“Life all comes down to a few moments. This is one of them.”


the title is a quote from one of the two characters in my 80s costume mash up. the other character is easy to guess but only a few at work could guess the quote character with suspenders, power tie and a giant cell phone.

in a bit of trivia, the corncob standing next to me is wearing an outfit i wore six years ago in a local parade while i handed out ov milk and string cheese.

i can’t remember if i wore any underwear but i think he’s probably ok either way 🙂

day 3042: the 2012 halloween crew! I.

can you spot odin?

day 3042: the 2012 halloween crew! II.

oh, o.k. i’ll make it a little easier for you. odin and i were dressed-up as matching, well, i’m not quite sure what we dressed-up as. maybe ringwraiths?

i cobbled the costume together a few years ago from this and that and have discovered it’s very disconcerting to young and old alike, possibly because i’m taller than your average joe and people can’t see my face. it’s big fun to sneak up next to unsuspecting trick-or-treaters and just loom over them without saying a word.

odin so enjoyed the effect that he decided he wanted to dress up like his poppi this year 🙂

day 2311: odin The Very Ferocious Bear.

this halloween odin wanted to be a Very Ferocious Bear who, apparently, wears rainboots.

kris did a fine job whipping up an intimidating costume for him, although i kept slipping up and telling him how cute he looked and he kept reminding me how ferocious he was.

we started the evening by attending a fun production of the lion, the witch and the wardobe at a local park but i was dressed as tall, dark, creepy, black caped and hooded alien without a face and just a hint of the angel of death costume which did a good job of unnerving adults & children but made taking photos impossible.

i did manage to get a cute photo of odin The Very Ferocious Bear and a Princess friend before donning my mask.

later, odin The Very Ferocious Bear met met up with some buddies and hit the streets to scare the heck of local townsfolk. or, rather, briefly stun them with their overwhelming cuteness so they would hand out just a bit more candy than usual.
