Kevin's Costume Reveal

Posted by

Drumroll, please! For Halloween 2k11, I'm dressing as a priest! I so appreciate all your input on the preliminary survey. I just fell in love with this red-edged vestment and had to go for it. Your call for a matador costume did not go unheard; I'll keep that tucked away for the next costume party. Enjoy these pictures of me getting ready in my office, and have a terribly frightful, magically autumnal, wonderful Halloween!

The box arrived. I cannot wait to open it!

The capelet is a necessary flourish, but I think it makes me look very serious!

With a little hemming help from my intern, my belt fit perfectly. It's definitely my favorite part of the ensemble!

A selection of necklaces from Kenneth Jay Lane to choose from. I think I'm going to double up because they're all so great.

What did everyone dress as for Halloween? This costume was a cinch to pull together once I actually opened the box. Did you do more shopping or crafting to get ready this year? Happy Halloween!
