My mother is going to bug me until I post some pictures, so I’m just getting it over with. All costumes were homemade this year (except York’s; all I had to get for him was a $4 ski mask. Yesss.) My mom made Arabella and India’s capes. I had to do the rest (yay for McCalls pattern #2853! We got our money’s worth with that one.) I can now add “no-sew tutus” and “gigantic mushroom” to my resumé. When I decide to go back to work those things will definitely help me get a high-paying job. Not.
Don’t feel inferior if you don’t have a houseful of handcrafted costumes. We did all last-minute, store-bought/hand-me-down costumes last year. Some Halloweens I’m on my A game. Some just make me want to hide under a rock. Plus you should see what a disaster my house has been all week while I’ve sewn my little heart out.
