Wish I Were There...

I really wanted to go to the pawty this weekend, but my mom didn't get me a Halloween costume. I tried to come up with one of my own, but I had nothing to work with. I even went through the laundry basket but what can you do with human underpants and socks other than eat them?

I would have been happy showing up as a can of pumpkin moosh, like Tanner.

Or even an actual pumpkin, like Sherman.

But it seems that Joe Stain's magic wand is working overtime and probably won't be able to make it here in time to transform me before for the pawty. He's super busy casting spells and stuff.

So, this is the best costume I could come up with on such short notice...sans props.

Is it scary enough for you? I was going for a post-modernist take on Munch's "Scream." I realize that without makeup and wardrobe it has a tendency to get lost in translation, but it was the best I could do under the circumstances.

Ugh. I guess I'll just hang out here and wait for fall-out from the trick-or-treaters. Have fun at the pawty without me!

The only problem is the white couch. You must tell your people to go out and buy a swirling couch so that your scream has the proper context.

But I totally understand your costume dilemna. It's a trying time of year for a nudist like me. I only wear imaginary costumes. I find the whole keeping with the theme thing much easier that way. It's especially convenient if you have to hit more than one party.

Myself, I don't need a costume.
I am regal in my fur and everyone knows it.
What more can I say?

Your scream is great - and I also didn't get to go to the pawty cos HM totally forgot about the date - she is such a goof sometimes.
