West Seattle Halloween ’08, report #3

That’s our quick clip from Skeleton Theatre, staged annually with “talking” skeletons in the yard at 36th/Hanford (here’s a map; here’s the preview we published Thursday). Big crowd when we stopped by in the 8 pm hour last night; they’ll do it all again tonight, 6-9 pm (be prepared to park and walk a couple blocks). Not far from there, Todd spotted a landlocked Jaws – and says he heard the movie theme music playing in the background:

Next, some real animals — 2 costumed dogs. First, Emily sent this photo of Fiona:

And Lisa wanted to share this pic of her puggle pup Biffy:

We’ve got a cute human to show you too — Jamie‘s son Owen in “Mr. Roboto” mode:

A few more jack-o-lanterns … Debbie in Morgan Junction sent these (and gives a shoutout to zombiepumpkins.com as a “great site for pumpkin patterns”):

And from Jeff Gilbert of Feedback Lounge (also in M-Junction) fame says someone “anonymously sent this (to him) claiming (it’s) a West Seattle pumpkin”:

Ready to move on to the winter holidays now? Admiral Church has a holiday bazaar today, 9 am-3 pm! And one more bridge between the holidays – this photo came in on Halloween, but was from the Kiwanis Halloween Carnival a week earlier at Hiawatha:

West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival vice president Deena Mahn sent the photo with this info:

The WS Hi-Yu 08-09 Junior Court, Princesses Elyse Mitchell and Anna Fuller, along with Queen Zoe Mahn, struck a ‘glam’ pose at the Hiawatha Community Center Halloween Carnival on Friday, Oct 24th. The royalty trio greeted tykes to teens and passed out participant ribbons to ghouls, witches, and other costumed participants at their first official event. Look for the Royalty Court at the upcoming annual Kiwanis Breakfast on Saturday, Dec 6th, Masonic Temple. They will be selling hand-blown glass holiday ornaments ($25) and ‘new style’ Hi-Yu collector pins ($5).

WSB covered the Junior Court’s crowning last July 18 (and the Senior Court’s crowning a few days later).

    We had such a great time last night – more than one hundred kids knocked on our door! So many cute, polite kids in colorful costumes. Can’t wait to see Skeleton Theatre tonight.

    The predator pumpkin was done by Ray Villafane of Villafane Studios in Michigan. Photos of his pumpkins have been passed around the Internet a lot this past week, and I think he was on Food Network recently, though I missed seeing it.
