Simon and Garfunkel: Greatest Hits

Happy belated Halloween! Did you dress up this year? Chris and I went to a friend's costume party on Saturday as Simon and Garfunkel, a la their greatest hits album:


And if I do say so myself, we totally nailed it...


Amazingly enough, we had nearly everything for this costume. Both of the jackets were Chris' and I borrowed the shirt from his mom. The Garfunkel wig was the only blonde (white) afro we could find, and it was massive... we trimmed it down to about half its size. I could honestly make another wig with all the scraps we have. Totally worth it, though.

Unfortunately, hardly anyone at the party knew who Simon and Garfunkel were. What has become of my generation? When we listed off a few of their hits, someone responded, "Oh, I thought the Beatles sang that." No. The Beatles did not sing the Sound of Silence. It practically broke my heart... I bought my first Simon and Garfunkel album in seventh grade. You know the Beatles didn't sing the Sound of Silence, right? Right??

Anyway, I hope you had a great Halloween. Onward to Thanksgiving! :)

umm, love your costumes. perfect.

i am so mad at my dad for getting rid of all of his simon and garfunkel LPs, especially now that I have a record player, and most of those cost a fortune! i did just buy a beatles album for $12 from a local thrift store. such a steal. :)
