Halloween

Is it too early to talk about Halloween? I think not! Especially when your costume revolves around getting Mr. T to make something for you. We probably should have started last November!

Last year we had a Rocky Horror Picture Show themed party. And it was a lot of fun! We had a good portion of the cast show up, and there were no duplicates. Hooray for my friends! 8}


It was a lot of fun and everyone said we should do it again this year. We're thinking maybe doing a different theme, though... If you know Mr. T you can probably guess what it's going to be.

Yup - Ghostbusters!

Mr. T already has a jumpsuit with his name tag and a No Ghost symbol on the sleeve, along with a pretty nifty proton pack. So now I need a costume!! I'm just going to go to Goodwill and look for khaki clothing, so the only important piece of the costume would be the proton pack.

How should we dress up the dogs? We attempted to make Splinter into Rocky for last year, by spray painting one of my niece's diapers gold and making him wear it. But the spray paint destroyed the glue holding the little wings to the diaper, so it fell apart when we tried to put it on him. Cue the sad trombone music now: *wah, waaaaaaaah*

We also bought Chairman a little bowtie - not related to Rocky Horror in any way. We just thought it was cute. But it disappeared as soon as we got home. Still haven't found the stupid thing. Maybe it will turn up by October. lol!
