Halloween costume construction project


Colossal Red Dragon

Today in Joann Fabrics I met this chick buying yellow fabric. Her kid was kicking around the candy aisle wearing yellow crocs and a yellow shirt. He had demanded a “Yellow Shark” costume. I felt her pain. Me, I have to construct a red dragon outfit.

My local Moms’ Club came through – I asked where to buy a red hooded sweatshirt, and got an immediate answer that they were $6.00 at Mervyn’s. It was true! So, 6 bucks, and 5 more for red sparkly pipe cleaners, red glitter glue, and some sheets of felt. I think that should do it for the costume. When I make it, I’ll take pictures.

Oh, and I’m supposed to dress myself as “a knight, a lady knight, like Xena Warrior Princess.” I’m not sure about that. I was picturing myself as a much butcher knight.

Then today someone on the list asked how to do a sequoia tree costume. I was imagining how much fun that could be with brown pipe cleaners and short green fringe. And some real sequoia pine cones – they’re all over my neighborhood.

Y’all didn’t know I was so crafty, did you?

    She's crafty, she's just my type.I'm making costumes this year, too. It's tough tracking down what you think will be simple to find. Did you know that gray long johns don't seem to exist this season? Looking forward to a picture of you two in your costumes!
