The wife and I just got back from Cleveland, visiting my relatives. My cousin Vinnie had a school report on New Mexico and requested an Alien Costume. Alex had the idea to make a paper mache mask. I had the idea to make it especially creepy. I intended to have it have a little smile, but after seeing the finished product, that would have pushed the whole mask into nightmare inducing teritory. By the way, paper mache stinks when it is dry, but then again, neither of us had to wear it.
