|Tuppence took a photo of me in costume.|
The unfortunate part of all this was that I actually came up with a costume concept, pieced it together, and donned my outfit before we got the news that the party was cancelled. So, Tuppence (she dressed as Death) and I just hung out that evening...in costume, just the two of us. Yeah, we're cool.
|The Original Joyce. |
His costume is a little better than mine.
I headed out to the Halloween costume shops. After picking up an eyepatch, a set of Harry Potter glasses, and a clip-on bow-tie, I had my outfit set. I took a couple of days growing a beard and then trimmed it down to be closer to the photograph I used as a guide. On the whole, I think I did a pretty good job.
Maybe this could be the start of a tradition of dressing up as authors or literary characters. Who knows?
