This time the Show & Tell project is your costume! Build, sew, assemble, hot-glue, knit, or weld something awesome, and wear it with pride. If you don't have a costume come anyway, and build one here! Pose in your costume in front of our spooky backdrop, and enter your photo in the Halloween contest! Awesome prizes await.

Things to do:
Eat Jesse's birthday cake
Make costumes
Bob for apples
Carve pumpkins
Whack Halloween pinatas
Pose for a ghoulish costume photo shoot
Dance to spooky music
Try ghost writing (laser etching- bring your phone!)
Watch classic monster movies

Details:
The party starts at 6:30pm on Saturday, October 27th.
Bring yourself, your costume, your friends and family, and something to eat or drink.

The Halloween Costume Ball will feature costume making, bobbing for apples, dancing, ghostly writing (laser engraving), monster movies, a ghoulish photo shoot, and Halloween Pinatas with enough candy to rot your fangs out!

There will be a dancing on the roof deck, weather permitting, and a movie room showing non-stop monster classics!

Come early for pumpkin carving. We'll have tools and a few pumpkins on hand, but you can bring your own!

Have something to demo or display? Let me know, and we'll get you table space.

This event is kid-friendly- we'd love to see their costumes too, and will run the interactive events before bedtime.

RSVPs requested, though not absolutely required- we need a decent crowd estimate to ensure enough tricks and treats for everyone! Drop me a PM or email at canida at instructables dot com.

We'll see you there!

MOM! I'm going out. If I'm not back in 2 weeks I'm either dead, or I decided to fulfill manifest destiny and permanently moved out to the land of the setting sun.

Sure they do!

Of course, it's still a long drive to Boston. Maybe you should consider living somewhere more convenient?

Mum, you know how you're always complaining about trick-or-treaters bothering us?

Yes...

Well I have a great alternative!

Oh right, what's this then?

Well if we weren't in the house they wouldn't bother us!

Great Idea, anywhere in mind?

Well now you mention it, there was this one place we could go...

No.

Howd'ya tell?

I read your homepage.

Awww, I really wish I could afford a plane ticket out there, hahaha. But no, I will be working, probably beating off annoying children with a stick. :P I don't even know what I'm doing for Halloween. I do know that I need to photoshop my cats in costumes, though...
