Halloween Costumes


Dear House of Bead-

The time is nigh at hand where we are faced with the Halloween costume dilemma. To avoid the embarrassment of past years- i.e. the recycling year- and to shut down terrible ideas early on- i.e. Pokemon characters, I suggest we begin to think of costume ideas right now. That way we will not wander around with recycling bags full of newspaper and our faces painted bright blue, and we can try to ask Bonnie's mother very politely to make costumes for us. That means that once we have an idea- our work may be nil. [If this is a problem with Bonnie's mother, maybe for Halloween we can all be Ashton's bridesmaids and kill two birds with one stone.]
Ideas?

I found this terrible website where I typed in "group costumes." These are a few of the gems I found:

  • toilet, toilet paper and plunger (recycle Scott's costume from last year?)
  • Traffic Light, Speed Bump, Road, and Road Kill (poor sucker who is stuck with trying to come up with a costume for a speed bump)
  • Labyrinth Characters (Cam can be David Bowie again?)
  • Jon and Kate Gosselin Plus 8 (we quickly find 8 children that we can use as props)
  • Hannah Montana Characters (not such a bad idea- we can carry around a ghetto blaster and play Party in the USA all night long because the DJ never will...)
  • Fruit of the Loom Characters (I don't understand.)
  • Angelina Jolie's Kids (another terrible idea)

We need help.

I will start brainstorming for you. You know I have good ideas. The evidence is abundant, year after year. Unfortunately, my toilet is in a landfill somewhere. Also, styrofoam is nearly impossible to clean up, so making a new one should be avoided at all costs.
