Halloween costume pictures

First the animals. Scoots the grey tabby, and Baloo the German shepherd went to an animal costume contest as Red Riding Hood, and The Wolf in Grandmother's Clothing, respectively.
**They won hands down.**

Scoots was fully enclosed in a cloth bag, with the paws being stuffed fakes. No scratching, no arguments. Matthew called him the "living hand puppet."
It was necessary in a pet store full of other competing costumed dogs. Being 14 and pretty a pretty laid back cat, we didn't have any trouble with him.

These pictures of Baloo only show her in the hat and glasses.
She did have a matching nightgown of the same pink daisy material, in this pic without the bedcap:

Now for us. I went as the mushroom guy from Super Mario brothers, but as fate would have it, only one picture of me turned out. My big paper mache head broke halfway through the night too. Bad luck!

Here is Matthew as an entire Thanksgiving dinner. The reaction of people was unbelievable. Walking through the street party downtown with this 6'3" "Tableman", as people were calling him was simply amazing. About 50 strangers took pictures with him, fondled his food, and generally worshipped him. Watching the reactions was actually surreal. Have a look.

The turkey is paper mache, the buns are real, and glued down, the gravy was just painted cardboard, the potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, and cranberries are all real food that I just put a silicone glaze over. (except the mashed potatoes which just sort of hardened up all by themselves!)
The fruit, of course is just fake plastic stuff bought at a craft store.
The table itself is a piece of compressed styrofoam. With all the stuff on it, it was kind of heavy so that is why we needed to put pads on his shoulders.

We found a comfortable spot at one point and lit up all his candles! Romantic!
