that first photo is highly cinematic, no? and somewhat haunting. hope i haven't scared you.
oh right, WHY? last weekend my friend angel celebrated her birthday with a classic-story themed murder mystery party. i rarely pass up an excuse to dress up and when i saw the character choices, i knew exactly what i had to do. the lovely ginnine let me borrow the cape she made with her own two hands for her red riding hood halloween costume back in 2007. she does beautiful work. jesse was the other hood, robin hood, that is. and he crafted his own bow and arrow from some downed branches and twine (and an arrowhead out of cardboard and duct tape). before dinner, we got in some target practice.
and the table was set. fabulous dinner made by angel's sister, charity, and brother-in-law, tyler. Charity's storybook cake was amazing.
general merriment ensued. there were all sorts of characters . . angel was snow white, there was sherlock holmes, rapunzel, count dracula, john silver, the mad hatter, the wicked witch, (and more!) and even a little one-year-lold scheherazade! angel's dog even joined in on the role-playing as one of the seven dwarves - sleepy, of course.
i love it when everybody is a good sport and dresses up. well done, everyone. well done.
now gearing up for this weekend. heading to gainesville for the HOT GRAVES 7" release show. and brother + nephew time. verymuchlookingforwardtoit.
