So for day one of Halloween weekend, I chose Tom Cruise’s character of Joel Goodson from the movie Risky Business. You can’t see in the picture, but I carried an iPod with speakers playing the Bob Seger song (of course, sliding into rooms like he did proved difficult!). The costume idea itself was derived from ease of making it as well as not wanting to spend money for new clothes, and thus a legend was born. Unexpected shortcoming of costume: no pockets!
A different costume unveils itself tonight, check back… (Hint: it’s an American literary figure)
