So Darin & I have been keepin our eyes out for a neat starburst mirror or clock to hang over our mantle...
we came across one once that we really liked at the Alameda antique fair.. but it turned out to cost over $200 AND it was missing spokes & had a few rusty bits on it.. and Im not about to shell out that kinda money for a damn mirror.
As I was browsing the net the other day I came across a tutorial for a starburst mirror & figured what the hell... I'll try & make my own damn starburst mirror.. and I have to say.. it came out pretty darn cool.
A couple wooden dowels, some various sized mirrors from the craft store, silver paint & a ton of glue sticks and voila!....

Saturday night Darin & I decided to go to the Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge with Ysel & her bf Jay..
it was 80's costume night... so of course we dressed up...
Jay was MC Hammer.. this is the best pic I had of his gold jacket.. it was complete with parachute pants. lol
Darin & I
As for Sunday.. this was Darin & my BIG day... we went all out for these costumes...
Beetlejuice & Miss Argentina (of Beetlejuice)
We had quite a few people asking to take pictures with us. I love that.. it tells me that I did a good job with our costumes =)
We ended up going to Polk St. in San Francisco to bar hop.. but oddly it wasnt as busy as we thought it'd be. I guess it had to do with Halloween falling on a Sunday.. but still, how can you NOT celebrate halloween on the actual halloween day?! It's like celebrating Christmas on some other day than the 24th or 25th. wtf? Whatever. We still had fun.
As for all the people we saw at the bars not dressed up.. alls I have to say is if you're from the U.S. and you DONT celebrate & dress up for halloween... you are LAME and you SUCK. =)
Can't wait for next year.. gotta start thinking of costumes. =)
