    You’re wicked and that poor boy will likely end up in prison.

  2. IT’S NOT ME!! It’s all of you, out there in Stupid Cute Sh$t For Babies Land!!
    My kid went to school in a black holocaust cloak, complete with wrapping paper roll handled axe and homemade, paper mach√© bloody-head-on-a-dish. (We’ve gotten more mileage out of that cloak.) Of course, he was homemade T-Rexes before he graduated to the good stuff. I’m not COMPLETELY a loon. I used to make Crusader’s costumes, too. The best was the year Star Wars came out. When I whipped him up a Jawa outfit, by God, he looked like a Jawa. (Or a very short Cuban revolutionary ~ he had crossed bandoleros made from those wide, grommeted ’70’s disco belts and a dyed brown burlap burnoose. Too cool.) No Disney in a box around our house. All homemade, all the time.
    Halloween is the MOST wonderful time of the year.

    Way cool, THS! Originality goes a long way, don’t it?

    Heh. I still tell stories to the young-uns of the Jawa costume here. Still my favorite costume Bloody hell that thing was hot, tho. I still like the Lawrence of Arabia costume I wore to a party as a teen, and not a single person at the party (parents included) knew who he (Lawrence) was. Glad I only dated the girl who was hosting the party for a short time.

    Last year Alex went as Alex Rodriguez. I KNOW he is a small, Aryan-blonde white boy, but we HAD THE JERSEY.
    And I’m lazy.

    My wife sews all my girl’s halloween dresses. My youngest still wears her Cinderella dress from last year (wearing it today in fact). My oldest hit a good growth spurt and only barely fits into her Belle dress.
    I used to do some dimply moulage make up effects. Now that I have a boy I can practice that stuff again in a couple of years.

  7. Cullen says:

    Talk about the fingers getting away from you … I used to do some simple moulage …

  8. (And I had such a query about the origins of ‘dimply‘ moulage. Sounds like a stripper’s name or something. Rats!)
    And A-Rod rocks, so I don’t see a problem Lisa!
    I did Bingley up a good one once, too, for an Ides of March costume/birthday party we were having. He went as the Pharoah’s representative in Rome. Did up the whole linen dress thing out of bleached muslim, then built him one of those tall headpieces out of a Quaker oatmeal box, with attached aluminum foil cobra and vulture. (I painted them with nail polish, so they looked like enameled precious metal, and the cobra got these bitchin’ glittery ruby eye crystals.)
    I realized years later we’d simply catered to his well established opinion of himself and had been, in fact, enablers. Paid for it ever since.

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    Well established by copious evidence, I might add.

    You should have seen some of Daughter Number Two’s costumes once she got old enough to make her own (this was when she started doing it for the local Food Bank, not for her own sweet tooth).
    One year she went as a pirate ship (hull, sails, Jolly Roger, the whole bit). One year it was as a tombstone.

  11. Oh my God, she’s a sister spirit for sure!!

    NEVER have I used store costumes for child. Last year put together a great gypsy costume for 3 year old niece, she looked like she belonged on the great grandmother’s horse drawn wagon. Sister in law brings her by on Halloween in the pictured Stitch costume. Some people just don’t get the holiday
