Goblins and ghosties are roaming the streets tonight hopefully dressed in their handmade finery. This year I saw some great homemade costumes: a girl in a Coke can made from recycled cardboard that even had the ingredient list hand written in both English AND French, a Mad Hatter straight out of Tim Burton with green contact lenses and all- but the best, hands down, was the astronaut suit with an ultra-realistic papier mache helmet and NASA badges hand-stitched by a loving Dad.
What were your favorite costumes out on the street this year?
my son’s costume!
he emphatically requested a blue-ringed octopus costume (“the most poisonous creature in the ocean!”). it was fun trying to figure that one out. biggest lesson learned? reinforce those seams.
