Harry Halloween!


This year, my nephew Orpheus paid me a huge compliment by deciding against getting a new costume for Halloween. He went as Harry Potter again, in the robes I made him last year. It's a good thing I made them long last year, because he really shot up!

His brother Linus decided to go as a superhero, instead. For some reason he wouldn't smile for the camera. This is the most - just a hint of a smile - that I was able to catch. Although, he did lots of smiling at other times.

And again, here is Orpheus as Harry with his mom, Calliope, who also went as a witch. I was invited to come trick-or-treating, as long as I was willing to go in costume. Orpheus was horrified that I was planning to go as as the Harry Potter villain, Bellatrix Lestrange. So, we compromised and I went as his friend, Hermione Granger, instead. And if my mom sends me pictures, I will post one of my very excellent costume.

Happy Halloween!

Update on December 6: Here are a few more photos....

Calliope, me (note the cauldron with the copy of Beedle
the Bard's tales in it),and Orpheus as Harry
in front

I don't think Harry and Hermione ever dueled in the Harry Potter series,
but we dueled over the time turner I'm wearing around my neck.

Nope. Mom told me that Mayor Mike has supported teachers and that won her over. Not sure what dad's opinion is.
