Here's Magoo in his phoenix costume. You've seen the mask/hat before, but here's the full costume. It's a little disco fabulous, a little Blades of Glory - but he loves it. And yes, that's me behind him. Oh, I love a matchy-matchy costume set.
I didn't intend to match him this year. Mike always teases me that my relationship with my boy is a little too much like Lucille and Buster Bluth from Arrested Development. But Magoo wanted to be a phoenix and I already had my costume. I made it years ago when I took a mask making class in Boston. How could I not use it?!?!? That would be crazy! I got a lot of stares on the street and made two little children cry. :0
We met up with O & G, who were dressed as a ninja and Indiana Jones. Then we hit the streets. Oh - they were excited boys dashing for house from house. Halloween is a very spazzy time for boys and even though Magoo knows he can't eat any of the candy he collects, he still has a blast getting it and then trading it in at the end of the night. (This year he got Star Wars Mighty Beanz and a bag of Fritos in return.)
And here's what happens when you eat too much candy on Halloween night, boys and girls:
You toss your guts!
Hope you all had a fabulous Halloween!
