Lancelot Link? What/who is a Link?

I like the Sanders/Chicken combo. Can't wait to see the pictures.

Sigh.
Just gonna be a random character dressed up again with a wig & make-up.
It's not the same over here.

But I do have a goodly store of decorations now to entice the childer down my dark, dark path.
Will take photos if I can.
Looking forward to see others'.

Just cross your fingers for unusually dry/ mild weather for me.
Or cross your legs for terrible wind.

He's the main character from Legend of Zelda.

we were all talking about different themes and video game characters was one option.. Spencer locked onto Link, but the rest of us couldn't decide on good ones.... so he's going his own way.

I don't think I'll be anything this year.

But I'll help my son fashion a chainsaw out of some foam board for his lumberjack costume. He made an axe, but this is for a party at school, and there's a good chance they will consider an axe to be a weapon and won't let him bring it in. Not to mention you know that some of the other kids will actually want to use his axe as a weapon. "Let me see your axe for a second." *chop* *chop* *chop*

I don't have anywhere to go on Hallowe'en this year; even if I did, all the costumes I've sewn in the past are back in PA. I'll enjoy the pics of other dwellars' costumes. I like the Sanders/chicken pairing too!

Yeah... Spencer ordered that sword in the picture. I had it shipped to MY house, though... he didn't notice until the shipping email came... it's a real sword... so he will get a long lecture when I hand it to him. He has knives and a tomahawk, so I trust him... but still.

He's not going to school with it, is he? (Is he home schooled? I forget.) Anyway, school administrators will go apeshit over a real sword.

Waitwhut?! You're thinking a chainsaw will go over better than an axe?

Kindergarteners get tossed out over a Poptart gnawed into a vague gun shape...I'm guessing you'll be posting from Leavenworth after "The Great Foamboard Chainsaw Debacle of 2013".

Heh. Yeh. Well, battle axes were real weapons, but chainsaws have only ever been improvised weapons in movies. And he's going as a lumberjack, not as Ash.
