The boys and I went to a Halloween Party over the weekend so I thought I’d share our costumes!
My first matey here is a swashbuckling pirate, as I revealed in my former sneak peek. Me? I’m a giant jellyfish! Clear umbrella, bubble wrap and a little sheer curtain fabric. Easy! Plus if it rains on Halloween night I’ll be good to go.
This sorry young man has lost his head. (I think he may have laughed it off.) He got the idea from the Klutz Encyclopedia of Immaturity, which I highly recommend for anyone, really. We put it together with some cardboard, clothing from our closets and a shirt from the thrift store. He was a hit! The only downside was eating, playing, and anything else that required the use of his hands. Not sure how the trick-or-treating will happen.
We had a great time at the party, but I do have to tell you…I was the only adult in a costume. Not even the host and hostess (who’ve dressed up in the past). Really? Really. Not one other adult. Afterward, in response to the lack of dressed-up grown-ups, my little scallywag said, “I’m glad MY mom is fun!” And I’m glad he appreciates me!
Annabelle was a jellyfish along those lines a couple of years ago, and we ended up adding a little string of battery powered Christmas lights up under the umbrella. You would not believe the joy this gave to our neighborhood on Halloween night.
I’m still trying to figure out where his arms are in that headless costume!?!? So clever!

that headless costume is excellent!!!!
A very good idea, your jellyfish costume… funny, simple and beautiful!
