Okay – so my wife Diane and I like to blow conventions and do our own thing. But even we were surprised at how crazy our costumes were for Saturday’s ‘red carpet’ at Chez Schroeder Oddie Brown, where we would have picked up the Best Dressed award if there were one. Custom Carpet & Interiors in Sechelt were great sports and gave us carpet samples and bits, and I spent an hour shaving a carpeted yak as it were to get my beard/moustache/sideburns in shape. But it was all Diane’s brilliant idea… our annual companions for the soiree were already guessing we’d do something out of The Revenant and we’re nothing if not predictably unpredictable. (In past years we have been Richard Parker from The Life of Pi, the sleazy couple from American Hustle, and Academy Auditors. Everyone else does the beautiful women bit!)
Good thing I left the raw bison liver behind.
