i'm really thrilled that kristi opened up the halloween costume discussion now, because this topic came up in my house earlier this week. (it's never too early to discuss halloween costumes, is it??)
one of my very first posts was about how much fun i have making jack's halloween costumes. we had a tradition in my house, when i was little, of making our costumes. this is a tradition i have lovingly carried on.
just the other night, jack announced that he wanted to be a storm trooper for halloween. my mind began racing immediately: which kind of storm trooper? *original* storm trooper from episodes IV, V or VI. or a *new* storm trooper from episodes I, II or III???
and the challenge of making something with a hard shell, smooth sides? i sew, for goodness sakes. but this could prove to be a great challenge.
and then? and then, he said, "and i want to buy it at the store. so that it won't be itchy."
a store-bought costume?!? it's not even in my vernacular!
i'll keep you posted.
