We are currently separated (geographically, not maritally), so some of us are in Oregon and some are in Arizona. Both parties went out Trick or Treating…but I’ve only got my story and photos so we’ll see when the other crew coughs up something. I heard they were busy all week long planning and creating, so I’ll be very excited to see what it culminated in.
Anyways, the Portland crew (ie predominantly consisted of Seth and Maret) were STELLAR!!!
From Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak:
In the pics above (across the bottom row, L-R) is Maret, Sara (new housemate extraordinaire, & tonight’s narrator, with a touch of jungle), Seth practising his RAW’R, and Mitchell.
Maret was the creative mind behind the costumes…..amazing!!! She rummaged thru the boxes and boxes of fabric to create the terrible teeth along with the horns and claws and lizard pants. She scouted out a long skinny white teddy bear at the Goodwill that she morphed into Max’s tail! Where does she get these ideas?
Seth….Well…he’s incredible in his own right. He took a stroller and made it into a boat to light the way for MAX (that white MAX isn’t painted on…it is cut out and a solar light illuminates from behind, to help keep the boat visible out in the scary dark of Halloween traffic!).
