OK, I already wrote about some of my home-crafted costumes and last-minute jobs, but I found this photo that reminded me of a Halloween party my friend Tony threw one year.
Mary and I made our costumes again that year – Death and the Hershey Bar. (Sounds like a great band name…) Not my best work but I spent some time on it. Mary’s was one she’d made in high school, but it still fit. Tony, per usual, wore his Darth Vader outfit.
Dave had to work that day at the liquor store, and at quitting time he still didn’t have a costume. Looking at one of the displays, he asked the owner, “Can I have that?”
Mix in a few minutes, some scissors, and voila! The best last minute costume I’ve ever seen.
