Simply fabric glue and/or stitch the felt shrimp and fake grass garnish onto a onesie, wrap some black velvet trim around the belly for seaweed, and use neon green and peach felt for the ginger and wasabi. I also made a ginger/wasabi barette, and stuck chopsticks through her hair. After the fact, I realized I should have also decorated a Chinese takeout box for her to put her candy in! Someone else can steal that genius idea :)
Joe and I threw our costumes together literally minutes before we had to walk out the door. I put on a striped dress, made a prisoner badge ("g-dg-d2shus" = goody goody two shoes) and whipped up this crazy jailbird hat (which I secretly want to wear again some way, some how.) I guess I'm supposed to be a glamorous prisoner?
Joe borrowed my wig, jacket and scarf and went as an 80's glam rock drummer.
I told her if she gave me all her candy, she could have a piece of chocolate covered banana. She took me up on that. My friends were laughing at how easy the trade was. (Next year she might put up a little more resistance once she actually knows what candy is.)
Joe and I felt sooooooo grown-up taking our child trick-or-treating. Parenthood is still surreal. How have us goons been entrusted with raising a toddler?
Already looking forward to next Halloween!!! How was your's?
