07:09 pm: Yo ho ho and a Happy Halloween!
I haven't dressed up for Halloween to teach before, but I figured this would be a fun year to do it. During my weekend shopping, I picked up a couple items here and there to throw together into a costume. This morning I spent about an hour weaving my hair into rather ratty braids and set off for work as a pirate. (For those who have seen me cosplay--that's basically my Hiei costume with new boots and a frilly shirt.)

My students loved it, and I even got to teach them the phrase "walk the plank" in one class.

The best part was hearing the surprised reactions of people when I would walk past. "What the--? Oh...Halloween..."

Changing shoes for every class was a bit of a pain with the boots, though. ~_~

Thank you. I thought about picking up some toy weapons, but I didn't know the school policy about that sort of thing.

Wouldn't that be fun?

I'd get tired of spending that much time on my hair every day, though. I don't know how the real pirates do it... ^_~

Awesome! You make a great pirate.

that's basically my Hiei costume

This confused the heck out of me when I saw the picture because I read that as "Heidi." ._.

Thanks! ...Too bad I didn't have the costume pieces when we went on the Osaka cruise. ;_;

because I read that as "Heidi."

That's certainly a different mental image...

Too cool, too cool!

I'm so glad the students appreciated it, too. It was so nice that the teachers got into the mood and helped set the atmosphere.

Happy Halloween, a bit belated for you.

I was surprised that I didn't get as many trick-or-treaters at my desk as last year. I had a much greater variety of treats and everything.

Oh, well. More for me, I suppose.
