Happy Halloween!

"What defines a nerd? Committing to an awesome Halloween costume
with your best friend? Is that what nerds do?" - Abed,

It's that time of year again!

Distracted by moving and settling in, we really gave no thought to what our Halloween costumes would be this year...but I refused to go this Halloween without one. Knowing that the day would soon be upon us, I did some brainstorming and came up with these ideas:

Hit Girl / Kick-Ass
Community mascots

But with less than a week before Halloween, there was no time to make these costumes work (and we both aren't in the best of shapes for those body-hugging ones - damn, those Tron costumes would have been pretty awesome...)

Tuesday night (10/26) rolls around, and as I'm searching movies we've seen this year, I stumble upon Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

Seeing as how colorful the characters were in the movie, I thought, yes! we could pull this after lots of online searching and express shipping, we turn into

Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers

(it wasn't until after committing to the costume that I found out that there were a zillion Ramona Flowers at the NY Comic Con not too long ago...oh well)

Brian would have been spot on with his clothes if it weren't for my quick buying skills (or lack thereof) on Amazon, not realizing until it was too late that the green Smashing Pumpkins t-shirt automatically got shipped to our old address in West Hartford - DOH!!!! With his Death Cab for Cutie tee as a backup, Brian and I fruitlessly strolled around St. Marks on Friday (10/29) to hopefully find something close. I was saddened to see that one of the larger vintage stores I went to just a mere 9-10 years earlier was no longer there, replaced by "retail space available" and/or a new restaurant (hard to tell exactly where it used to be with all the new changes). I myself forewent with the green gloves (even though I saw them at St. Mark's) and opted for the blue ones I bought just minutes before.

to be continued...
