costume update

That kid with the crappy half-assed Halloween costume?  Yeah, he’s mine.

He has adorable, lovingly sewn dress-up clothes from his auntie. He has a crafty mom who carefully collected all the supplies to make his Philly Phanatic costume, which he swore he wanted for two weeks.  We’re also comfortably off- we could just buy a costume, if he was asking for something that was sold in stores. And the day before his Halloween party, he decided he wanted to be a tree. 

I don’t think I can buy that at Target. 

Hello, safety pins!

    Noah 1, Heather 0. Pin some leaves on his shirt and call him a tree. If you want to get fancy, stick a few more on a strip of paper and make a headband / hat.

    Suggestion from the Environment instructors: go with the Pine Fresh air freshener tree option. Two sheets of green construction paper, cut into air freshener tree shape, with strings over the shoulders like a sandwich board. Taping on car air fresheners for added pine scent is optional. That’s how Andrew dressed up as a tree for Halloween when he was a kid (at 21).

    Are you still going to do the Philly Phanatic costume for trick-or-treating? I looked it up, and that looks challenging!

    Looking forward to seeing a picture of what he actually wore to his party.
