I know that it's real Halloween today, but a lot of Halloween action went down over Saturday night.

My friend Leslie's birthday is on Halloween, so she usually throws a really nice Halloween party.

This year, she and her boyfriend were both adorable David Bowies.

I decided to go as one of the pageant girls from Toddlers and Tiaras. I think it was almost more fun trying to figure out how to make the costume.

My friend Jennifer came as Mr. Rogers and took the whole get up a lot better than the real Mr. Rogers might have.

My friend Jeremiah had one of the more conversation worthy costumes of the night. I spent some time wishing the ostrich part of the costume wasn't made up a color so close to one on the flesh color spectrum.

My friend Amelia was a stellar 40's sailor, but unfortunately I didn't get a photo. I did get a photo of my friends Nathan and Patrick though, and they had great classic Halloween costumes.

It was a great Halloween. There were some really nice costumes, and if I'm extra lucky I'll get a trick or treater or two tonight.

The Halloween parties were fun. The next day we hit up a few vintage shops on Hawthorne, and I snapped some pictures of things that I thought might make nice applique someday.

Both items were a little out of my price range, but the photos will work just as well for my purposes.

And in Fritz news, I had some money left over in my bank account this month, so I took him in to get a rabies vaccine, which you need in Multnomah county to get your cat licensed.

I took my camera, because he, in the past, had a tendency of trying to jump places in the exam room and missing entirely, but he was on his game so all I got were a bunch of boring videos of him walking around.

He did like to explore the space though.

The vet assured me that he's not the first cat to get back there. I didn't tell her that I'd been taking pictures though, because while I am a weirdo that takes a lot of cat pictures, I didn't really want the vet to know it!

Your costume is rad, the ostrich however - a bit disturbing. I'm a total Halloween cop out. I really think Fritz should come meet Maggie sometime.

your costume looks amazing!! my concern is you might get points taken off because 1. you aren't using a flipper and 2. you aren't wearing white shoes with white folded over socks.
I'm so sad I didn't get to see it in person. Everyone looked awesome!
