Here Comes Halloween

Halloween is nearly here. Some elementary school-aged children around the country are giving their costumes a test drive at costume parades at school until the big day. We went to one such event this morning.  In many ways, these parades are looking more and more like Cosplay events: many kids wear fantasy characters from their latest video game infatuation. I’m partial to home-made costumes, or semi-home made outfits pulled together cleverly.

Happy Halloween.
