Golden retrievers Phoenix and Aladdin are dressed as Mary Puppins and Bert, the chimney sweep. They are “practically perfect in every way”! They have gone to the roof-top to “step in time”, where Bert, covered with soot, is perched on a chimney with his sweeper over his shoulder. Mary is holding on to her parrot head umbrella and is hovering near Bert. Both costumes were made by hand. The chimney brush was made of hard cardboard and black coffee stirrers. The background was created out of black and yellow posterboard. This photo was not digitally altered in any way.

She had so many puppies, she didn’t know what to do;
She gave them some bones without any bread;
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
Well, that’s not very nice! At least Rina’s puppies look like they are having a good time.

Aladdin and Phoenix, as the ghosts of the Luminous Lady and the Gray Gentleman.
This young couple was courting back in the 1700′s, but their parents did not approve. They agreed to sneak off one night late in October and elope. They decided to meet by the waterfall at midnight. When the Lady got there, however, the Gentleman told her he had changed his mind. The Lady became enraged and pushed the gentleman away from her. He began to lose his balance and grabbed onto the Lady, and they both toppled into the waterfall and they drowned in the strong currents. To this day, the Lady is always spotted glowing with rage every All Hallow’s Eve, and so her ghost is called the Luminous Lady. Every year at midnight the Lady becomes so angry with the Gentleman for pulling her into the water that she takes out a sword and swipes off his head. The Gray Gentleman then carries his head until the following evening, when he is able to reattach it.
