My wife and I won a costume contest in a private party, we didn’t actually won anything material, just the satisfaction, but it was a nice feeling. We bought every part of our costumes in different places, mostly by Internet, but also in local shops. My wife trim my wig because was too long for my taste. She’s a dentist and made the vampire fangs in her office, they look very very real! The cane is real and heavy, it’s not one of those plastic props. I’m wearing my tuxedo pants that I used in my wedding almost two years ago.
