Halloween that is! lol!
So once again I had a brilliant idea for me and the nugget's costumes and once again, I've come up with other plans. The original plan was that we would be the twins from The Shining. Magnificent, I know. But it won't make sense when I'm out with my friends, without her. I'd have to be some kind of evil Alice and I can't figure out a way to make her gruesome enough. (Ok, I can think of ways to make Alice pretty gruesome, but it made me think of other ideas). So I thought of some others and need opinions....
I totally understand that it's June. Which means I only have 4 months to figure it all out. Time is ticking away!!
So here's some other ideas, tell me if one jumps out at you that sounds just as fantastical as The Shining twins....
Red Riding Hood and the Wolf (which I had thought of last year but wolf costumes sold out and I didn't want my kid to disappear in a sea of wolves)
Cowgirl and Indian
Queen of Hearts and Alice
The Grady Girls (twins from the shining which I had to throw in the mix. Although I'm not entirely sure how that would go over trick or treating... Would I get swarmmed by a mob of cranky moms because I dressed my 4 year old as my axed to death twin or would they understand the awesomeness of it and give her extra candy?)
I had thought Pocahontas and John Smith would be lovely and I could be some amazingly gorey soldier alone, but alas, soldier costumes don't really come in female sizes and look so sadly cheap.
