Cut to this year and my husband is out of town for the two and a half weeks before Halloween. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. It also weakens your resistance to costumes. Next thing I know he wants hit a costume store on the way home from the airport. Come again? Who are you and what did you do with my costume minimalist?
Darth's mask had sound effects. A better parent would have humorous video to prove it. I suck so all I have is this photo of Darth trying to use the power of the dark side to get me to hurry up and let him trick or treat:.
/div> Leia's costume came with a cheap rug of a wig but for a change his sister's long and easily tangled brown hair finally came in handy. She was amazed that everyone knew exactly who she was. How do you explain "iconic" to a nine year old?
And for anyone dying of curiosity to witness the madness in previous years:
2004 - Wizard of Oz
2005 - 50's girl (Still looking for a hard copy photo to scan)
2006 - Barnyard
2008 - It's Raining Cats and Dogs
2009 - Football game
2010 - Under the Sea
2011 - Books
I have looked everywhere and can't seem to find a photo to save my life. Everyone was a character from a different book. We had a fairy from Rainbow Magic (specifically Destiny the Rock Star Fairy), Iron Man, the Cat in the Hat, Pippi Longstocking (complete with braids sticking out to the side courtesy of wire hangers inside the braids).
