Give me 'angry'!

Well, I didn't want to do it, but Rachel talked me into actually being something for Halloween. I just didn't have a very good attitude, but I didn't want to be a bummer. Rachel came up with the idea of my being a gangster/mobster (think New York, 1920s...), and I had the idea of adding a sexy flair to it. If I was going to be anything, I was going to look hot. So I borrowed a plain black tie from a guy in my ward and the black fedora from Rachel, and I broke out my pants suit that I purchased for who knows what reason (I probably knew this costume was on the horizon...).

Rachel was a flapper, so we kind of came from the same era. She's been planning her costume for over a month, and I think it turned out aces! I teased her that she planned my costume so she'd have a pseudo date...(because let's face it, I looked kind of like a man--but with more lipstick). Here are the results:

The funniest thing was that a guy in our ward dressed up as fundamentally the same thing...but he had a fake gun I could borrow, so we formed a posse...or, er, um, a gang? Let's just say we were both members of the mafia, how about? It was fun to keep the gun hidden and then break it out every now and then and 'pop' people. I also talked a lot about cement shoes and having someone's back. Come to think of it, I should have adopted a Brooklyn accent or something...

Also, a little something to note...this blog has officially been up and going for over a year now. A crazy year, at that. Go me.

Yay! Fancy fun costume and great job buying the sexy pantsuit in advance! It's awesome! You guys both look fantastic! Can Syd join your group too? She was a flapper last year, although a tiny one!
