Happy Halloween!

I love seeing all the costumes inspired by literary characters.  Some of the standouts this year at Willard included Gulliver (complete with Lego Lilliputians) and the Lady of the Lake from Arthurian legends.

My Frost Giant costume was inspired by Neil Gaiman's book  Odd and the Frost Giants which draws heavily from Norse mythology.  You can read more about these cruel and cold-hearted creatures in D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths.  Perfect for these blustery days that are now upon us.
