Halloween 1999

Still in San Jose at the same apartment, I decided against the labor-intesive black wall effect and to try some different decorations instead (like the branch wall candle sconces in the decorations section below). Also, the prizes actually did get awarded this year, not only for the costume contest, but also for the quite challenging Halloween Name That Tune Quiz I wrote...Enjoy!
