a two birds halloween

jim, chris, megan and i do the same thing every year for halloween. we dress up in a group costume (see past year's costumes here and here), and go to a local bar for drinks, karaoke, and a costume contest. and, not to toot our own horns or anything, but we pretty much win first prize every year. we start planning our costumes months in advance. megan came up with this year's idea and i think it was our best year yet! here are a few photos...we hope you enjoy!

the many faces of johnny depp

captain jack sparrow

the mad hatter

willy wonka (and chris had the pose down perfectly!)

edward scissorhands



we won first place again this year! yay!!! now we have to start thinking about next year's costume!

did you or will you dress up? what are you going to be? whatever you do, we wish you a safe and happy halloween!

xoxo, two birds
