The "Desperate for a Cure Housewives" Halloween Bash

Who is this gorgeous Bollywood Star?......oh that's my Girl!

Last night there was a big bash put on by my friends
the "Desperate For a Cure Housewives"
Every year, they raise a ton of money for Breast Cancer.  One of their most popular fundraisers is the annual Halloween bash.  I applogise for the lousy photos, but it was dark and full of boisterous people who just won't stand still for a second to get a good photo.

Mad Hatter and his Wife. 
The women did seem to find the Pirate sexy 
The always lovely Princess Caroline. 
Sumo?  this one had a battery operated fan that kept Sumo inflated 
Sometimes a Professor just wants to be a Pricess for a Day. 
I know Who it is, but I don't know Who it is????
The beauty of this party, is it is multi-generational. And it has become a community event.  Although run by the ladies of the group, all their kids come and their friends.  It a mixed party of parents and kids and their friends, all wanting to do something for the cause and have a blast doing it.

Pit Stop? 
Barry Bonds. 
Ride around Sally
Me with Sumo Guy in my cowgirl attire...... 
Some men just love dressing as a woman........Bet you hope your Hooters waitress doesn't look like this. 
Beauty Queens..... 
The Donald 
Who needs a costume when your that cute!

If you've got it flaunt it.....Our guest from LA Ink... Kat Von-Whatever 
Betty Rubble 
Typical Canadian Man at a bar. 
Haven't a clue..... 
Who knew that Fried Eggs could have so much fun. 
Jail Birds and Whatever WWF guy this is....

Great job girls, organizing this one....
Happy Halloween.

  1. Hi! I stopped over to visit you ~ from Anita's "Far from Rubies" blog. She participated in your architect meme... What a great idea! I am teaching my reading students about "setting" during the month of November. I was thinking the photos would make great "story starters."

    Your costume party photos are fabulous! I must email your post to my daughter... She attends a costume party every October... This year she's dressing as Jane Fonda {from her '80's exercise video days}.
    It was fun stopping by!
    Have a lovely weekend ~ Maria
