Halloween 2005
October 29, 2005 / October 31, 2005

This year I decided to make my own costume for the UCLA FEMBA (Fully-Employed MBA program) annual Halloween party. I had a pink wig and went online to find an anime character to match. I went with Mew Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew. Thanks to Michelle Yam who helped me with the patterns, gave me tips and support throughout the whole process, and had me make a practice run using muslin - thanks Michelle!! Jason found his costume the night before - he was Will Ferrell's cheerleader character from SNL.

For Halloween we like to outsource our trick-or-treating duties to Jason's sister, Jen. She and Grahame came over for dinner and to pass out candy. She's soooo much better at it then we are, the kids LOVE her.
