wore some (pretty sweet) costumes . . .
(Russell costume: Idea came from my friend, Danniey, who is the original Russell costume maker and let me borrow the hat, flag, merit badge sash, and orange scarf for Boybee's outfit. Clothes were already on hand. Backpack is one I repurposed out of a purse from Goodwill with Dollar Store dog leash sewn on to hold carabiners.
Carl costume: Coat and wig from Goodwill, shirt and pants we had on hand, glasses from Target, and bow tie made from this tutorial, though my pieces were bigger to make it chunky.
Kevin bird costume: Tutu I made from this tutorial with yellow, orange, blue, purple, red, and hot pink tulle. Shirt and pants on hand. Bird head I made by drawing on posterboard with markers, mirror imaging each piece so it was the same on the other side, then attaching pipe cleaners to each head feather and each side of the face. Ended by wrapping pipe cleaners around a head band.)
spent time with people we love . . .
and did a few other wild and kooky things . . .
October was good to us.
