We went trick or treating tonight.
Natalie tried to go upscale on her fangs for her vampire costume, and go with ones that just fit on her eye-teeth, as opposed to the mouth guard type ones, and it didn’t work, so she improvised using some sugary blood syrup that she got at the SCA event on Saturday.
Charlie’s costume, a Rubik’s Cube, however worked out very well, and he got a lot of compliments, though he did experience, as I had warned him, issues with comfort and mobility.
Still, they had fun, and took in a decent haul of hysteria inducing sugar, so they both considered their outing a success.
We had to return home at one point, because they needed gloves.
Neither of their costumes were amenable to the use of pockets to warm one’s hands.
I remember trick or treating when I was a kid, with my Dad watching, and now I am watching as my kids trick or treat.
It’s the whole “circle of life” thing, I guess.
