I knew I needed an alternative costume for one of the Halloween celebrations we were attending (Mitt Zombie is a bit politically charged right now, and confusing because I won’t tell people whether it’s me advocating for him or having some fun with his name ) and I had planned to just send T1 out as a zombie. The day before Halloween I was in Costco and saw that they had fireman raincoats and boots (two things that T1 needs anyway). I stopped in to Goodwill and snagged a fireman hat for $1.50. Guess that’s one of the benefits of cliche costumes, secondhand stuff is easy to find. Will keep this in mind for the future.
T1 as a Fireman.
I like dressing up, but didn’t have any ideas until I spotted this red wig sitting next to the fireman hat. I thought I could probably still squeeze into this dress (just barely) and thus I went as Fire. Although the boy we went trick-or-treating said I looked like a clown. Should have looked for a red nose I guess?
Oh to be one of those women who just paints their belly and sticks it out of their shirt. Yeah, that’s not going to work for me.
A big thank you to our hosts for the night. Ninja, Fireman, Cinderella.
I think by next year he’ll be ready to tell me what he wants to be. It will be so fun to design a family costume that centers around his preference!
