Neighbor Daroom just sent me this podium-grade contender for the Best Bernal Heights Halloween Costume of 2013.
It comes in the form of a live impersonation of the mysterious but Yelp-popular Sheepskin City (and discount Toyota Prius battery service provider) that’s such a prominent fixture on the corner of Cesar Chavez and Bryant.
Did you see any other awesome costumes in Bernal yesterday? Send ’em in! bernalwood@gmail.
UPDATE: Photobernalist Adrian Mendoza shares his photos of becostumed Bernalese from yesterday:
1. Carolina Vallejo invokes her inner “Frida Kahlo” as she staffs the Copy Central Mission on Halloween:
2. This gentleman was sitting outside the Bernal Library, waiting for his wife and child, one of which, he said, would be dressed as wasabi:
3. Land shark attack!
4. Goldilocks and the 3 Bears:
5. Trick or treaters:
6. Mother and son on the 67 bus. “Don’t worry, mijo,” she said, “no one’s going to mistake you for a real cholo. You’re carrying a “Monsters, Inc” candy bag.”
UPDATE: Miss Lisa from the Bernal Heights Rec Center After School programs sends this along:
After the mini carnival run by our middle schoolers on Halloween day, a few of us went Trick or Treating on Cortland. A student named Younger dressed as a Bloody Butcher, complete with a sickle and a package of wrapped brains. I knew that we had to pay a visit to Avedano’s, and they were awesome to let us take some pics:
