We were warned! The Halloween Party signals the end of hurricane season and the last bash before the cruisers all go their separate ways. Since we were tipped off, we started our Halloween costume search in Alaska where we struck out, continued it in India where we picked up outfits that would work, and finished our shopping in Maryland. Not wanting to buy cheesy costumes-in-a-bag and utterly lacking in creativity, we decided to go with our Indian outfits and goof them up a bit with some glow bracelets, flashing braids, and a fez.
Dave started growing a beard and mustache in Maryland because we couldn’t find any decent mustaches for sale. He felt the beard was necessary instead of just a mustache in order to avoid being mistaken for a child molester.
As it turns out, that was a good choice. He did look rather creepy with the mustache only.
