While Halloween isn’t exactly around the corner, I recently came across this photo and it seemed appropriate to post. It was this time last year that Matt was talking about ordering one of the Force FX lightsabers. My only request was that if he was going to get one, that it only made sense for me to also own one. I mean how silly would it have looked if he was running around all on his own with a lightsaber and no one to mock battle with?
It was that purchase that put us on the road to our Halloween costumes for 2010. I’m fairly certain we’ll use them again. Not sure if I’ll wear mine again this year or save it for another year. But either way, our lightsabers are on display year round in our games room.
What’s you favourite costume? Was it something that was for Halloween or another occasion? Maybe there’s something you wore as a child that you’ll never forget? Here in Newfoundland, I remember having to wear my winter jacket over my Halloween costume more than once due to a sudden cold snap or unexpected snow. Ha ha.
Note: this post is also in honour of my niece who was Darth Vader for Halloween last year. I couldn’t have been prouder to hear how much she loves Star Wars. Now I just need to get both of my nieces into other sci fi goodies like Star Trek and Stargate.
