I’ve figured out the logistics of the costumes, purchased much of the material, begun cutting the pieces, and conceptualizing the rest. I’m really excited. Whereas last year I was still sewing on our way to the Hallowe’en party, I think this year I might actually be done in advance. I just hope the costumes aren’t too “wierd”. Out here most people just opt for something they bought at the Disney Store. That’s not really my style, but I am getting tired of having to explain the costumes every year.
Two years ago, when Little Red was the Duracell Battery people said, “oh! because he keeps going and going?” (Well, that’s Energizer… Very few people connected the coppertop battery with the coppertop kid.)
Last year he chose to be Curious George. The monkey, you will note, does not have a tail, so all night long people said, “what a cute little bear.” (grrrr.)
I’m excited for Hallowe’en this year. I think the costumes will work out. If I have to explain this year then people need to see a diatician! But don’t ask, because I never reveal the costumes until they’re done (or almost done, as in the case of last year’s sprint to the end.)
