My Halloween posts always seem to happen in December...Anyways, for Halloween this year I decided to dress up as the Robot Unicorn from the incredibly addicting internet game Robot Unicorn Attack. I get a little competitive when it comes to my costume contest at work, so I went all out.
And then I gradually covered it in white fun foam.
There were Dementors and spiderwebs hanging from the ceiling.
A giant spider stood guard over the door.
We decided to make a Harry. Our supplies included a Gryfindor cloak and scarf, a tripod and some towels/shirts to stuff him with.
Harry ended up having a very large potbelly. He had really let himself go...
We printed out a picture of his face to complete the majestic Harry dummy.
We tied his arm up with dental floss (which is REALLY strong) and stuck a stick in the sleeve as a wand. We also stuck a mini strobe light in his sleeve so that it would look like he was casting a spell. There was a cd with an audio clip of him saying 'Expecto Patronum' that we played in the background on a loop so that it looked like he was expelling the dementors. It mostly just looked ridiculous though.
For my own front yard I made a thoughtful looking skeleton to hang out in one of the bushes.
Ghosty was also hanging out in the front yard, and greeted people with his lovely ghost singing.
