You’ve probably realized I’m a little Halloween-heavy on posts this time of year. Blame it on the fact that stores have had it ingrained in my head since mid-August or maybe even the 5th of July. There’s a lot of discussion in my little humble abode about The Boy’s idea for Halloween, and while it’s pretty detailed and specific, it’s not really something we’re going to be able to find at any of the Halloween Costume Stores around the area. And even if we did, it’s not likely they’d have his costume idea in a small boy’s size.
We’ve entertained the thought (and half way executed that same thought) of looking for a small men’s wetsuit at a thrift store to build his costume onto. And then there’s something about a specialized discount fabric store that we have to go to in order to get the particular material we need to attach to this wet suit… that we haven’t managed to locate yet. In other words, we’re running a little short on time when it comes to creating The World’s Best Preteen Boy Costume.
If we keep up at this pace, we’re going to have to swallow our pride, throw a sheet over him (perhaps forget to cut out the eye holes) and send him on his trick or treating way. And then try a little harder in a few weeks to convince him to look into Christmas Costumes. What? All the cool kids are doing it!
