I'm not a fan of having a Kids Halloween Party the day after my adultish party because (a) I can't drink too much, (b) I can't stay out too late, and (c) I don't want to appear too sluggish throughout the event. Fortunately the bar didn't have Guinness and only crappy draught beer so (a) wasn't a problem, I had a nasty wardrobe malfunction a little after 1:00 so (b) wasn't a problem, and the kids and other staff were so Genki that (c) made the time go quickly.

Our fearless leader portrayed Momo-Hime or Princess Peach. I'm not overly familiar with the character so I had to Google her.

The resemblance is uncanny!

My outfit was an act of pure laziness; I found a Superman apron that I'd never even opened from the package. I remember buying this in Canada decades ago. Too bad, I did use the Super-Oven-mitt that came with it so I didn't have it available. Add a cheap paper mask that I found in a toy store and I became "Retired Superman".

By coincidence (if you know this guy, it isn't actually a coincidence), Batman showed up to the party as well. Not quite as lazy as I, he wore Bat-pjs, Bat-Bathrobe (Bat-hrobe?), Bat-socks, and Bat-slippers along with a Bat-mask similar to mine. There was a wee 7-year-old there who made a perfect Wonder Woman, thus we had half a Justice League there.

World's Finest heroes.

Three nuns showed up. Here are two of them.

Sully went the extra mile and had a contaminated sock attached to her.

Not sure of his ranking but this SWAT member was there to help keep the 80 kids under control.

Sheesh, dude. Go eat something, you're wasting away!

It's a bunch of grapes. No wonder he wined all day.

An adorable generic witch and Kiki!

Best outfit ever is this authentic Japanese Gravestone including some 菊 (kiku or chrysanthemums) for adornment.

Part of my responsibility was the creation of a Haunted Maze. I contributed about a dozen spooky masks though this was by far the spookiest!

Throughout the event, I donned different masks. Here we see Super-Pachyderm.

There also several dozen kids and their parents too though I didn't take any photos of them.

Several of the above party-goers also attended a Shoot-em-up gala (Shooting Bar Heavens) last weekend as well. I still have a scar from one hit on my hand.

No getting drunk or shooting zombies. Aww, too bad.

These were two of a group of young lads who really got into the game.

My protective head gear.

A look at the acquisition of Trump...

Finally, a couple of delicious-looking cookies I just consumed.

Spoiler alert: they weren't delicious.
