A Rotting, Putrid Pile of Mildew, Mold, and Flies

It's finally here!
The day of magic and suspended disbelief, 
a day to ward the evil from your home and dress in 
whatever fantasy your fetid mind concocts!
It's Blessed Samhaim for some, with a formal dinner to welcome the benevolent, loved spirits
of the past to join the feast,
All Hallow's Eve for others,
and Halloween for the children in all of us.
 Costumes abound!
 Yes, that is The Husband!
Yes, that was his hair!
 Yes, I took this picture!
No, I'm not telling you what's under his kilt!
 The comic geeks in the crowd may recognize this as Kevin Matchstick.

 A little Cos Play costuming.
Savannah's hair was done with drinking straws and an entire can of Aqua Net.
It took six months for the ozone to recover.
 Samwow as the Joker and Thom as Neo.
And again, that's Samwow's hair.

 But before you throw on the Michael Jackson and Thriller the night away, 
we have one thing still to do...
The Pumpkin!
They're the last thing done around here so it lasts the tropical evening without becoming a
putrid pile of mildew, mold, and flies.
Scary, yes.
Palatable, no.
If you need some inspiration in that department, scroll on down!

I don't know about you, but we'll be staying in costume.

And Who Are You Supposed to Be?

It's Halloween here in Rehab, and the only thing we've yet to show you is that 
last, crucial, vital part of the hoopla~
We dare not disparage those who buy a clever disguise.
By all means, do it.
Here in this house, year after year, we've gone for the weird and homemade visiage
to fool our friends and family.
If you still haven't pulled together your garments,
allow us to lay out inspiration galore.
Here's an added challenge:
Can you name every one?
MAJOR cool points if you can!
Because, really, how good is a costume if no one knows what you're supposed to be?
(If you're over the age of 25 and you get this one, it's a triple score!)
You have a possible score of 34!
How do you think you did?
Answers will be provided tomorrow while I'm getting goodies together for our
Movie Themed Gathering,
The Silver Scream Soiree!
