West Seattle Halloween ’07

Even as some of the bar parties just start getting into gear, we are in for the night. We traveled north to south, east to west, across West Seattle, including a stop at Skeleton Theatre (we’ll put up video in the morning — it’s playing again tomorrow night, so you have another chance to go see for yourself). We saw luminaria and lights, costumes from A(ngels) to Z(ombies), but we’re also glad to be back at WSB HQ sharing your Halloween scenes — including this last round of photos before the Witching Hour arrives. First, from the inbox: Tigger turned up to greet trick-or-treaters at Westwood Village tonight:


More major cuteness from the inbox: Baby Nate goes crustacean for his first Halloween:


We had seen this cool decoration outside a house not far from Skeleton Theatre but didn’t get a picture – Todd did:


Todd also was one of 2 people who sent us a photo of “Feed-O” the scary cat – this “Feed-O” photo is by MIST, who says the cat “was spitting out gummy rats”!


Now a final round of jack-o-lanterns. From Danny and Diane, a pumpkin with a statement:


A seasonal pumpkin array, from “mtnester” of Shorewood:


Huindekmi sent this next one and noted, “We don’t carve our pumpkin till Halloween”:


And the proud wife of Dan sends his creation, saying, “he just LOVES Halloween” …


Speaking of attacks – we have heard one more time from “West Seattle Art Attack,” who e-mailed WSB to say: “I placed a final pumpkin tonight in a deserving yard. It was a very pretty purple and pink one that my wife didn’t want to part with. I’ve discreetly checked on a couple of my previous placements and they haven’t moved. I’m not sure if the owners even know they are there.” Quick! Go check your yard (or tell your friends to check theirs)! You don’t want an unnoticed WSAA pumpkin sitting out there till spring … 11:55 PM ADDENDUM: This blogger tells the sorrowful saga of a nearly trick-or-treater-less night for her first West Seattle Halloween. Boo!

    We didn’t have anyone come to our door. My husband was disappointed – he was dressed in his costume, we had the lights on, and we had treats for everyone, and just sat there waiting all night. And since he works from home, he would’ve been here for early kids too. Like the blogger, we wondered if the people who lived in our house last year didn’t do anything, so they knew to avoid us. However, when we decided to just forget about it and go out to dinner, we noticed absolutely no one out trick-or-treating. Weird.

    Genesee Hill was packed with kids last night, even some kids that had moved away came back to Trick-or-Treat. This is our 3rd Halloween in WS, the 1st year I had bags of candy left over, the 2nd year we had so many kids come that I had to start handing out the candy that my girls had collected and this year there was candy left over again. You just never can tell…

    We live on Gatewood Hill and had about 6-7 doorbell rings total. Our kids reported more action on other streets in the neighborhood – but still, it seemed really quiet out there. Maybe everyone just does the Westwood Village/Admiral Junction thing these days?? Oh well … we have a lot of skittles and starburst in our future – next year I’m just buying one bag.

Sorry, comment time is over.
