Happy Hween 2012!

Hello, everyone! Today is my favorite holiday of them all, Halloween!

This was my first Halloween in which I actually owned my own sewing machine, so I went for a much more ambitious sewing project than usual. After looking around the internets for a few minutes trying to find a good template or instructional video, I figured out how to sew the head of my costume. Here is my costume for Hween 2012!

It's a-me! A Mushroom!

Super Mario Mushroom coming out of a Question Block

Just by happenstance the cardboard box I chose to be the Question Block ended up being 16″ × 16″ and the original Super Mario sprite for the Question Block just happens to be 16 pixels × 16 pixels. So I just made a one-inch grid on the backs of a big piece of orange and a big piece of black paper, and cut out all the shapes for the question mark and shadows. Easy-peasy!

Continuing with the same Super Mario theme, here are my punkins for Hween 2012:

It's a Shy Boo Punkin!

The Big Boo punkin is so shy when you’re looking at him!

But when you look away, Big Boo punkin is gonna getchoo!

I was not, of course, the only person to have a costume. On Saturday night Fools Play had its annual Halloween Show, and the whole cast was all costumed-up:

Lookit all dem Fools!

And, finally, here is Baman Piderman’s Halloween episode, “Ghost Night!” Enjoy!

Happy Hween E’rybody!
