We explored the idea of couples costumes. Who could we dress up as together? We brainstormed on Facebook. Phil & Lil from Rugrats? Mario & Luigi? Rhen & Stimpy? Eminem & 50 Cent? Ross & Rachel? Mary-Kate & Ashley? Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke? Turner & Hooch? Alvin & the Chipmunks? Godzilla & a Japanese businessman?
We narrowed it down to two favourites - Ernie & Bert and Superman & Batman. Apparently Ernie & Bert have some sort of licensing which means they can't mass-produce costumes in their likeness. So that meant our decision was made. Here's a run-down of what happened throughout the night:
We thought we'd go get dinner.
I was offered Halloween candy. Superman approves.
The Monte Cristo hotdog from Benny's American food outlet.
We decided to put on Just Dance, Sarah and Jerida's favourite video game.
Here's Superman and Batman knocking it out.
Kelsey eventually got too hot to keep dancing in his suit, so he reverted back to Bruce Wayne for the rest of the night.
Then we got out Singstar - the only other video game the girls like. We downloaded an app on our phones so we could use them as the microphones.
And since I'm taking part in Movember (there's an explanation on the side of the page), at midnight, Superman had a super-shave. He used one of those kryptonite razors you can pick up at CostCo in Smallville for $15.
