Halloween 2011, plus Occupy Wall Street

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Halloween. For the past few years, we've had work celebrations, and it's become tradition to come dressed as characters from the books we publish. This year was no exception.

Last Monday, I dressed up as the chimaera Madrigal from Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone:
(Madrigal has antelope horns--which were surprisingly hard to find. I had to make do with the devil-like horns I bought on The bat wings are also from etsy.)
Here are a few of the other costumes:
Connie Hsu at the kid on the cover of Todd Parr's The I'm Not Scared Book
Andrew Smith and Ames O'Neill as the young Jane Goodall and her monkey Jubilee from Me...Jane by Patrick McDonnell
Allison Moore at Birdie from Birdie's Big Girl Shoes by Sujean Rim
Liz Casal as Barry Lyga's I Hunt Killers.
(more of a creative interpretation than literal)
Leslie Shumate as author Laini Taylor! Hard at work.
This is a cake. Dressed up as a skull. Really.
me, "Laini", Faye Bi as the marionette Zuzana, and Zoe Luderitz as Karou, all from Daughter of Smoke and Bone

There are more pictures from L,B and other publishers over at Publisher's Weekly. Love all the creative costumes. Did any of you dress up?

I like your wings!

I also like that Occupy Wallstreet uses bikes to power stuff. Pretty cool. That's kind of one of the only things I find about it that's cool. I also must wonder about people w/large incomes making critical generalizations about other people with large incomes.
