Last weekend, we went to a library fundraiser Halloween Party. Ben and I made our own costumes, with some help from the internet. We chose to be the Mad Hatter and the March Hare from Alice in Wonderland.
I made Ben’s vest and ears. He also had a little fuzzy bunny tail as well. Ben helped me do the hat and I made the bow tie to match.
We ended up winning the Best Costume award which is a bedazzled skull head on a rather large and ancient looking book. The trophy gets to live with us for a year, then next year, goes to the next recipient of the “Best Costume.”
I’m still working on Miss R’s costume. She wants to be a red wolf. We read a book where a little princess is trapped in a tower and is given a box of wool and knitting needles. She knits herself a wolf costume and turns into the Red Wolf. She escapes the tower and runs around the town until she catches the yarn on a tree branch and unravels her outfit. It is exactly my kind of book
Edit: The book is called “The Red Wolf” by Margaret Shannon
