So, what are you planning on being for Halloween? Are you dressing up for work or school or are you only getting dressed up on Halloween?
Yesterday my wife and I spent some time in Hancock Fabrics looking at patterns for costumes. She typically won't purchase costumes and prefers to make them. The quality is so much better and since she's got the sewing skill set, why not? Part of our family is "themed" - the baby girl will be Tinkerbell, my boy will be Peter Pan and my oldest girl will be Wendy. My son has been telling everyone that I'm going to be Captain Hook, but I don't really want to be Hook. When looking at patterns yesterday we figured we'd need SO much to make a Hook costume that it could cost upwards of $200+ just to get the jacket right. That's some serious dough for something I have no interest in being. So it looks like my wife and I will be vampires. I always prefer being a vampire at Halloween. It is always my go to creature.
While we were out shopping yesterday I picked up a vampire costume for my son. I couldn't resist. He spent the evening running around the house claiming to be a vampire. It could take some doing to get him into his Peter Pan costume.
I'm sure he'll be like is Daddy...creatures of the night are much more fun.
Hopefully they won't mess with my Lasik surgery I had. My eye doctor is going to check on me to make sure I'm good to wear them for an extended period of time.
