After my post about Reese’s Halloween I got a few requests to see my costume-making attempts. It was a brief period, a decade ago, I lost my mind and tried to craft.
The first Halloween costumes weren’t that bad. Taryn and John were Adam and Eve. I hot glued some leaves onto long john pajamas.
I don’t keep the kids in cages on Halloween anymore.
The next year was the kids were miserable. They were Peas & Carrots. Get it?
Neither did anyone else.
The next year we added my a friend to the mix and dressed them as the Three Stooges. I thought it was pretty awesome. The kids did not, mostly because they had never heard of the Stooges.
That was the end of costume-making for me. From then on it was store-bought costumes only. I’m not ashamed of it. Besides, tonight we trick-or-treated with Megan and Brooke. They made costumes. Megan made hers out of grocery bags and duct tape. Last night. I could have the rest of my life and I couldn’t make something like this.
I failed at those bag costumes last year, she showed me up then too. Click here to see it.
Brooke, who is well-known for her crafting skills, made costumes for her whole family.
It’s like they’re trying to make me feel bad about myself.
It worked. I’ll never make a costume again. Ever.
