hallowe'ens past...

every year for hallowe'en, two of our best friends host an awesome, spooky, super crazy fun hallowe'en bash. and every year, the costumes get better and better. secrecy abounds in the weeks leading up to the event, and trying to figure out everyone's costume is tons of fun, as hints are dropped here and there. our group of friends go pretty much all-out for the occasion, and seem to raise the bar every year. it's definitely my favourite annual gathering, one my friends and i look forward to with delight as the night approaches. here are just a few pics of some of my fav costumes from hallowe'ens past. {hope you all don't mind my sharing them, thanks friends!}

from top :: dog + beth, gargamel, animal + janice , bender + leela

in the past 8 years, we've had parties with indiana jones; zoolander + katinka + mugatu; dee snyder; kiss [the whole band]; courtney love; prince; slash + axel; michael jackson [red silk shirt phase]; sally; shaggy + velma; yukon cornelius + hermey the elf; popeye + olive oyl; borat, wario + waluigi; buster + lucille 2; princess mononoke; spock + captain kirk; doc + marty mcfly; sayid + john locke; edward scissorhands; lydia + beetlejuice; the paperbag princess; higgins + magnum pi; margot + richie tenenbaum, wednesday addams...the list goes on. the costumes are always very well executed, with attention to every detail and creativity to spare. can't wait to see this year's crop!

Oh, I LOVE that Gargamel costume (can you tell I was a fan of the Smurfs?!) Did he have an orange cat named Azrael too? (Ok, I had to look up how to spell that - I'm not that big of a Smurfs geek!)

These are fun pics. Thanks for sharing!
