We outlasted the Trick or Treaters this Halloween!

I wore my dark-brown Jedi robe over an oatmeal-colored cardigan that I belted, and got identified as Yoda twice. Um? (We looked it up--the colors he wears are opposite--dark below, light above.) Toby wore his Sith robe and had to explain that he was the Emperor.

Anyway, no tiny Reys, much to my disappointment, but the costume of the year for small girls, other than an array of bees and ladybugs, was Batgirl. (Or Batman with a skirt. We didn't ask.)

Also, in general, I feel that if you're old enough to start to grow a mustache, you're probably too old to be Trick or Treating, but given that this particular kid and his two friends were getting into the spirit of the thing and dressing up and saying "Trick or Treat!" instead of just wearing a T-shirt with a skull on it and stomping sullenly up to the door expecting candy, I'll give them a pass.

The two kids dressed as a Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren were properly impressed at our Jedi & Sith robes and our lightsabers, though!

(The only problem with Halloween is that you're surrounded by kids so I can't bust out with Toby's line that broke his gaming group when they were playing a Star Wars game:Read more...Collapse )
