Happy Halloween

The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland

We threw a giant Halloween party last night – it raged all night and well past the wee hours of the morning, and was filled with a very colourful cast of characters including crocdiles, bears, the god Pan, walruses, pixies, vikings, Walmart shoppers, pirates, wood nymphs, wrestlers, hipsters, shrubbery, road kill, Cruella Deville, muskateers, Betty Boop, gypsies, a flamingo that looked a little like a transvestite with a lawn ornament on his head, and a giant penis (not entirely well thought out – he could neither move nor sit, although he did receive many hugs which seemed to make up for the complete lack of mobility).  Tyler and I had a blast setting up for the event.  Every inch of the house was decorated and we carved four pumpkins, including one for the Threadkins contest (Threadless’ pumpkin carving competition).  I hope you enjoy the photos from the event and had a wonderful Halloween yourself.

The Threadkins pumpkin design based on the pelican oil slick design Threadless put out as a fundraiser for the Gulf oil spill
