So I've constructed a harpoon which will be covered in fake blood and secured with a bungee cord and I have also dyed my hair permanently ginger. I've got a tan jacket with a punctured hole, a blue undershirt and black pants.

Pictures soon.

I put on my Yuno wig for school today, but I did not put on the entire costume, mainly because I just wanted to dress in comfortable, loose clothing because of yesterday. Some of the teachers asked who I was, so I explained who I was and what Yuno did--they looked like they were sorry they ever asked. :lol:
Also, I heard this outrageous (and by outrageous, I mean downright stupid ) story from one of the teachers today: At the school they used to work at, students used to dress up for Halloween until one of the mothers complained it was "devil worshipping" and so they stopped. (What's the wallbanger smily, cacums?)
Honest to God, some people are so stupid they shouldn't even be alive because they wouldn't know how to breathe. People who think you'll go to h*ll for celebrating Halloween/reading Harry Potter (that's what this reminds me of) are one of them. :roll:

So I went to school as Richard Allen. I went as him post-death before lunch and then during lunch, applied the FX.

The harpoon was harder to build than previously thought.
My computer teacher was kind to take some shots of the "accident".

We got extra credit in one of my classes if we showed up in costume. Once there, we would vote on who had the best costume. Winner would get more extra credit points. We couldn't vote for ourselves, but I did get one vote.

The winner was Bob Dylan, which I'm torn about. On the one hand, the kid came and stayed in character. On the other, I feel like no effort went into his actual costume. He wore Ray bans, had a cigarette, wore a sweater and a button down. That's it. While I appreciate that more than just going out and buying a costume (which, I should add, no one with a store bought costume got any votes), it still feels like a lack of effort was put in. The kid just has the same hair as Bob Dylan, that shouldn't mean he wins. The girl who made a Poison Ivy costume probably should have. Or the girl who showed up as a guy cop.

Oh what? The cellphone? Yeah, I don't own one. I guess I could have borrowed somebody else's phone for the pictures.

Awesome costume, Cluedokid. I walked around and shot arrows at everyone all day.

So I sent the pictures to Sean Rogerson (Booth) on Facebook and he replied saying he'll pass them on to David Lewis (Richard) so he can see them.

That's very exciting, good luck!

You spared no expence with the costume, CluedoKid. I love it.

By the way, to all fellow Britons, the original Halloween and Halloween 2 will be on BBC2 tonight at 11:20. I'll just be watching those in my room...with all the lights off or something.

I hope you don't do that by yourself... I did that with Halloween (I refuse to watch the sequels; the original by itself is a brilliant masterpiece) and it scared the **** out of me. So much, in fact, I can't bring myself to watch it again.

I don't know if this goes for everyone, but we get the BBC channels here in the US too...

I think it's just the UK. You may want to check your tv guide to be sure, though.

The day is finally here! :D I'm going to be carving out the pumpkins with my dad in a short while, and then we're putting up the decorations.

I'm going up to my local club for a small party. Guess what I'm going up as.

I'm watching movies all day and hanging around with my best friends to see who gets scared easiest.

I actually like the second one quite a bit. Sometimes I consider it more fun than the original. The original is my favorite horror movie of all time, but the second is still good. I'd give it a try.

No, I'm sure. I record it from the internet all the time (My TV has an audio/visual hookup to my laptop). All regular BBC channels are available via online streaming.

As for TV in general, though, we get BBC news on PBS around 9 or 10 pm.

Just got back. I decided to only do a few houses this year to avoid getting stuck with a ton of candy I never eat, like all the other years.

I spent the day at my best friend's house, watching horror movies. His father just happens to be a teacher at my school. It's not too much fun when a teacher walks in during all the sex scenes.

"Oh....Hi, Mr. D."

Anyway, we watched Friday the 13th, and I noticed the 1970s Clue in one of the scenes.
