It just occurred to me that I could probably share this project here and someone may appreciate it Smiley I created this pinata costume for my boyfriend last Halloween. Many hours of crepe paper gluing and cursing later, we won both costume contests we entered (I kind of tagged along, as the pinata whacker - a fun excuse to chase him with a whiffle ball bat!). Now, we have to come up with something to top it next year!!

(Note: that cord hanging by his neck is supposed to the the cord you tie the pinata up with Smiley)

I wish I had gotten some better photos of him, and I may have them stashed somewhere, but these were the fun ones!

Oh man, the place where I work is really big into Halloween (like, crazy into Halloween) and I have no idea what to go as this year......  THIS is GENIUS!!!  (Hmmmm.....)  Grin 


Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

Thanks guys! It was pretty noisy when he walked around - and it made me VERY nervous around the bonfire, but all in all it was a success Smiley
