Halloween Haiku: Family Favorite #6
Costume Idea: Costume Evolution
As part of our “year of the fancy costumes” we made a dinosaur/alligator costume for Steven out of paper bags, a shoe box and paint. He shed everything but the hat before I had a chance to take a picture.
However, I found the original instructions with a picture in my file. Isn’t that darling? Our version was even better, if I do say so myself. So, we carefully packed it away and he wore it again the next year. And once again I didn’t take a picture.
I finally remembered to take a picture the next year when we transformed it from an alligator into Charizard!
Many, many years later, the costume made an appearance for Homecoming Week at the high school. Isn’t it wonderful when you can reuse something over and over and over? We never would have thought we’d get so much use and enjoyment from a simple paper bag!
