Costume Countdown.

Has your child decided what they want to be for Halloween yet?
I thought mine had. For weeks he's been telling me he wants to be a ghost.

That is until this weekend,
now he says he can't decide what to be.
Silly me, I asked him what his choices were and now he thinks he might want to be a frog.

That's not all, he also thought he might want to be a circle (it's his favorite shape).
I told him he has to make up his mind soon because I need to have time to put it together.
At this point I'm pushing for the ghost, I don't have the foggiest idea how to make him a circle!
I think there's a hula hoop in the garage, maybe I can do something with that.

There is of course the possibility that I will have a repeat of last year, when I spent a week making bluebird wings for his bluebird costume.

Then on Halloween he refused to wear it!
So now the wings hang on his bedroom wall.
They do make an awesome wall decoration though.

a ghost definitly would be easy to make! lol a circle though, wow got me too! unless you make him like bubble boy! that was in that big ol clear bubble ball? but i guess thats more a ball then a circle.

Those are great wings! My daughter did the exact same thing to me with a bat costume I made two years ago. This year we've gone from ghost to turtle to spy. We'll see on October 31st what I have to whip up!

Oh - I so understand what you are going through. My youngest has wanted to everything from a ghost to a tree to a gopher (gopher!?!) to a pirate to a fireman...I stopped him there. He's 3 - he won't remember.

Looking forward to seeing what yours chose.
