May I have the envelope please?

Last night was our 5th annual Halloween Party and World Series of Costuming! This year, the competition was, as always, very stiff- unfortunately, since pH and I put on the contest, we can't win our own prizes, but we try to be as creative as we can.

Here I am as TiVo:

Here's pH as Paulie Walnuts. I loved the way this came out. The white hair totally makes the costume.

Here we have Chuck Norris (his tattoos included "Don't Mess with Texas" and "Roundhouse Kicks" (both with hearts drawn around the words) and a running tally of how many guys he had killed today), a priest, and pH.

Here is one half of one of the winning costumes. Have you ever heard of that Flaming Lips song, "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots"? This is, obviously, a pink robot, and his wife was dressed as Yoshimi. I don't have a good picture of them both together, because his costume was so wide that you couldn't get anyone else in the shot. :)

Here is a Nascar driver and a member of the Yakuza. Can you believe that tattoo shirt came from Rite Aid??

And finally, here was our grand prize winner, Grumpy Day Bear.

Congratulations everyone!
