2008 Costume Unveiled

2008 Halloween costume is... a late 80's American Gladiator. I'm still bouncing back and forth between Lace and Diamond, both admirable gladiators in their own rights.

I took a blue swimsuit and sewed silver, shiny fabric onto it then applied some felt stars with fabric glue. My jousting pole (not pictured) was fashioned from PVC pipe, pillow batting, grey duct tape and red duct tape. It's ideal for knocking the "contenders" off their pedestals during my favorite round of American Gladiation—the joust.  

I'll be wearing my suntan-colored nylons and clunky tennis shoes tonight and also plan to crimp my hair if I have time. This morning was not the time to be crimping hair.

(Forgive the photo, as I took it using Photobooth on my work Mac since I don't have a camera. I will post additional photos following the party tonight.)

I think David Naugle wants to take some photos later - and I should have some more from tonight's party. Since I am camera-less (argggh!) I have to rely on others photographic generosity. Enjoy your day off!

And yes, a few others dressed up! Molly is a go-go girl (same as last year, I believe), Laura - a stepford wife, Matt - a devil, I think, Kathy - some kind of silly hat (I need to figure out what she is), Devon - Wicked Witch of the East.

But golf claps are quite, subdued claps. That's not good!
