The neighborhood center where I volunteer had our big Halloween block party/costume giveaway yesterday afternoon — a dang fine time. A few snaps of some of my youngsters:
Miss Takaiya as Cinderella, a vision in pink
Russell, wearing both a Rasta-with-faux-dreads hat and a Dr. Evil suit. I'm not really sure how those ideologies blend, but he made it work.
"DJ Paul" rocking the block
Rashad, who decided he wasn't going to mess with costumes anymore (other than his spooky skull and bones necklace). I sympathize; I've also decided that I'm too old for costumes. (The strictures of The Uniform don't permit such vagaries.) Well, actually I did wear a goofy orange hat and a fake mustache, but shhh, don't tell anyone.
