we are getting some questions about this year's family costume plan. to be honest, i had sort of hoped that everyone had just forgotten we ever did that these past 4 years so that we'd be off the hook this year and could just dress the kids up in store-bought whatever. and then jesse and i could for once look like normal, sane human adults at the church trunk-or-treat fall festival event we always attend.
no such luck. i guess i was delusional to think i could ever in my life dress up like a 5'7 bottle of soy sauce and that anyone would forget it. as much as i was feeling uninspired and overwhelmed as recently as yesterday about this year's halloween getups, i am glad my friends prompted/pressured me because we got an thunderbolt idea last night that the kids were excited about, that is mildly unique and that could be DIY'd on the cheap and with my limited tailoring skills.
today we hit up goodwill for some elements we didnt already own. this outing culminated in the most epic judah meltdown in the history of judah.--the boy AND the kingdom--which is saying a lot about how bad today was for the boy, because whoa-golly the kingdom really knew how to melt down, yall. we brought our bounty home and i got sewing.
in the interest of fun, and to celebrate me actually planning and working ahead of october 31st, i thought i'd give yall a little sneaky peeky of one element from one family member's costume to see if anyone can pull off a super-sleuthing and guess our ensemble. last time i did this guessing game was in 2009 for sushi fam and despite my teaser pics being SO obscure, my buddy (and HUGE encourager!) alicia nailed it via her hubby's guess. so i am going to try to be extra withholding (i think!) this time so that i dont feel dumb when the first person nails it.
here's your one hint (not telling who this is for).
alright so what is this? and what costume is it a part of? and what does that make the other 3 costumes in the family? anyone who nails all 4 of our 10/31 identities based on this photo wins 8 stanley nickels!
