I have to admit that I did not want D' to get the gangster costume. I pushed for a Anakin Skywalker costume so that he could use his light-up light sabre as a prop, but he really liked the gangster suit (mainly because of the tommy-gun that was featured on the packaging). But he looked really sharp in the costume that he chose.
We originally were not going to take Ms. Lion beyond our immediate neighborhood, but she seemed to enjoy the walk and wasn't freaked out by the other trick-or-treaters. So we ended up doing the whole circuit with her. She seemed really confused about the whole process. She gladly walked up to people's homes, but then would get whiney when we wouldn't go in, but instead walk away. And then she would try to approach houses that didn't have their lights on and would get confused when I'd pull her away from those homes. Otherwise, she seemed to have a good time.
It was kind of funny seeing people react to me in my chef's costume. Lots of folks would laugh and say something to me in French. Then they would notice Ms. Lion in her lobster costume and quickly put two-and-two together and laugh anew.
Now we're back home. D's eating candy and watching an iCarly.com marathon and I'm getting ready to blow out the pumpkins. Have a good, safe night, folks!
