Halloween 2009

>> Monday, November 2, 2009



Time for the Gratz Industries annual Halloween party! Once again this year, Jo chose to be a witch. The old witch costume was too small, so she got a new one made up by Wendi, the whiz in the Gratz Industries costume department. The feather trim at the bottom and on the hat was Jo's idea though, and we all agreed it pretty much made the costume.



We met up with friends at a funeral home in Bakersville (it seemed apropos) and hit the town for trick-or-treating.





We did a combination of the town's organized downtown trick-or-treating and a few side streets. We live out in the boonies, where neighborhood walking isn't really possible, so the downtown festival is a really nice way to get out and trick-or-treat without having to drive to some subdivision closer to Asheville.



This time we brought a back-up bag for Jo, so she could keep loading up on the candy when her little cat bag got too full. We saw a lot of store-bought costumes (as usual) but some more creative efforts as well:





 

 

 

Not sure what that last one is supposed to be...but it gets an E for effort. Hope your Halloween was happy (and not too soggy) wherever you were!

Very nice striped stockings on Jo's costume - the Lancre witches would approve.

That's very clearly a laundry robot. Or maybe that's just my subconscious desires coming though. Man, I want a laundry robot.

I too love the striped stockings. Jo already had them and chose the black and purple fabric to match.

And I would LOVE a laundry robot. We actually have a vacuum robot (which I adore), but it needs a new battery. . .
