GI JOE Family Stormed Halloween 2010! Check It Out!

Me Ra Koh

This little family chose to be GI JOE for Halloween this year.  You may remember our year of being the Justice League, and then there was last year when Brian made ALL the neighborhood moms swoon as Edward Cullen.  🙂  This year, it was serious.  Brian and the kids worked on making these costumes for weeks!

Let me first introduce you to Snake Eyes!  And yes, he took a vow of silence for the night…totally impressive!

And then we had the Baroness from GI Joe.  My daughter has been infatuated with the villainess role since she was three years old and first saw Maleficant in Sleeping Beauty.  Pascaline does NOT mess around.  :

Brian had no other choice but to be Storm Shadow, the brother and enemy of Snake Eyes!

And the kids informed me that I was the red head, Scarlett, who carries a crossbow.

Look out!  The GI JOE Crew hit the streets on Halloween!

Neighborhood kids asked Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow to dual each other.  And they never refused.  (so funny!  Brian gets SO INTO Halloween!  I LOVE IT!)

(I love Blaze’s shoes and his whole stance!  So GREAT!)

Hope you had a GREAT Halloween!
