Happy Halloween!

Well I still feel rather icky so I didn't do anything for Halloween besides staying home with apple pie (the drink) that we had made to take to the party. Riley did take me to the humane society to hang out with puppies to make me feel better. It was awesome! There was this little tiny weimaraner that I wanted to steal and cuddle forever! Her name was Snowy but she's only five weeks old and already 20lbs so I know there's no way we could keep her. Also there was a gianormous boxer mix in isolation that we played chase with through the fence. (Exerting myself a little too much but it was so much fun.)

But even though I am not doing anything interesting for Halloween I did make a Peter Pan costume for my friend Meghan down in Southern Oregon and my mom went and got a picture of her so I could see how it turned out. 
From my mom's iPhone so not the best quality
I am really proud of it ^_^. Apparently though people think she's Robin Hood .... I don't get it but people are silly. But yeah costuming I did some!

Zombie Zombie Schoolgirl Zombie!

So this weekend was the zombie walk and since I made a costume up for it I thought I would share the photo since I haven't had anything else to put up here.
Grr Argh! Photo by Coyote's Childe
You can't see the skirt I actually made, but that's because it was getting rainy so the camera went away pretty early. You also can't see the rips I went to great lengths to make all over that top. I did get an awesome shot of Riley and I together that showcases our awesome makeup (By Coyote's Childe)

It was an awesome walk and only a little rainy which wasn't to bad anyway since I thought it was going to be worse and planned ahead and turned my boyfriend into a ZOMBRELLA!

 I should have thought more ahead to try to hide the tape. It looked more believably stabbed into him from behind but I really just didn't feel like trying to get sick when I really wasn't feeling too hot when we started. ( I have an ear/ sinus infection that I have been trying to home treat and hoping it will just go away but I may have to see a doctor soon.) We did get some complaints about it when we were trying to watch the dance. Honestly though it was a rainy day in Portland. There were umbrellas everywhere and ours was not more or less an offender than any other. I know it's frustrating not to be able to see but there was a reason the website told you to come early if you wanted a decent viewing option.

Sorry for the mini-rant but people annoy me. It was a really fun event otherwise and hopefully the rain helped clean up and make sure the walk didn't cause too much property damage.
