Bash of the Day #2596

I first met Laurel three years ago, at one of the bolder Hellaween parties over at the haus. Since then we’ve become much more inclined toward mellow events, and had just three friends over tonight for our tiny Halloween party.

Over the course of any Halloween, people will shed the less comfortable parts of their costume, slowly turning back into themselves. Laurel, who made herself into Marceline the Vampire Queen, abandoned the fang, black hair and sun hat when we migrated to the sofa; Alina was a classical sort of witch, but doffed the black hat when she came in. Ruth experimented with Pippy Longstocking pigtails, but the wire wouldn’t quite stay put. In this shot only Bob is still entirely Someone Else – a shepherd from a time long before sheep.

With a great deal of Laurel’s help I became Wirt, and in order to explain the costume we watched Over the Garden Wall with everyone. The music is still in my head – it’s a good way to end the night.

the loveliest lies of all
