Lo, Samhain! Tonight's for gathering with friends and a fire, and maybe the extra candy from the night before.

But first, Halloween pictures. Hah.

Rachel; an Egyptologist, and David; a mummy. Both are awesome. They introduced me to the big crazy costume party in the central west end, whereupon the following images were collected.

The whole Mushroom Kingdom turns up in St. Louis. (Bonus points for giving the Toad costume to the biggest guy in the group.)

Going to a costume party with your buddy dressed like Goose and Maverick would be acceptable effort, but these doods built themselves a goddamn cardboard fighter and wore it all night. F*cking impressive, gentlemen. XD

I am a Carmen Sandiego nut, and I think I scared this poor girl. Much to my disappointment, no-one came dressed as Inspector Gadget... we could have had an epic battle of early-90s crime-themed cartoon characters.

Why dress up like a vampire or witch when you could be the happy lady from the Honey Bunches of Oats commercials? I bet Michael Phelps wishes he'd thought of that.

A vampire apple and a battered banana. No, I don't know why, but damnit, I liked their style.

Thanks, guys. I'd never get out of the house if it weren't for you. :D

Honey Bunches of Oats lady?
That made me soul weep for the winnage it is made of.

By the way, I'm Alex, nice to meet you.
