the bean went back and forth between several costume ideas, and at the last minute she settled on this:
despite the fact that i'm not a huge fan of halloween, i ended up throwing together an outfit to wear for trick-or-treating with the bean. i'd come across this online, and managed to cobble together the pieces from stuff i had at home:
i like this little ensemble so much, i may wear it for next year's hollywood half. it'd be pretty easy to adapt for running.
check out my "treat."
after perusing the city-sponsored parties at the park, we decided to stick closer to home and just do some regular old halloween begging at our neighbors'.
since our street doesn't get a whole lot of trick-or-treaters, i knew we'd be safe leaving this at our door.
after doing a loop around the neighborhood, the bean's bag was heavy and full of the good stuff.
