Portland Oregon: Costume Time

We love spending the Christmas holidays in Portland.  The city is festive and at its most charming during the holiday season.  Once evening Kayla and I ran into a crowd of perhaps 100 Santas making their way from one Pearl District bar to another, sampling holiday spirits.

It seems that holiday costume parties are a local tradition and many stores put out the most outrageous cloths and masks for costumes.  So naturally we just had to check out the Goodwill store near our hotel to see what was on offer. And we found that some holiday "spirits" were awaiting us.

Pretty colorful, but who would wear it?

A couple of locals had their own notions about how to celebrate the holiday.

After the whimsy, we headed off into the city for another day of exploration.
