From this, to:
A thrift shop, a glue gun and some felt. That's all C's costume took to make this year. We have delved into the world of Pokemon. That's all I really have to say. I have not learned to play with the cards yet and I'm pretty sure at this point, C and his friend are still slightly making it up. We do have a cool babysitter that knows all about it and we did discover that for a limited time, they were for sale at the dollar store and not just the comic book store (although we did have a thrifty delight at the comic book store one day and took a huge stack of less than better cards for $4).
Three things I learned about Pokemon in making this costume:
1. There are several versions. This one above is from the Diamond and Pearl (no clue what that means).
2. The girls are scandily clad. This is only important for me and how cold I will be dressed up as Dawn Halloween night. She's the girl in the pink mini skirt featured above.
3. Any costume can be a slutty costume. Still getting over the Slutty Pikachu we discovered when researching the costumes.
So what are you all dressing up for on Halloween? I have a less slutty costume lined up for work that I'm pulling out of my reservoir! Why do I love dressing up and Halloween so much?!?
