We're off to see the Wizard!

The whole crew - the Tin Man, Dorothy, Glinda the good witch, Elphaba, Glinda (as seen in Wicked), the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, and the Wizard

Saturday night, Jake and I attended a fun young adults Halloween party with some cool church kids. We somewhere along the way developed a "Wizard of Oz/Wicked" theme and it spread like wildfire. I jumped on board as Elphaba and Saturday Jake decided he'd be the Wizard. I made my costume from things I had and a small Target run:

jumper: a black sundress from a few seasons ago, repurposed as a school girl jumper
shirt: a green sleep shirt, the perfect hue for a green witch.
hat: taken from my parent's costume drawer
shoes: my favorite American Eagle mary-janes that I wear to work
knee socks: Target special

Jake's costume came together all on Saturday, after a meeting of the minds at Brodeo (the guys weekly breakfast at Bryants):

Jacket: from his dad's closet
Pants: from a thrift store on Summer
Tie: Goodwill on Highland
Hat/Cane: from my dad

and, just for fun, a picture of one of many hilarious parts of the night... this is when Brie (dressed as a doctor) pretending to give Jake mouth to mouth as part of the act of being a doctor.
