Happy Halloween everyone! I just wanted to share a few pictures from Saturday (aka Halloween Observed). We had lots of fun down at the Hyde Park Art Center during the day and I think my costume was a hit. It was pretty funny because even though all of the kids seemed to be intrigued by me, the lady wearing giant pictures of herself, almost none of them actually knew what I was. Photobooths might just be a little before their time. A friend said, "Don't worry, once they grow up and start going to awesome bars, they'll understand." The best part was when a little French girl's mother explained to her that I was a "Passport Photo." I loved that.
Later on in the evening we went to Hallowmas, a party at HQ in Chicago with a variety show. It was great, the whole place was decked out spookily. Creepy twins led you inside, there was a room for carving pumpkins, a place to have your palm read, you could play chess with a voodoo king. And during the show an amazing barbershop quartet sang House of the Rising Sun.
But the very best part was how they had a room set up to take Post Mortem portraits of all the guests. What a great idea for a Halloween party.
I can't wait to give out candy tonight. I give double candy for homemade costumes (of course I do), so I hope I see some good ones. Happy Halloween!
|Alexandra, who just looked more beautiful the crazier her costume got.|
|Tahnee, as Suzy Bishop. This is my absolute favorite picture. Perfectly creepy.|
