I was a Hobo. Ashley was a Fairy. Caleb was a Snack-o-Lantern. Get it?
So we spent Halloween at Ashley’s parents’ house. It’s fast becoming tradition for me to take Alyssa out trick-or-treating each year. I did it last year while Erika was having Noah and I did it this year because her mom didn’t want to and Ashley’s costume would not keep her warm enough. So I grabbed my hobo stick and we went trick-or-treating. 99% of the people we passed thought I was a hitchhiker. *sigh* Nobody seems to know what a hobo is anymore. One lady actually guessed that I was a hobo and after I told her that no one else got it, she said, “People these days don’t know anything.” She gets cool points for that, whoever she is.
So my costume consisted of my hiking boots, jeans, a long sleeve black shirt with holes in the sleeves for my thumbs and a too-small partially faded Mustang shirt. I found a stick behind their house and Ashley made me a little bag for it. I also had a little make-up on my face to make me look dirty.
Ashley’s costume was homemade from a few old prom dresses she’s been trying (and failing) to sell on eBay. Her wings were coat hangers and a sheer fabric.
Caleb was a snack-o-lantern. That means he was wearing a onesie with a carved pumpkin holding a hotdog and soda. Fitting, considering how much he eats.
Alyssa was a punk rocker. We tried to get her mom to be a “Got Milk?” ad, but she backed out. Here’s the pics.
NOTE: I lost the pics somewhere along the line… if I find them, I’ll upload them again.
