Halloween 2008 Photos

It would be nice if I could figure out how to format photos on Blogger, but I'm not spending any time on that today. Here you see the modern family decked out for Halloween. We have, top left and moving clockwise, Dr. Horrible from Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog, a Funny Hat, a Viking Pizza Delivery Man, and Cinderella.
I'd like to point out that at least 3 people recognized me as Dr. Horrible, and not just a mad scientist. This is a first among my obscure costumes. However, I enjoyed the fact that even folks who didn't get that I was doing a specific mad scientist could appreciate that I was a mad scientist.
It's all in the retro goggles (cut from an army surplus gas mask that I got in a garage sale). Neither the coat nor the gloves nor the goggles are truly accurate to the Dr. Horrible mold, but the goggles give people the right idea.
My older daughter's Hat costume makes me feel giddy, and I enjoyed how my son put together a mashup costume from stuff he found in our dress-up box. They both seemed to enjoy handling it themselves.
