Technical costume: General Grievous

This costume was amazing to behold. The creator actually entered two elaborate costumes in the Masquerade, with this my favorite of the two.

You can kind of tell from the people in back that the costume is also very tall.

Like last year, Elvis Stormtrooper and Samurai Stormtrooper were present. I love those costumes, but as they're reruns I didn't snap any photos this time around.

Reprising an old last-minute costume, though my jacket was more appropriate this time. I blame bp for not having more costumes at the ready when I arrived unprepared :).

Ken as Pepe Le Pew
