Hallow Weenie! (Captain Jack at my door!)





LITTLE PIRATE: "Are you Jack Sparrow?"

"Depends 'ou's asking, mate."






TRICKORTREATING MOM "I like your costume!"

"Thank you darling."

TRICKORTREATING MOM: "No, I really like your costume."





"Oh look! Princesses! I love princesses!"




ASSORTED GOBLINS: "You're Jack Sparrow!"

"That's Captain Jack Sparrow."





"WHY is the RUM always GONE?"

I hear they're looking for a stand-in for Johnny. Benefits might be nice.

Matt Mullenix said...

Great job! But how come you know so much about how this Jack Sparrow guy should look? You must have really, really, really, studied him.

Anita said...

OMG! Fabulous! You are GOOD...!!

CindyDianne said...

HA HA HA! You do Pirate so well! Captain Jack rawks and so do you!

I am off to substitute teach at the Junior High today. Pray for me.

Heidi the Hick said...

Lynn, do you think they'll notice the height difference? And the big bum?

Geez I should have invited you down for trick or treat. Would have been good for a laugh!

Matt, I have put hours and hours and hours of study into this project. Yes. A dedicated student, that's me.

Anita, haha, if only I'd been feeling totally great last night (might be coming down with something and it's not rum!) I would have had a few more facial expressions going on! To my credit I did stay in character...

Cindy I did rock the pirate thing. I am a pirate. I steal words. (WHY are you substitute teaching??? Who has done this to you?! We'll be checking in later to make sure you survived.)

Heidi the Hick said...

Honestly I think I scared a few kids. They backed away pretty quick as soon as I dropped the candy into the bag.

And there were a couple of moms who were lookin at me kinda...funny...

Weird eh!

Balloon Pirate said...

F**kin' A!

What an awsome costume. Did you do the voice, too?

I worre the same costume I had for the last few years: tired daddy.

Great costume!

yeharr

Balloon Pirate said...

And I think you may have stirred some mommy loins, too....

I'm just sayin'...

Looks good.
I won't be able to upload any of my pics until late tonight or tomorrow.
Work and school seem to get in the way of that.

coffeypot said...

You don't look bad as a boy. Or Johnny doesn't look bad as an effeminate pirate. Which is it?

Heidi the Hick said...

Aha! It's me other favourite pirate! You know I did the voice too, or as much as a woman with a 14 year old girl's voice can do THE VOICE!

Honestly I wish I'd been feeling totally okay last night because I would have really gotten into it. Maybe it's better this way because a lot of little kids were rather visibly freaked out when this dirty pirate answered the door.

And the mommies?

Here's the weird thing about The Jack Sparrow Phenomenon: they don't care. They don't care who's under the make up and the beads and belts.

I'm just saying...

Heidi the Hick said...

KC- you did dress up right??? It's okay, the pictures'll be worth waiting for!

Coffeypot-

"You don't look bad as a boy. Or Johnny doesn't look bad as an effeminate pirate. Which is it?"

BOTH!

Heidi the Hick said...

By the way, my husband was both amused and extremely disturbed by the costume.

I kept saying, "Damn, I am one fine lookin gentleman," and he kept saying something that sounded like, "Eerruuughh."

Marni said...

That is AWESOME!

Biddie said...

Moms looking at you funny?

hahahahahhaha! I LOVE it. That cracks me up!

Heidi the Hick said...

Seriously.

Told ya I was a fine looking gentleman.

hehehehehe!

Adrienne said...

Super fabulous costume!! Am very jealous, I definitely could not pull that one off!

But at least now we have uncovered the secret why Ms. Hick keeps her face hidden. Honey, some wax, or a razor and shaving cream could take care of that easily!

dilling said...

cuz you're drinking it!!!

Heidi the Hick said...

haha! I used hair removal wax to stick my beard braids to my chin! It didn't work very well though.

NOBODY MOVE! I've dropped me beard strings.

I should have just stopped plucking the whiskers out of my mole hair for a few days!

hahaha! Ain't I hot stuff mate?

Heidi the Hick said...

Dilling- the rum bottle was not just a prop, baby!

Bunny said...

great job on the costume!! hope you get feeling better!!

M7-031y-125 said...

If I were human, I would say that you look like and attractive human male.

Tod said...

OMG. You look fabulous! I did a double take when I saw your pic. That is so cool!

Heidi the Hick said...

Bunny, it's all stuff from my closet! Hmm...looks like I really am a pirate after all...

I'm just laying low today. and yeah, I felt nasty BEFORE the rum came out!

mechanical friend with dashes and letters and numbers- I will take that as a compliment.

Tod- oh! Please call me fabulous again! Please!

rain said...

Cap'n Jack, you bad - er' - boy you.

CindyDianne said...

I survived. I sub sometimes to make some extra money for JJ's board.

coffeypot said...

Heidi, go to my site and look at my blog role for GIZMOROX and go to her site. It's somehting you can train your horses to do.

A Paperback Writer said...

WOW.
Dang. You are good, woman. One hot pirate.

Oh, a word about the beard: use spirit gum next time. You have to take it off with rubbing alcohol (rum might work, though), but it keeps fake beards on. Trust me: I've done lots and lots of fake beards on teens who can't grow their own for lots and lots of school plays.

Jethro said...

Seriously, it's quite disturbing to come home and find out that your beautiful wife has been transformed into a drunken, but good lookin' pirate.

If it wasn't so convincing, I'd be a little less uneasy...

"Hi Honey, I'm..."

"Take my picture"

"Let me get the Captain Morgan's out... We're going to need it.."

Jethro said...

ps. You still awake? Just put the last mix down... "I Exalt Thee" for 4 and half minutes... Who's idea of a composition is that?

seaside1 said...

Seriously, that first photo of you HAD ME FOOLED COMPLETELY and I was thinking, "Oh, good, she's posted another Johnny and she always finds the neatest ones and I'm so ready for a Johnny fix tonight...bless her heart." Then I scrolled down and felt a wee bit foolish. I guess I don't know Mr. Depp as well as I thought I did.
And...completely off topic while I sit here wearing the dunce cap, I read about a book on someone's blog last night and immediately thought of you. It's called RIDE THE RISING WIND: ONE WOMAN'S JOURNEY ACROSS CANADA by Barbara Kingscote. It's the memoir of a twenty-year old woman's journey by horseback across Canada in 1950.
Barb (not the one that wrote the book!)

Heidi the Hick said...

Note to self: "spirit gum" for attaching fake beards...for next time...hehehehehe!

Jethro, seriously, I wasn't drunken already by the time you got home. That was ACTING! I'm so good at it!

But as you know, the rum bottle was real. That big swig though, I just kind of held the bottle there for awhile. More ACTING. Okay I drank some of it. Went down pretty good too. Thanks for offering.

Arencha glad I don't have a beard in real life honey?

Barb- hhaha, don't feel bad, I confused quite a few kids. And their mothers.

Heidi the Hick said...

In cse you're wondering, yes, I flounced down the stairs and glared at everybody at the door.

ACTING.

captain corky said...

Very nice! Can I have some Rum? I hear it's not bad. ;)

emily said...

That made me laugh out loud!

Heidi the Hick said...

My work here is done...!

Tod said...

You're fabulous, fabulous, fabulous :)
