My friend Sue sent me this picture about a week ago and I couldn't get over the awesomeness. Her granddaughter, Gracie, wanted to be Strawberry Shortcake for Halloween. Look how happy she is with her grandma-made felted hat. Do you remember Strawberry Shortcake? From the 80s?
If that wasn't enough, Sue then made the SS dress. (I thought, at first, that it was a Strawberry-Shortcake-Joins-the-Brownies costume. :) )
Sue sent me these pics this morning. I am in love with the whole look!
This is probably the only kid in the U.S. wearing, for Halloween, a custom made felted hat worth $200 retail!
Sue didn't make her grandson's costume, but I thought that Jonah's mad scientist was fabulous. It looks like his goggles are made with painted eggshells, probably looted from the Easter decorations. Paired with a lab coat, and some hair gel, what a brilliant, easy, and effective costume.
Last, but not least, little brother Crosby is wearing a purchased costume and looking completely adorable. (All of these pics are posted with mom's permission.)
Excuse me while I go remind myself that my ovaries are closed for business.
This is how I'm going to the grocery store today. Do you think anyone will notice my monster companion?
I bought these glasses in the Castro and they fit right over my regular glasses.
