So Gapetto got to work. After reviewing costumes
at several discount places he announced that he
could make a better one himself. And he came up
with an idea for his own costume as well. So he
began the all important and lengthly procurement
phase of the project. First he ordered a helmut off
of eBay - when that arrived the Bunny thought that
it really needed to be battle-scarred and of course
Gapetto agreed. There were numerous (at least
once a day) trips to discount stores, hardware store
and Michael's (area craft store). Gapetto may be
the only straight man on a first name basis with
the Michael's staff.
As the day approached things got rather hectic.
What with the 8 million decorations we put up
outside and the finishing of costumes but he
made it just under the wire.
I give you my very own CLONE Trooper -
the Bunny Rabbit.
But the piece de resistance was Gapetto's RocketMan
costume. I mean the man donned gold lame' tights for
crissakes! THAT is a dedicated Halloween Freak!
The fan inside the rocket blows the flame-like things
and of course light shoots out the bottom and from
his rocket boosters.
(I just might develop a thing for gold lame' tights
This is Bryan and me.
I like to tease him about the bullet he
dodged in not having me raise him -
I mean look at me - I'm a WITCH!
And here is the whole fam-damily.
