I'm not one to do traditional costumes. I want something different for Halloween. I also rather enjoy coordinating Garrett and Aloysius (our mini dachshund). Every year the Boston Dachshund Meetup group hosts a Halloweiner event in the Boston Commons. Last year Garrett went as a flower and Aloysius as a bumble bee.
This is the last year I'll be able to choose his costume. A few months ago I had purchased pants with suspenders for Garrett and the idea came to me...he was going to be Mal Reynolds from the short lived (but brilliant) series Firefly with Aloysius as Wash.
Aloysius only let me get a quick picture of him at home before he wriggled out of his costume. But Garrett wore his costume all through his Halloween party at Gymboree.
Both my red heads are exhausted. They had fun.
