2008 Best Costumes

These Excellent Costumes get awards for Runner-up
Best
Costumes at the 2008 Halloween Party. 

Dan and Judy Bates wore wonderful 1800s Mississippi Riverboat costumes.  However, Dan informed me they actually Dickens costumes.
Mark Twain/Charles Dickens, big deal.  Either way, they are great!

When it comes to "Big Bad Wolf", this guy is very impressive.
If I'm Grandma, I sure don't want him waiting for me.
Sorry, I don't know who he is. Maybe someone can help me out!
 

Rowena Roche and Charlie Denton were definitely the coolest of the Hippies!  Now that I think of it, I don't recall hippies being this clean cut
or costume-coordinated. But they were still gorgeous together!  Maybe they are a Disco couple.  The Peace symbol has me confused.

Jackie Chang and Jack Benard were positively groovy!
And yes, this is more the "Look" I recall from this era.

 

Mike and Brenda Dwyer as Joe the Plumber and Mrs. Joe
 

I don't know their names, but I thought their outfits were gorgeous
 

Jim Colby as Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter and Marlane Kayfes as some sort of bird.  She made the costume, by the way.
 

Betty and Keith Baker were colorful and very cute as well! 
I like the mustache.
 

I don't know who Beetlejuice and his girlfriend are, but Becky Bratton definitely seems put out they had the nerve to wear the same costume as she did!

I do not know who these two ladies are, but I enjoyed their outfits. 
Their ribbons say "Shopping Fair". They are practically twins! 
I wonder if they are twins in real life.


A TIE FOR THE CUTEST PICTURE AWARD
 

These guys didn't win best costume,
but they did tie for the Runnerup "Cutest Picture Award"

Maite Rombado and Leroy Ginzel also tied for
the Runnerup "Cutest Picture Award"

 

WINNER, CUTEST PICTURE AWARD

The hand's-down winner of this year's Cutest Picture Award goes to our photographer, Steve Gabino,
and his beautiful girlfriend Vivian Gufstafson.
Now surely you competitive types will complain that Steve had an unfair advantage.  Tough. They are too cute not to win.
 

 

 A tie for the Runner-up Best Group Picture -
 The Arab Family and The Candy Girls!

 

Joy , Gina's husband Brandon, Gina, and Ann Al-Jazrawi
These are authentic outfits, by the way

Lin Mills, Glenda Lee, Judy Foster
plus special guest star Mary-Denise Duncan as
Cruella de Ville
