Hungry Halloween...time for SUSHI

Lee and I cheated this year.  We reincarnated our costumes from last Halloween since we were short on time this year.  But we made it even better!

We present to you...(cue Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra)

Sushi: Limited and Souped-Up Version, Circa 2010

As some of you remember, we were sushi last year for Halloween. It took us a long time to decide on a costume and when we finally figured it out, it took us a couple days to make them.

Sushi: Take 1 during Halloween 2009

These costumes are made of cardboard, plenty of duct tape, paint, packing peanuts, and some camping foam.  That's it!  They were a hit last year and we thought we might have a chance of winning a costume contest or something if we snazzed them up a bit.

This year, we added more packing peanuts and ones that were "rice" shaped.

We secured the "piece of salmon"...

And we had to top off our sushi with some traditional Japanese ingredients...
...I had a hat of tobiko (aka roe or caviar or just plain fish eggs)...

...and Lee had some wasabi that got a little out of control as the night went on.

The souped-up version is definitely cooler.  Totally worth the tune-up!

We DID win something for being in a costume contest at the Canyons and overall got a couple one-day ski passes.  Woot woot!

And everywhere we went, everyone kept telling us how hungry they were.  Weird, huh?

By the end of the evening, our little sushis were worn out and just needed to rest and have a cup of hot chocolate.

They deserved it!  Happy Halloween!
