Hallow's Eve: It's Festive

I really like Halloween. There are a lot of good elements--fall, candies, costumes, pumpkins, spooky things. Also, Nightmare Before Christmas. But the costumes are surely my favorite part. I think I have dressed up pretty much every Halloween except for one year about 6-7 years ago when it was on a Sunday and there was no where to go and nothing to do. Anywhey, for the last long while I have been Hermione every year*, and you can probably guess that D-Rew has been Harry Potter for lo, these many years. So this year, after considering Jim and Pam for a while, we decided to join our magical forces for the first time. We were extremely accurate besides blatantly ignoring canon pairings, but Ginny was not an option. No.

We went to the local Trunk or Treat and we had both the best trunk and the best costumes. And then we ate pasta and Sticky Fingers at Wingers. Then we went home and watched Edward Scissorhands. Huzzah! (If you want a more detailed look at our Halloween festivities you can check out the Mister's blog. When he posts about it. Which he will because I'm watching him type it right now. I'm going to beat him to the punch though, haha.)

Anyway, on a final note, I realized that day that instead of our old English standbys, it would have been seriously awesome if we had been these guys instead:

Penny and Captain Hammer! It would have been awesome and hilarious and moderately obscure. If you don't know what I'm talking about, kindly investigate the world of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Now we have a whole year to get ready, and look out world, next Halloween we're going to be Penny and Captain Tightpants Hammer and it will be awesome.

*Three Halloweens ago I had just chopped off my hair so I consoled myself by being a pirate. And two Halloweens ago I was also Pam. That's about all my branching out since, oh, 2002.


  1. You know, Penny and Captain Hammer is pretty much the coolest idea for couples' costumes I've ever heard of, and you guys could totally pull it off. Drew totally even has the hair for it! You maybe could even find a friend to be Dr. Horrible himself, and a "Bad Horse" costume would be pretty freakin' cool as well. Wow, now I want to be Dr. Horrible for Halloween.... there would even be slightly more people who would get the reference than there would who would recognize The Monarch, Baron √únderbheit, Brock Sampson or Sergeant Hatred, all costumes I've wished I could pull off. You make an awesome Hermione, by the way... but why the hatred of Ginny? Am I the only Ginny fan out there?!?

  2. That WOULD have been funny to be Penny and Captain Hammer, but you really would need a third. I was thinking of making Jefferson Dr. Horrible, but he chose a wizard. Maybe next time he can go to your trunk or treat as the Dr.

  3. Oh man, my friend colin introduced me to dr horrible like a month random!

  4. I would have totally hung out at your trunk.
