Scrapes, Halloween 1999

In my last entry I promised a review of my weekend trip to the haunted Lucerne Inn near Bangor, Maine. Truthfully, it was a long trip jammed into short weekend, and I simply didn't do my due dilligence as an investigative blogger. Instead, I enjoyed myself. After all, it was a cousin's wedding with an open bar. I was pleasantly surprised to see the Lucerne's bar stocked with Shipyard Brewing Company Pumpkinhead Ale.

And although I haven't raided Mom's photo albums, I do have a decent photographic record of my Halloween costumes since 1999.

While living in the college town of Kent, Ohio, I donned this look at a party my roommate and I threw. I was particularly proud of the burnout up the back, which I did by placing the shirt under the front wheel of my newly purchased 1989 Volkswagen GTI. The rest of the look consisted of various burns and road rashes, and was a hit amongst our party guests (or maybe "Wow, nice costume" was a polite precursor to "Dude, you live here? Where's the keg?").

It was my first experiment with liquid latex and toilet paper, and I was very pleased with the results.
