A few weeks ago EZ decided he wanted to be Superman for Halloween.
“…but I want my cape to be pink and purple.”
Okay, no problem. While I knew my own sewing skills weren’t up to the task, I had a feeling that either etsy or my mom would be able to help us out.
Then, only a few days after his announcement he changed his mind.
“I want to be Superman, but with a red cape.”
Again, not a problem, and a good thing that I hadn’t actually done much of anything in the way of procuring a pink and purple cape.
3 cheers for lazy parenting!
Then, this past week he decided that he wants to be Superman as a pirate. He’ll wear a Superman outfit, but also have a hook hand, eyepatch and possibly a pirate’s hat as well.
It’s still another whole month until Halloween. I have to figure that EZ will end up changing his mind another 15 times between now and then. Who knows, perhaps he actually will want to be Superman dressed as a pirate, or maybe he’ll want to be something else that he decides upon at the last minute, resulting in either the cheesiest of homemade costumes or a mad dash to whatever store has anything left in the Halloween aisle.
Thankfully, our dress up bin is pretty varied, and if worse comes to worse, I think a pink headband of mine and an old baby blanket might even suffice.
As for me? I had a vision of all three of us going as characters from the game Candy Land, but nobody else seemed into it, so mostly likely it will be light up bunny ears…again.
Anyone else definitely
maybe sort not at all know what they (or the kids) are going to be for Halloween this year? Hit me with your costumespiration!
