Halloween Lite

Because Halloween is on a work night and because of my work hours, we couldn't do anything that ambitious this year. In fact, it was close to a carbon copy of last year. We did have to run an errand to Lowe's, and while Lisa and I didn't get into costume, Kuma Bear wore his Danger Mouse costume. Nobody recognized him, though.

After running our errand, we decided to go out to dinner in costume.

Kuma's Jack-o-Lantern appears to have tried to eat a golf ball, and it does not appear to have agreed with him at all.

We got into our Chicon 7 jumpsuits and went down to the Black Bear Diner for dinner.

Halloween 2017

I couldn't find anyone to take our picture this year, so here's what we looked like last year, when we did exactly the same thing at the same place. We looked similar this year, with differences only in detail.

After dinner, we went into the adjacent Nugget casino. I thought I had a coupon good for $10 free play, but it turned out to be not valid on Wednesday or Saturday. Lisa played a little bit anyway, and managed to win a little bit as well. We spent the winnings at Family Dollar on the way home to buy her a bag of Snickers bars.

I'm glad we managed to get out in costume. We had these outfits with us at Worldcon 76, but never found the time to wear them.
