On the Wednesday before Halloween Jenny and I carved pumpkins. I am not a huge fan of carving pumpkins, but I went out and got some when I found out that Jenny had never carved one in her life.
For my pumpkin I carved Finn, The Human from Adventure Time
Jenny carved Pusheen. Here are our finished pumpkins together on the balcony:
We both did our pumpkins free-hand. This is the first year I’ve actually carved a pumpkin I was satisfied with. I was pretty proud of my Finn pumpkin.
Earlier on in October, we went shopping for costumes. Originally, we planned to do an Ash / Pikachu couples costume, but that turned out to be more work than we were willing to do.
We decided to go a different route. I went with “raver Kanye FBII agent West.”
There’s a lot of pieces to this costume, and it’s got a lot of depth. I suppose the shutter shades could be considered as part of the “raver” portion of the costume, but I like to think of it as a whisper of Kanye West. The FBII vest and cap are for my character’s side job as an FBII agent (Federal Bureau of Investigations of Investigations).
I also added some handcuffs and more glow sticks on Halloween day.
Jenny decided on her costume pretty last minute. It was a pretty clever costume though, for very cheap:
At work, we had a costume contest so a lot of people dressed up. Harper went as Abel:
JT let me borrow his banana suit for some photos. My costume got even more complex.
