The hardest part of Henry's costume was finding a white, hooded sweatshirt that fit him. I tried Amazon, Hanes.com, and a few other online retailers. I finally stumbled across one at Roses' and snatched it up. The other pieces I made from felt and a pipe cleaner on his head for hair. When I started, I couldn't find any black felt, so on the way back from Julie's house, I stopped at Michael's.
Benjamin had fallen asleep in the van, so I sent Frances in with a few dollars and instructions on how to find the black felt and pay for it. Her first solo shopping trip was a resounding success and she was very proud of herself.
Benjamin's costume was the easiest since he just wanted to wear the same costume he had last year. It was this decision that helped me pick my costume. Wyldstyle popped into my head as something I could do pretty easily, so that's what I went with. I tried convincing Ken to dress up as Emmett, but he kept putting it off. I went to work Friday morning in my costume and assumed Ken would just go as himself.
Of course, I got home from work to find him in an orange construction vest and cargo pants. I covered a cracker box in red material and attached it to his back as the piece of resistance. It was perfect!
My favorite part of Halloween was that Frances and Henry told Benjamin that Batman was Wyldstyle's boyfriend, so he spent the week leading up to Halloween calling me "babe" and "girlfriend." I couldn't bear to remind him that they broke up by the end of the movie!
How was your Halloween?
