I made a bustle for my costume using a tutorial I found online. 25 feet of plastic coated wire, and a couple hours of grunting (that wire is HARD to bend!) later:

It is very difficult to sit in a car with a bustle. One may or may not be able to buckle one's seatbelt.

We went to the DreamWorks trick-or-treat party on Friday at lunchtime, and then the Trunk-or-Treat at the church last night. We were wildly popular, and only partly because of our fabulous costumes. (oh yes, I DO say so myself)

Craig found a bubble machine that fills the bubbles with fog so whenever the bubbles pop you get this little puff ... we had a mob of kids and parents around our car the whole night, popping the bubbles and asking "where did you get that" "how does it do that?".

Oh yes, it's good to be king.

Oh sure, if you're into the whole "praise of men" thing! :P

Oh, and remind us never to park next to you for a trunk-or-treat again.

AWESOME. I was Hello Kitty and all of the girls at the party I went to were all in love with my costume. It is a good feeling.

So I have no idea who these people are that you dressed up as, but the costumes still look cool.

The bustle looks interesting...you should post a picture with you actually wearing it (rear view).

Glad you had fun and are liking your new ward.

"and only partly because of our fabulous costumes"...

I agree, your "awesomeness" transcends your coture.

"Craig found a bubble machine that fills your bubbles with fog..."

I've said it before and I will say it again:
"It must be wonderful to be your kid"

"Oh yes, it's good to be king"

I.LOVE.YOU.
