Will and I realized yesterday that HOLY COW IT IS AUGUST which means there is LESS THAN THREE MONTHS to go until Halloween, the greatest holiday ever. As usual I am fraught with anguish over choosing the perfect costumes for the family. And today I had an idea! It means yet another year of not making Sam dress up as Robin Hood (I’ve wanted to do that since he was born and for heaven’s sake why don’t I just make him the costume for the dress-up box?) but that is okay because he will FLIP OUT.
I am going to make Sam a Batman costume and Grace a Superman/Supergirl costume. BUT WHICH ONE? I figure I’ll knit woolies as the bottom half of her costume. I can do longies to look like Superman’s costume (yellow ribbing, red–um–crotch, blue legs, and red cuffs) or I can do a Supergirl skirty (yellow ribbing, red skirt, blue underpants).
On the one hand, skirty. DUH. On the other hand, autumn. Even in Los Angeles, longies would be super-practical. What do you thiiiiiiink?
And! I get to sew capes for both kids! YAY!!!
Incidentally, you should know that I do have a back-up plan:
Sam’s cape will even cross over.
