mama’s costume, part uno

I’m laying odds that someday my ungrateful child will drop me off at a substandard nursing home without a backward glance.

And golly, do I love me some Halloween. Always have.

So I’m making the best of these two definitives by whipping myself up a costume so that I can actively accompany the boy this year when he trick-or-treats.

If I’m still feeling motivated once I’ve finished my outfit, I’ll make one for Todd, too.

Logan will probably be delighted. But in 10 years when I whip out the pictures, that delight will be replaced by horror and mortification.

As a result, I’ll be doing him a favor. He won’t feel one bit guilty about taking advantage of the two-for-one special when he parks us at the Heaven Bound Nursing Facility.

This weekend, I finished the first piece of my costume. Can you guess what the finished product’s going to be?


Heck, no, I’m not going to model them for you. Actually, I tried, but in the picture, it’s hard to tell where the bloomers stop and my white, spindly legs begin.

  1. OMG are you going to be raggedy Ann? Or maybe a Southern Bell.. I can’t wait.. You are sooo talented!

  2. Well, since your son is going as Mickey I will guess that you are going as Goofy! I would like to see Todd dressed as Donald. He has the sailor suit for it.

  3. Hee hee! Actually, Logan said he wanted me to make a Pluto costume for his papa. There’s no way I’m buying all that tan fur; he can just wear Augie’s collar and we’ll call it a day.

  4. OMG I did not even think about that.. So you are going to be Goofy.. How cute.. I can’t wait to see you all dressed up…

  5. No, not Goofy…not quite tall enough. But I’ll be in the same family assuming these characters are supposed to be related.

  6. Minnie Mouse or Daisy??? You need to come up with something and start an etsy shop! mad sewing skills;)
