Costume Edits

I don’t know why I find this quote so entertaining, but I do. I think it fits all of us perfectly!

I made this is photoshop using clipping masks and ran Pioneer Woman’s “Colourized” action at 65% opacity. You can see my originals here.

I mentioned previously that I had spent a fair amount of time working on our Halloween costumes. What did we go as? Final Fantasy XII characters! I don’t expect any of you to know who they are (especially if you follow me on Pinterest and wonder why the heck I kept pinning all these crazy costumes), but I’m Ashe and Mr Bean was Balthier. Look and see for a comparison:

Not quite cosplay worthy, but pretty good, hey? Mr. Bean’s mum helped me with most of the sewing as I am not very good at it but I made all the armour out of craft foam, which was fairly time consuming! Fortunately for us, we were able to wear our costumes three times, which helps justifying the amount of time I spent on them. But I had fun, so it’s worth it anyways!

We have some pretty awesome friends who have some pretty awesome costumes. Apparently many of them want to shoot me (I count four):

A bunch of us are pretty silly as well:

You can't see it, but his rugby jersey from Wales says "Brains"

These two won best couple costume!

How was your Halloween? Did you go to any Halloween Parties?

Apparently I eat too much…

… Halloween Candy. For this is what Mr. Bean posted on one of our cupboards in the kitchen:


Thanks, Mr. Bean. (Needless to say that I did find this a bit entertaining.)

But it my defense, I did take the almost equivalent of the bowl on the left to work. And some to our friend’s house.

food-photos-016This is all our halloween candy. We had no kids come to our door.

Anyone else feeling the effects of too much halloween candy? I wish I could do this, but I don’t eat candy very frequently, so get quite excited at the prospect of lots of it. I’m definitely going to have to hit the gym this week. (Especially now that it’s started snowing and I can’t bike. Alas.)

Does anyone you know help you keep on the straight and narrow in terms of diet?
