Last Friday night we got to attended a masquerade party, a 10 year wedding anniversary celebration for our campus pastor and his wife known as Harleween. We'd spent a couple weeks browsing for masks online, but kept getting frustrated with prices. A couple days before the party I made a quick trip to Joann Fabrics and Michaels to see what I could find in the way of mask supplies. We both got base masks to start with, and then added paint, paper mache, edging, feathers, and such. Tom took a set of lenses out of one of his older pairs of glasses and attached them to his mask so he could still see.
The party was at the World Trade Center in Seattle, looking out over Lake Union. It was a super rainy night, which made the view a little more fun. We had a lot of fun celebrating with the Harlemans, visiting with our friends, and munching on yummy snacks and cupcakes (apricot cranberry punch is a wondrous thing)! I even got to re-use the matron of honor dress from Rebecca's wedding!
