Flip the Script (Part 5): Halloween Edition

When we opened our South Philadelphia studio on Saturday,  over 130 people poured in to add their upbeat images to our anti-election-stress,  flip-the-script photo campaign….

THERE’S  SOMETHING  STRANGE  IN  YOUR  NEIGHBORHOOD

Given that the East Passyunk Avenue Fall Fest was in full swing Saturday,  it’s no surprise that the crowd included a mad mix of superheroes,  frogs,  princesses and one extremely large chicken.

So to celebrate Halloween,  we’re featuring all our costumed  players and their parents today.

And,  yes,  even the bear and the chicken got along this weekend – which makes us think there’s an over-sized metaphor there for this high-stress election season….

I  AIN’T  AFRAID  OF  NO  GHOSTS

Of course,   by the time these two masked Day of the Dead skeletons strolled in,  Kate was so brain-fried that she kept asking them to smile more for the camera…..

“Is she kidding us, or what?”

WHO  YOU  GONNA  CALL?

So, many thanks to everyone who stopped by on Saturday – it was fun meeting you all!   And check here at  Unexpected Philadelphia  to see dozens more reassuring faces between now and Election Day.
