Once again, I turned Halloween into a major production. I attended to Halloween costume parties, helped with the South Riding Halloween Spooktacular, decorated the front of my townhouse.
Professionals in the City held a Singles in the Suburbs ~ Reston Town Center Halloween Bar Crawl on Friday, October 27, 2006. I decided to attend the party and dressed as an "alien astronaut."
Mike dressed as an alien astronaut for the Halloween party. I was amazed how many people had to ask what I was supposed to be.

Things To Do DC held their Huge Halloween Graveyard Jam at the Hard Rock Cafe in Washington, DC on Saturday, October 28, 2006. Once again, I decided to attend the party and dressed as an "alien astronaut."

After about two hours, they opened the 2nd floor giving everyone a little more room to party. Looking down from the 2nd floor.

South Riding held its annual Halloween Spooktacular on Sunday, October 29th, 2006. The event was scheduled for Saturday but moved to Sunday due to weather. I had volunteered myself and Supakorn to help out by wearing two inflatable costumes.

Mike, in the Pirate costume, and Supakorn, in the Scarecrow costume, got some help walking in the parade.

A few weeks before Halloween, I pulled out the Halloween decorations and started to decorate the front steps. The weekend before Halloween, Supakorn helped me put the finishing touches on a few of the decorations. We moved the last few pieces to the driveway in the afternoon on Halloween.
Mike dressed as a skeleton pirate for Halloween. The costume matched the decorations on the driveway better than the alien astronaut costume.
Once again, I decorated the driveway and front steps for Halloween

A few of the decorations on my driveway after sunset. I made the jail cell out of dowel rods and put a child's pirate costume on a skeleton. The other characters were made out of PVC pipes.
