For Halloween this year, Andres choose to be Marty McFly & the Delorean time machine from the Back to the Future Trilogy. It was a toss up between this time traveling machine and his other favorite, but since Marty made his return to 2015 recently, this was the obvious choice, and no doubt a popular one for a new generation of fans. Mark worked his magic again by creating the costume using insulation foam, silver shelf liner adhesive, Christmas lights, glo sticks, legos, and odd bits from the garage and previous costumes. The result was a hybrid of the first and second Delorean and a very happy kid who had a blast getting into character and trick or treating. Andres turns ten in a few weeks..I wish time would slow down just a bit!
November 1st and 2nd marks the observance of Dia de los Muertos. Here is a beautiful short film about the preparations and festivities surrounding the Day of the Dead in Oaxaca, Mexico. Credit: film by Bob Krist.
