Halloween 2013: Who Ya Gonna Call?

I really love Halloween. And I love thematic family costumes. And I have good sports in my family.
We went with a Ghostbusters theme this year. It turns out we may be bigger fans of the movie (and 80's pop culture) than some, but we put together some Comic Con worthy costumes and had a great time.
Jake's parents were with us for the weekend for Sadie's blessing, so it was fun to be with them (and get some last minute help pulling everything/one together).
Here we are at the church Trunk or Treat:
 If you can't tell or don't know, we have: The Keymaster and the Gatekeeper (AKA "There is no Dana, only Zuul" and Vince Clortho --aka the Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis characters), a ghostbuster (probably Vankman), Slimer, Gozer the Gozerian, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (both from the end of the movie).

 He's the best.
"Yes. Have some."
 Honestly, this girl is trooper of the year. What other almost seven year old would get excited about being a very random creepy ghost lady thing from a popular 80's movie? She practiced her hiss for days. I wonder what her teacher thought when she asked Tessa what she was going to be for Halloween, and she answered excitedly, "Gozer the Gozerian!" I love this girl. All bubbly and otherworldly...
 That proton pack looks as big as he is. His belt slid down around his knees! Skinny kid problems.
 My wig. It certainly tied the costume together. Thank you for your big curly 80's fro, Sigourney Weaver.
 The cutest Stay Puft Marshmallow girl on the planet. I was rather proud of this costume. The hat took some ingenuity, of which I had a shred left, thankfully.
 Slobbering Slimer. I snuggled her with a green blanket as we walked around the ward Trunk or Treat and she was fast asleep.
