Halloween 2008

On the previous post, Lori pointed out that it would be difficult for Jeff to top his costume from last year. Teen Wolf was spectacular. However, the craftsmanship of Jeff's costume this year was stellar.

Inspired by "Donnie Darko," Jeff created his entire costume from head to toe.

Meet Frank:

Isn't he creepy? Jeff did an amazing job with that mask. I was very proud to be his date at the Halloween Party on Friday night.

As for me, I decided to give in to comments that I resembled this person... why not? It did get me a Best Costume prize on Friday night AND a second place win at work...

So, I became Governor Sarah Palin for the day:

Some say this costume wasn't THAT difficult to pull off. But, I beg to differ. Important elements that HAD to be included in the costume:

+ Flag pin (surprisingly difficult to find)
+ Palin eyewear (thanks Ky)
+ The hair- had to tease it just so

We had a great halloween... thanks Jeremy and Jer for an AMAZING party, which included a live band that played an incredible set. (For the record, I had "Gangster Paradise" stuck in my head ALL night.)

See more amazing costumes here.
