Hooray for Halloween!

You should go as one of the rapists from Ms. 45.
that's a little too much of a back of the shelf deep cut for this part of rural maryland. also she'd never dress up as a nun.

i could do overly sensitive 70s male professor if i had a sweater. and a copy of iron john. and a pipe. a legit pipe i mean.
That's a cable-knit sweater. But better yet would be tweed sport coat with patches on the elbows.

This is amazing.
The Moana costume, made by Disney, is marketed to girls ages three and older. The top of the dress is strapless, and the bottom, a straw skirt, comes to the knee with a slit up the front that goes all the way past mid-thigh. I wouldn’t wear it to a business meeting; so why would I allow my preschooler to wear it trick or treating?
I on the other hand have an adult version of Mojito's Captain America costume that I save for critical meetings with big customers.

Did she even look at what Moana is actually dressed in? It seems like a fairly accurate representation of the actual character. It's certainly not some "Sexy Moana" costume.

For some observers, all Moana costumes are sexy Moana costumes.

Alright All Hallows Evians! At last the moment you've all been waiting for. Wait no more.
I give you this year's Jack-O-Lantern.

In keeping with the finest traditions of my people,
and very much the spirit of the season ;)

Jack-O-Lanterns do not age well, and the more intricately carved the faster they elderize. This year several factors conspired against me and poor Jack looks like he was in the ground a year or two and we just dug him up for the occasion. Pro tip: Dunk the freshly carved pumpkin in bleach water to prevent rot, and spray inside and out with WD-40 to prevent drying out.

Would giving these out at Halloween get me a call from CPS? Asking for a friend.

We had about 100 unique kids come by, with about 10 doing the double-dip (and one apparently really embarrassed by it). Seemed like that was less than in the past, tho.

Wow. Good to know there are still communities keeping the old ways alive.
I get so few ToT's (6 this year) double dipping isn't an issue. I am galled by the impudence of some that expect candy while making no effort with costume.

I have a hard time wrapping my head around that. Like how is that cool? You're spending your evening scamming people out of cheap candy. Really? Nothing better to do? Here kid, have a Snickers, I feel sorry for you.
