now with september outta the way, i warmly welcome october.
october = halloween
halloween = best holiday of the year (maybe only second to independence day)
love halloween. love dressing up. love haunted houses. love carving pumpkins. love trick-or-treaters. love parties...
i LOVE parties...
love dancing at parties, party games, party favors, a house full of great company, awesome decorations, festive music and activities... yep, i'm a huge, shameless loser. fox might hate me because of this when he's older, but it's a risk i'm willing to take. someday when i live in one place for more than 3 months at a time, i'm going to throw lavish halloween parties. and new years parties. why don't adults have more parties? anyway. i usually have a plan months in advance for my costume, but this year i've been consumed with narrowing the possibilities for fox's first-ever ensemble. i've got a couple of ideas...
1. the luchador. as evidenced by a few posts back, we've already got the mask, i'd just need to fashion a fetching bodysuit of sorts, which makes me anxiously anticipate our imminent return to the big D and back into the tender loving arms of my sewing machine.
2. the mexican (not exactly PC, but i feel because i've lived here i now have some sort of right or justification, plus it just has extreme entertainment potential). also as evidenced by a few posts back, we've purchased fox a wee poncho... i'm envisioning a sombrero, a fake mustache and a burrow (saddle-up, gunth).
3. peter pan. i don't have anything yet for this costume (again, that sewing machine doesn't know what it's got coming to it), but i've got this picture in my head that integrates green tights into the ensemble, and i don't know about you, but something about seeing a chubby kid in wee green tights just warms my black little heart.
thoughts? where in the world do i find infant-sized (well, plus-size infant-sized) green tights?
