Vinny wanted to be Steve from Minecraft, his favorite computer game. Honestly I have no idea what the game is about, but the characters are all pixelated block people. Of course the stores were all out of the box head so I decided I could make it myself. I found the right size box at Kinko's and found a link to the printable online. I printed it up (seen below) and pasted it around the box. I thought it came it came out pretty damn good. I bought him the foam pick axe at the store and voila` done!
Except he lost the pick axe before Halloween. And Halloween morning he decided he didn't like the way the head moved around when he wore it. And can he be a zombie instead?? Seriously??

Joey went as one of the Anonymous hackers (how brilliant was that? And easy! $10 mask and jacket and pants from goodwill). Zachary was Freddy Kruger from Nightmare on Elm Street.
I kept think about Vinny though. On the one hand, I wanted to ring his neck. On the other, I felt bad for him. I wanted him to be happy with his costume. So at lunch I ran to Party City and bought some make-up, and spent some time watching youtube videos on how to apply zombie make up.

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!
