For Halloween this year, I went to the totally awesome Site 3 Mad Engineers Ball, a Halloween party for makers. They packed the place!
The Facebook group claims that there were 69 people in attendance, I think there may have been even more than that. Anyway, I had a great time in my wizard costume, which I expanded from last year with the addition of a totally-pimping purple cape thing, that looked much more wizard-like than last year’s leopard-print jacket. The staff though I left exactly the same, and it makes the same great impression as last year but had the same fragility. The level of competition for the costume contest was *intense* at the party, I didn’t even make it into the finals this year – though I’m pleased to report that many of my favorite costumes did, like the Wicked Witch of the East, the Big Bad Wolf, and of course the winner: Steampunk Barbie, in original box!
