(Side Note: Many of you probably don't know this, but Sam gets SUPER into dressing up when it is his own idea. If I try to force him into a costume of my own creation, he is not so interested. But when he comes up with the idea, he runs with it! )
Another thing you may or may not know about Sam, he is a HUGE music buff. So he decided we should go as Slash and Axl Rose from Guns 'n Roses. I was shocked by how many people actually recognized who we were. I guess that just proves that I am not really a child of the 80s.
For some reason, the picture of Axl that we used as inspiration won't link into my blog. Annoying! But Sam drew the tattoos exactly to match, and I really did look just like the original picture (minus the fact that he was topless--meow). We decided the cigarette was too nasty to include, even if it would make Sam more authentic. :)
