Well, it's November 1st which means it's time for the annual PHSAD - Post Halloween Season Affective Disorder. The good news is I've got some pics from Salem last night, thanks to my mom and wife. I can't exactly work anything in costume.
Also, Creative Salem has a TON of photos of people in costume round Salem and from the Halloween Ball at the Hawthorne Hotel. Absolutely worth checking them all out!
Nightmare was well represented this year.
There were also quite a few Beetlejuice costumes out there.
One of my favorites. Simple but looks great.
This homemade Gremlin is wild!
And an amazing homemade Alien.
This Gomez Addams should be dressed as John Cleese!
There were about 6 of these dinos traveling in a pack having a grand old time chasing each other and bumping into themselves.
It wasn't as crowded as previous years, but maybe that's because it was a Tuesday night. There was a huge police presence and some intersections were blockaded with school buses but I never really thought about it until seeing them. Sadly, these are the times we live in. But despite that, I'd say I had an above average night. No costume issues and plenty of people wanting to take pics with the Salem Creep made for a fun time!
There's more pics over on Flickr.
I'm going to go enjoy the last day of my mini-vacation.
