“Seatbelts, everyone!”

“Seatbelts, everyone!” October 31, 2012

“Bus, do your stuff!”

As several of you guessed, this year I was Ms Frizzle from The Magic Schoolbus for Halloween.  If you (sadly) aren’t familiar with the PBS show and the tv show, here’s the theme song and intro:

Ms Frizzle’s dress always matched the curriculum for that installment, so I’ve got a belt and sleeve trim made of streptococci bacteria that are being consumed by white blood cells.  There are red blood cells all over the dress, but some of them are ruptured and are spilling out the malaria parasites that destroyed them.  On my back is a T4 bacteriophage.

Unfortunately, one of our party guests isn’t known for being a fan of PBS characters or public school teachers, so I had a narrow escape from the man from Bane Capital.

Happy Halloween all!  Let me know what you dressed as and how you did it!  And remember to take chances! Make mistakes!  and get messy!
