Halloween is Done for Another Year
The great thing about everyone showing up as Green Lanterns? Until there's 7300 of you or so, there really aren't too many. That's Reed and Your Friendly Neighborhood League.
I want to thank so many of our friends for coming by on Halloween night! I know there are infinite options on such a night (and its one night that if you stayed in and watched horror movies rather than show up for a party, I might believe you weren't just blowing me off), so thanks to all for getting dressed up and joining us at League HQ.
We had a lot of trick-or-treaters, who started around 6:30 and wrapped it up around 9:00. Our first guest showed up to watch the game around 7:15, and so we were sort of dividing attention for a bit there. Happily, almost everyone wound up in a costume of one sort or another.
In the end we had:
Green Lantern: Ryan
Zombie thing: Jason (Jason also helped hand out candy and gave the kids a spooky experience)
Green Lantern: Reed
Tippi Hedren from The Birds: Nicole
Rod Taylor from The Birds: Matt
Tippi Hedren from The Birds: Tania
a cat burglar: Justin
Project Runway contestant: Jonathan
Project Runway model: Billi Jo
MadMen Don Draper: Steven
MadMen Joan Holloway: Lauren
Super Pat: Pat
Knight from The Holy Grail: Juan G
Punky Brewster: Letty
Star Fleet Officer: Julia
Here are pictures by Julia that I swiped from Facebook
Julia actually worked out her Starfleet rank. She's a Chief Engineer.
Super Pat! His power? Cheering on the Horns, anytime, anywhere.
Green Lantern and Supergirl wish you a mighty Halloween.
Don Draper (Mr. Harms) and Joan Holloway (Ms. Roth) enjoy the festivities
Garcia forgot his Holy Hand Grenade
Look, I'll be honest. Jason's costume totally freaked me out.
Matt and Nicole deal with a Hitchcockian dilemma
Billie and Jonathan rock the Project Runway thing
I know in the current age that parents have decided that they can't let their kids trick-or-treat, but our street is always swarming with kids, whose parents, I guess, aren't afraid of the urban legends about poisoned candies.
That's kind of nice.
Its also the only time we talk to our neighbors, people all seem to be in a good mood, and the kids aren't creeped out when you talk to them.
All in all, a happy Halloween!
