It has been really difficult to get Halloween costumes figured out this year. First of all, Starling couldn’t decide so I ended up buying her a bunch of costumes and just letting her pick at the last minute. She decided to be a cowgirl! Adorbs!
Merlin actually came home from school with a costume. His class has been reading a book called Henry Potter and had voted to all dress in costumes from the story as a class. Mr. Williams is very understanding about my busy schedule and gave Merlin a costume to be Professor Snake. I asked if Snake was the hero and Merlin said no! I was outraged. I tossed the costume in a drawer or something and couldn’t find it this morning. Luckily I had an old homemade horse costume that Karen had given me awhile ago that went perfectly with Starling’s costume. Problem solved. Merlin was upset but, oh well. The tail kind of looks like a donkey tail, but let’s call it a horse so he doesn’t start crying like a baby again.
My costume was the hardest to find! I really wanted to be something historical so I looked for a sexy suffragette costume everywhere. They just don’t seem to make them. I ended up with a slutty Puritan costume which is cute, but not quite what I had in mind. I am looking forward to wearing it at the children’s costume parade at school. I wonder if Mr. Williams will notice that I am a history fan too?
Hummus is going as a baby in a stroller, lol.
