We got some pretty scary masks at KMart. Darrin went as a "Crypt Creature" and Darrell went as a werewolf. That is actually me in the skeleton mask but you'd never guess from this picture.
Werewolf and son. Darrell opened the door for the trick or treaters like this. He only made one baby cry but he kind of freaked out a preteen girl, too. I had warned him that making children cry might be a problem!!
We went to two Halloween parties over the weekend. I didn't have a mask, I went as a lumberjack with a makeup beard. Of course I was just about the only female not to go as something sexy. Hehe. I make a pretty convincing man I guess. Nobody knew me at the parties as one was thrown by Darrin's friend and another by Darrin's professor. One of the professors at the party said he was a bit freaked out by what he thought was a "very gay" couple (me and Darrell). I mean I was bored by not knowing anyone so I cuddled up to Darrell. Well, they deserve to be freaked out. I saw some people do a double take when I wandered into the light. They were probably thinking, "Wait, why is that guy wearing a fake beard?"
(I'm 6'1" and I had on a huge flannel shirt)
OK, this one is a pretty lame picture, but this is Darrell as a girl werewolf and me as a lumberjack. (He went as a boy werewolf the day we were mistaken for a gay couple.)
