  • Arguably the coolest Halloween costumes ever

    With a to Phillygirl, a couple of the coolest Halloween costumes I think I've ever seen:














    And my comment is: I bet they get a little nervous if anyone comes around them with a magnifying glass.
    Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

    They really are sooo cool! Definitely in the realm of "why didn't I think of that"?

    Sort of like the year a neighbor girl and her friend went as a 4 pack roll of toilet paper. It was so cool. So the next year my friend and I went as a box of Kleenex. We realized we were making such slow time at getting to the houses we'd never get decent candy...so we ditched the box, and took turns using the sheet that was the tissue and went up to the doors as a ghost, with no holes cut out for seeing or breathing. It was a long night.
    Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live...

      Those are cool!

      Some other cool costumes with a to Dallas:

      May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
      Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
      And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
      may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

                I'll have some to post tomorrow. HRH and friends made their own costumes and they're really cute. They've just gone out to wander about and do the local haunted homes. This little community is like living in a time warp. No taking the kids to "trick-or-treat" at the mall or rec center. Groups of real children in costume are roaming the avenues, little ones with parents or older sibs a discreet distance behind, the ones from about 9 to early teens in groups of friends. Houses are seriously decorated, and some people have made haunted yards, tents or rooms in their homes. Last year there was a street party at the main intersection. I didn't come home that way tonight, but I don't doubt there will be something going on along the main drag. Quite the nostalgia trip.

                And after I had thought of it,

                  They don't do that everywhere? That was my drive home from work tonight.

                    I think it was Adam who mentioned in another thread that he gets no trick-or-treaters. My mom had 2, driven in from a less hospitable neighborhood. Lots of places have been encouraging self-contained events at churches and recreation centers instead of free-form trick-or-treating from house to house. Some towns move the night to the nearest weekend so kids aren't sleepy and full of candy the next day. Half the fun of Halloween is that it's pretty much the only minor holiday that hasn't been moved to a Monday. Moving it to Friday or Saturday kind of ruins it.

                      It's sort of a big thing here. Really big. Kids all night.
