On October 27th we marched in the Anoka Halloween Parade! It was cool out, but actually perfect weather for our costumes (which are usually overly warm). We had a really terrific turnout, and we won third place as best non-royalty float!
I went as Admiral Ackbar, and had plans to walk in the parade, but I ended up riding in the firetruck. I’m glad I didn’t walk, because I don’t get very much air into the mask and I think I would have eventually passed out. I’m still getting used to what my limits are in that costume – I’m so used to having my face exposed that wearing a mask like this is a huge adjustment.
