Today, we are contemplating Halloween costumes. One must prepare oneself sufficiently in advance so as to assure a unique and emotionally satisfying costume experience. Two years ago, my husband dressed as the Greatest American Hero. Here we see Homestar Runner in a similar costume. The wig has come in handy since then, once for a 70's party, and again on Napoleon Dynamite Day at the elementary school. Which brings me to another point: never discard any article that may someday come in handy on Halloween. Wesley, dressed as a fly last year, wore wings made of window meshing and fly eyes and antennae made out of small wire mesh strainers. Abby, wanting to be included, wishes to point out that she makes use of her dance costumes yearly on Halloween. (Truth be told, the costumes are the only reason why I have kept her in dance as long as I have.)
Alas, we are currently at a loss for ideas so far this year. Suggestions would be appreciated.
