Woot woot! My favorite holiday of the year is upon us and this year it's a three day event.
Day 1 will be our Hallowe'en party at work and a mid-day assembly at William's school which I will run to during my lunch break. I just threw together my costume tonight and think it looks pretty darn good if I must say so myself. A coworker had suggested that she and I go as Snooki and The Situation from Jersey Shore. I said sure and to my knowledge at 11pm she has backed out and may not even wear a costume. I'm hoping she's just trying to get me going but time will tell. Here is my costume without some makeup to make me look tanned and maybe some greasy hair.
Day 2 is Saturday... I will spend the day with William but that evening I will be attending a Hallowe'en party in the south end of Halifax. There are 34 confirmed guests and many pending or still maybes. The party is expected to be epic... and epic is what a friend called my costume in it's first form. This is the work in progress version I have taken a pic of. I will hopefully finish the costume tonight or tomorrow evening. It's not work appropriate and part of me is shocked that I am actually going to head out in public in this costume... but I figure I have to step up my game. The crew hosting the party are known for stellar costumes and there is a contest so go big or go home... or in my case be brave or go home. And let's face it, I'm gay and not getting any younger... no time like the present to be Robin (sidekick of Batman).
Day 3 will be October 31st. I will be taking William trick-or-treating along with my ex-wife. I always dress up, so I will again sport the Jersey Shore costume and we'll take a neighborhood in Sackville by storm. William is dressing as Waldo, from Where's Waldo and I made his costume.
Let the festivities begin!! Happy Hallowe'en Weekend y'all!
