This morning, there was a nice warm breeze coming through the 'north' window in the kitchen. Now, a much cooler wind, gusting at times, coming through the 'west' windows. Very 'Octoberish' outside, for sure!
I finally heard back from Public Works...not a very satisfying conversation...just 'an assurance' that the crew will be told to be 'more careful'. Pthhhh! I'm not laying any bets.
Will be taking the costume pieces to the neighbor for the first fitting today. I won't know where to place the tentacles until it's on her. They came out fantastic! Black with a purple underside, stuffed with plastic grocery bags, stitched strategically to 'curl' them and rows of suction cups (cut from a bath mat) glued to each side. I also picked up a green feather boa as a 'seaweed' shawl! Hair and make up will wait for party day. Oh, and I still have to locate the necklace!
For my grandson, I picked up the material for the 'coat' and multi colored electrical tape to do the designs on it. Unfortunately, I threw out my old curtain rods...one would have made a good 'staff' for him. Guess I'll have to use a broom handle and wrap it with duct tape.
'Gloomy' days like this, just before Halloween, are perfect for creating costumes!
