I used to have a ton of details about the work and inspiration behind these costumes, but really, it’s all about pictures. So here are a bunch from previous years.
Meet the family.
That was a weird year. remember?
Some failed- glow-in-the-dark experiment…
2018 (Montreal Comic Con)
Father and son. Technically not a Halloween costume but I couldn’t not show this.
White Walker, sorta.
So not showing you that one…
Captain Harlock (Albator en français). Me and my son had a whole space pirate theme going on…
A bird! I had blacklight LEDs in the rim of the hat and glow-in-the-dark contacts. Pretty sure I ruined my eyesight for good that night but you could see it a mile away.
Dear god. Three months of mixing and gluing hair on a bodysuit. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
Grendizer (Goldorak en français) Most fun I’ve had building something from scratch. (also, dancing with Marge Simpson)
Recycled Vader. I wasn’t into pictures that year…
My wife was eight months pregnant.
Matching couples costume! A bit gore… I could remove my eye and give it to people…
Some kind of Voldemort-like thing, though I didn’t know who that was. I really wanted to try the white eye.
Original Vader. I spent a whole year on that one.
Less elaborate werewolf. That night, I thought it’d be cool to do a more advanced transformation some day. Bad idea (see 2013).
Pink Predator! Also, I lost my camera that night.
