Hi, my daughter linked me here, love all the ideas for costumes. Our enlarged family has been doing Halloween for many, many years, and all the costumes have been handmade! My husband and I went as Sonny & Cher, he was Cher & I was Sonny, everyone loved it. Also, Hunchback & Gypsy girl, salt & pepper shakers, referee & football player, so many I can’t remember them all. Now once a month my sisters, our older girls, & our mom meet for a card night but we theme dress up: Harry Potter Night, Jersey Shore, Roman Toga, Nerd, and so on, we have so much fun doing it, take pictures, then we relax for the night. My neice made my mom a scrapbook of all our nights we’ve done, it’s great! Enjoy all.
Following the riot, police arrested eight anarchist leaders on charges of conspiracy. Seven of the eight were convicted of murder and sentenced to death, despite the fact that six of the defendants weren’t even in Haymarket Square at the time the bomb was thrown. At the Second International Socialist Conference in 1889, members voted to celebrate May 1 as International Workers’ Day, often referred to as May Day, to commemorate the Haymarket affair. President Cleveland wanted to avoid the socialist and anarchist connotations of May Day, so when he established a holiday to celebrate America's workers, he chose the first Monday in September, calling back to previous traditions from New York's labor movement.

Evan Booth's costume for Halloween 2006 seemed to be a nondescript "dude in a wig" until you looked at the GAPING HOLE in his midsection! This was accomplished with a camera in the back of the shirt that recorded a background scene and fed it to a travel-size DVD player in the front that displayed the backdrop. In 2008, artist Nicole Magne used the idea for a costume recreating a scene from the movie Death Becomes Her where Goldie Hawn has a hole blown through her body. The creation process is detailed on her blog, and the Instructables version is available if you'd like to try this yourself.

I made my ear “fins” from floral wire and tulle, and meticulously hand sewed sequins. I wore a nude tank top and pinned my hand sewn shells on. Then I sewed a fin, using a skirt as a pattern, and added tulle fins (again, meticulously hand sequined.) I was covered in glitter and blue and green makeup, and found that delightfully tacky wig at Goodwill. Don’t worry – it was new and unused!
