Behind The Awkwardness: Birds Of A Feather

February 17th, 2013

“Father and son at museum hosted event at Halloween 1999.  I am an owl and he is a toucan bird.  I made both costumes. My current museum educator thought that this image and moment in time needed to be officially documented.”

    I miss the days when everyone made their own Halloween costumes – it was hilarious & usually pretty imaginative. Especially when your original idea didn’t pan out for skill or logistical reasons & you had to revise your character (well I WAS going to be Medusa, but now I’m Audrey 2, the plant monster from Little Shop of Horrors). Good times.

    Loved the fingernails…er…talons. I agree with the above comment about the “bear thing” as being the scariest! All I could think of was the words from “Rocky Horror Picture Show”: these folks are all “CReatures of the Night”

    Well I think he deserves an award, those are some amazing costume skills.. bonus points for the talons.

  5. Toucan bird? As opposed to a toucan what?

    Ha! I think you’ll find toucan play at that game!

    And yet somehow, the scariest thing is whatever the heck that bear-thing is standing in the back.
