made a kite shield, which I covered in aluminum foil, as well as a breastplate (also covered in foil). I really wanted have a good crest, but am not much of an artist, so I used my resources: google. All the dragon crests were very complicated, except one picture of a dragon I found. It was Trogdor. I borrowed the image, printed it and colored. Ta da, the perfect crest.
Earlier in the day, for lunch, Maggie made a great meal. I don't know what she did with his body, but she borrowed Frankensteins brains. I was a little queasy of the idea at first, but they turned out really well. With a little pepper, I couldn't complain. She is a great cook, even when using questionable ingredients.
Halloween was great, although the drive to Camp Williams at 3am the next day was the longest I have yet to make.
