I don’t normally publish celebrity Halloween costume photos, but this pikker of Sir Patrick Stewart dressed as a lobster was too good to pass up. I hope that I have his energy and since of fun when I’m his age.
I know, I know. You were beginning to wonder if a Halloween Roundup for 2013 would ever be posted. Gotta tell you I was sort of wondering, too, but I finally decided just to do it. I haven’t finished sourcing some of the pictures yet, but at this point, I figured that perfection was the enemy of accomplishment.
