remember when it was halloween?

Before it gets ridiculously late, here is my Halloween costume from 2010.


Inspired by Wallace & Gromit's "Feathers McGraw", a sinister penguin who disguises himself as a chicken.




I made the rooster cap and the feet out of old sweaters. The beak is felt, I've got a nylon on my head, and I'm wearing Abe's bathrobe. I love Halloween!

Perhaps even more cool than my costume, though, is the blog I stumbled upon while finding the Feathers McGraw poster. The photo I posted comes from blogger Jessica B., http://jbbentos.blogspot.com/2009/08/wallace-and-gromit-bento.html, who makes bento boxes based on various themes and book characters. A bento box is a traditionally Japanese lunch tray of assorted foods (Check out the wikipedia article). Jessica's work is amazing. The link I posted features a sandwich in the shape of Wallace & Grommit. She has also done Hunger Games, Twilight, Where the Wild Things Are, and more.
