But this year her best friend and friend's family have invited us all to a party and her to a sleepover this weekend. Yep, a Halloween party...with costumes. She wants desperately to go, so we have been wracking our brains to develop costumes that use everyday items in a creative way.
Dear daughter wants to be a Goth. Great...that really makes me happy...not! We have settled on her being a modified Goth. I'll let you know how that works out.
I came up with several ideas: Flo the insurance lady, hippy, mother earth and finally decided to be a sort of tree.
|My Costume. Isn't It Realistic?|
Picture this: Brown Birkies, brown pants, brown shirt, silk leaves from Michael's applied to neck and head, then green eye shadow on eyes. Finish off my face using a leaf stencil and green eye shadow to paint on a couple of leaves. I'll send pictures your way after this weekend.
Don't know what my husband is thinking about being. Maybe he has an old Post Office uniform lying around. I wonder if my daughter would consider being a tree sprout.
Many Christians don't participate in Halloween at all and that is a personal choice that each person must make. As for myself, I prefer to avoid frightening, occult, witch, demon, devil images. Trees are good. God made trees. That's my personal choice.
