Happy Halloween from my little Demon!

This year the kiddo didn’t go with a handmade costume. And it totally makes me sad! I hear other parents cheering when they don’t have to make a costume, but not me. It makes me sad!

Last year he wasn’t going to have a handmade costume either and it made me sad then, too! Last year he was going to be Harry Potter. We had the whole costume! But he got so sick we had to call off all the Halloween festivities that we typically do. And no trick or treating. So sad…

He did get to wear his costume when we went to see Harry Potter at the Seattle Symphony. So this year he was going to be Harry Potter for sure for Halloween! No getting sick!

That is until we went to Value Village….

He picked out a costume, a mask and this scary pitchfork thing… Being the mom that I am, I kept saying ‘No…. I don’t know….’ The kiddo kept trying! Then he said, It is creative. I didn’t just pick out an already made costume. I’m picking different pieces and putting them together to be my own costume!’ And then Dad reminded me that it’s his costume not mine and he can pick his own. Ok, fine. Y’all, got me! How can I say no to those two arguments???

What about a cute bear costume? um, no, mom….

What about this used costume? By Dad’s expression, you can probably tell that that didn’t work! To get the exact thing he wanted and that fit, we had to go new. We could have gone used and altered it, but when they had the exact ‘cape’ he wanted in the exactly right size for only a couple more dollars…. We went new. And he’s super excited!

We went to our neighborhood cemetery for the photo shoot. It’s an odd cemetery with not a lot of people resting there. I should find out the story behind it. Either way, it made for some kinda creepy photos!

What do you prefer? Handmade, store bought completely put together or store bought mix and match?

  1. Halloween teaches youth and parents. Parents, when children are young, have a big say in what costume is worn. As the child grows, he becomes a vote in the Halloween costume. It is a choice he will have to live with and one he will learn from. As adults we want them to be small forever, but this is an indication that he is growing up. Sad, a little….but it sounds like your values are resonating in with the creativity of all the different items. Embrace this time, one day it will not make you sad. :). It may lead to costumes for Grandchildren, which wil make you smile 10 ties as wide!

    Of course I always preferred home made to but you can’t beat Max’s argument! 😉

  3. My preference depends if I have to actually make the costume. My kids get to choose from an assortment of garage sale finds mostly. I do love your husband’s expression. Here’s to a healthy Halloween!
