Notes on Halloween Weekend

In the spirit of Halloween, here's a shot I picked up at the Lady Gaga concert a couple months ago. My favorite thing going on is the Adidas paired with the teddy bears. It really grounds the outfit.

We will definitely have trick-or-treaters tonight. I should probably take a tally of costumes--the paper said Chilean coal miner and of course Lady Gaga are hot this year.

Micah ran the Monster Dash Half Marathon yesterday that went from Lake Nokomis to Lake Calhoun and finished at Lake Harriet. 86th out of 3600! Gus wore his bumblebee costume and got photographed multiple times by multiple official race photographers. Call it exploitation on my part, but really, I think we warmed a lot of hearts out there. Only the grinchiest Grinch doesn't break into a wide smile at the sight of a small dog with expressive eyebrows dressed as an even more diminutive creature.

The closest thing we've gotten to a horror movie this weekend would be watching Precious last night. I would consider chainsaws tame in comparison. And that's enough on that.

Gus's costume for this evening is undecided. We can reprise the bumblebee with now-tattered wings, or pull out the police man or the hot dog. Or a bumblebee police man. Notice that we stopped at three year's worth of costumes and are now recycling. Tonight's choice will, of course, depend on his mood. If I were to decide at this moment, I'd say static cling...with a dash of hot dog.

I'm not going to lie, I seriously considered being Lady Gaga for Halloween. The choice between the warmth of a cozy lumberjack costume complete with a flannel shirt and Sorel snow boots overcame the potential for accidentally exposing myself in spray on lycra.
And in relation to Gus's costume, I took many photos of the "Hoppy Hour" at the Humane Society in Golden Valley where there was a bunny costume contest.
There was a lobster bunny.

Wish we could have chatted more yesterday!
Hope all is lovely :)
