Over the years, I love making the Halloween costumes for my kids. My 11 year old son decided he wanted to be a Beatle from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. So I made him the costume. We bought a woman's pantsuit at the thrift store and I added fringe, roping, and some embellishments. He added the John Lennon type glasses. He wore it all day at school and out getting candy this afternoon and evening. He loved it.
Bratcat has a Halloween party to go to this Saturday. She plans on wearing a tiara and a pageant sash that says "Miss Diagnosed". We're trying to figure out a way to use toilet paper as the sash without it ripping.
