Halloween this year was a blast! To kick it off, I borrowed a Nomex suit from my father-in-law, added a red cape and some yellow fabric letters, sprinkled a dash of 'tude, baked at 350 for 20 minutes and then enjoyed my Hot Rod outfit.
Oh yeah, then I added my mustache. I couldn't find my fake mustache, so I ended up using an eyebrow from a "devil's facial hair" set that I had laying around. It's good to be a pack rat!
Since Hot Rod is a stunt man, I knew that I would probably do at least one death-defying stunt during the day. So I made sure to stretch early and often.
And of course, when you dress up in a cape, there's always the chance that you'll get mistaken for a superhero. Because of this, I worked on my Judo Chop to make sure that I could destroy any arch-nemesis at first sight.
My cape says ROD, by the way. You'd know this if you saw Hot Rod, which I know you didn't, because Betty and I were the only two people in Louisiana to see it. It's coming out on DVD soon - be sure to check it out! My costume will be so much funnier once you rent Hot Rod.
This is me and my buddy Randall at work. Randall dressed up as Rick James. We're both super freaks.
Now onto the good stuff!
For Halloween night, my wife dressed as an oven (with a bun in it) and I dressed as the baker.
The kids thought I was the chef from Ratatouille. If that's what makes the kids happy, that's fine with me.
Betty's a Lovin' Oven!
The oven actually worked. It had a timer and everything! The art teacher at her school made it - isn't it awesome?!
Our friends Matt and Nicole came over to scare kids with us. Matt was a cross between an Old School character and the Ladies' Man. Or something. I'm not sure what he was but he looked good with that 'fro. He even pulled candy out of his wig to give to the kids.
Nicole was something to do with a bridesmaid's dress and high heel shoes.
I scooped candy from a big bowl into the kids' bags. I think I dropped more candy than actually got bagged. Here's me practicing my world famous scoop on Matt. Bam!
The only bad thing about Halloween is that I now have to wait an entire year to dress up again and scare kids. Why can't Halloween be every day?
