My boys start thinking of what they want to be for Halloween usually back at the end of August. Between then and Halloween, They will pick something new every other day it seems. Gaelan first decided he wanted to be a gargoyle. I found a great one to make at Family Fun. Definately different, right?
I have to say I was not thrilled with this selection. I was already envisioning....
Mom, I am hot, I can't carry my bucket, I can't see, etc. You sense all that too right?
Then he decided he would be a King Tut Mummy. This is a beautiful costume.
But once again, I kept thinking.... this mask is beautiful, will be fun to make not so much fun having him wear it all night. So I started my motherly manipulation and I talked him into the coolest, easiest costume. No mask, nothing too hot or bulky. He is going to be a ghostbuster! I may even have my ipod set on the theme song all night just for effects while I walk him around. Hee-hee!
Ghavin is such a pratical child, he originally chose this alien costume which I love the concept. It is way cool. I am sure he would get lots of stares.
He however decided it would be too uncomfortable all night so he opted to dress up as Sherlock Holmes. He has been reading the book and just out of the blue announced this past week what he will be. Now they can not change their minds anymore because the fabric is bought, props are bought as of today. They have to stick with this. As a matter of fact, I really need to start sewing before they change their minds. *LOL*
