My Lazy Halloween Costume
I went to a family-friendly party the night before Halloween. We knew the majority of families through my ten year old step-son’s Cub Scout troop. I didn’t have a costume prepared, so I cobbled together something from around the house. Here is the result: Lord Vader getting ready for night-night…
I’m holding a security blanket (a Star Wars blanket) and a stuffed animal (a Clone Trooper beanie-baby). While those were nice touches, I really think the fuzzy pink slippers are what sell it.
Maybe it’s just a parent thing, but the whole “night-night” concept is a frequent topic of discussion. Regardless, my fellow suburbia parents (norms, muggles, mundanes, or whatever you want to call them) didn’t really get my sense of humor.
