Happy Halloween, readers!

Zebra Costumeszany zebras

Unfortunately one of my favorite holidays back home is not celebrated very widely across the world. We did have a pretty badass animal themed “fancy dress party” (as my UK friends call it) earlier this year in Koh Tao, which is where these photos are from. See that amazing zebra body paint job on Mark? You can just thank my four solid years of fine arts education for that one.

Bird Halloween Costume

Not bad for a remote tropical island, no?

Hope everyone is having a spooky day and eating lots of candy corn, especially my best friend Kristin, who is lucky enough to have her birthday on the most fun day of the year, but unlucky enough to have a best friend in Cambodia for it.

Happy Birthday Halloween Cake

I made this for her last year. But now I’m just bragging.

Booo!

    Agree with Dad–but what a paint job on Mark–only you could do that!! Still hard to beat the Superman/Lois Lane pics. Know you’re always having a blast.

    Hey, Dad: Surely you must be THRILLED to see that all those years of expensive college education have finally paid off!!!!

      I told Mark he owed me $120K for that paint job.

    Note to Steve McKee: Yes, I am happy her six figure education manifested itself in body art on a young scotsman….seriously, I am happy she off the dole…I mean she is working her around the world on her own dimes, after all, and not living at home or camped out in Zucotti Park (I am with the 99% but glad my kids are all doing something and pursuing goals despite the economic inequities of the early 21st century)

      What is Zucotti Park?

    After months of ship food, I would like that cake in my mouth NOW.

    You guys are darling–and I know what you mean about Halloween not being so big in the rest of the world, hence my own difficulty at finding a costume!

      I just read your Halloween post 🙂 I do have actual Halloween photos now, but to be honest they aren’t as good as our zebra get-ups! Luckily I found a boyfriend who loves “fancy dress” as much as me!

    Your costumes are awesome!! Why didn’t you don yourself with some stripes? Was Mark hogging all the paint…!

      It’s more difficult than you would think to paint one’s own body.
