grant is a geographic information systems analyst (mapper) for a living. awesome work costume, right? seemed the only way to go. and it even looks freaky which i wasn't expecting so much. yikes. also i wasn't expecting how hard this was to make from a vintage globe...think about it. it was very hard.
cate and i are usually witches. but this year i totally agreed with her very specific non-witch costume design as she is the defender of all animals and a collector of webkinz. this is soooo her. and she wanted to be something no one else at school would be (which makes me so proud). her tag says official elementary zoo keeper, please use caution around the animals.
as for me, my costume is a person who isn't making a big deal out of halloween. cause i usually go bananas- candlelit dinner parties, hocus pocus all day everyday, pumpkins everywhere, including handknit ones. this year, all i could muster was drawing on my chalkboard for cate to come home to. ah well, happy halloween and be safe!
