I love to sew and craft, especially when it's easy and fun, which his costume is. I also love home-made costumes. That's what we always had as kids, my mom must have cut up a million bridesmaid dresses to use as princess and fairies. One time she hired a pumpkin costume made that I wore then each of my sisters and most of my cousins, it was cute the top of the pumpkin (the stem) was a hat. Man she got her use out of that one. When I think of halloween that's what I think of; the making of the costume. I have this vivid mental image of a pair of fairy wings made out of poster board and glitter, and a wand that was made out of a wooden spoon and tinfoil star. The costumes today are totally cheap (cheaply made, they are NOT cheap to buy) and so unoriginal. I mean I'll see like 30 pirates from the caribbean and 100 cheerleaders etc. And they seem ugly too not cute at all dumb plastic masks that the elastic breaks off of after like the second house. Any way not to diss everyones costume but what happened to the days of scrounging around good will for that perfect set of bell bottoms for your hippie costume? Well it is my hope to make my kids costumes at least until they just have to be the dumb blue power ranger.
Oh and if our church collected enough candy (500 lbs) Brian has to dress up as the old school Batman, with tights! And his boss is going as Robin. Isn't that awesomely funny?
