Daughter informed me she is going as Guy Fieri for Halloween this year. She showed me a trial run, and she somehow, with her long brown tresses, got a bleached blonde, sticking straight up, head of hair complete with head band and goatee. Gone are the days when she wanted to be a princess or a fairy.
In my grad school days I once had to accompany a distraught client to the ER on Halloween. The clinic tracked me down at a costume party where I had dressed like an enormous strawberry. (I sewed the costume myself). I showed up at the hospital in costume. I was lucky they didn’t hospitalized me instead of the client!
I used to sew elaborate costumes for our children, and I will be quite ready to sew for my grandson in the future. This year is a not the best for fun costumes, although I bet he would make a pretty cute Guy Fieri.
What are some of your favorite costume memories, Halloween or otherwise?
