Well, whatever. We had a small dinner party-type gathering last weekend. It featured a post-Actual Dia de los Muertos/pre-Tucson All Souls Procession theme mainly because I have wanted for about three years to try my hand at making sugar skulls and those colorful tissue paper banners.

But first we did Halloween.
|This is Mandia as a tranvestite robot on Halloween.|
|This is me and Mandia on the porch drinking wine and passing out |
candy and glowsticks which were VERY popular.
|This is Raphael, Chris, Kim, Steve, and Mandia still handing out candy several hours later.|
|These are the Jack o' lanterns - mine, Chris' and Kim's, and Raphael's.|
|Dinner party decorations.|
|Papel picado - yes, I made them. It was a lot of picado.|
|Playing a risque card game. No one's mom would approve.|
