After a week of foraging for materials, three days of sewing and cursing and sewing and hair-pulling and one night of hot gluing, Jude's Halloween costume finally became a reality. Without further ado, I present for you, The Giant, Ink-Squirting Squid...
Pretty cool, right?! I was very proud. I don't know if you can tell in the video, but the arms and tentacles are lined with suction cups that I cut off a rubber bathtub mat. The "ink" is black Silly String. He's a little bit of a ham (can't imagine where he gets it) and went to town squirting that stuff. I'm not sure what the janitor of his school had to deal with in the aftermath. Sorry about that.
Oh, and only once did I overhear Jude asking someone to please not step on his testicles.
Anyway, as usual, Jude's tiny Catholic school went insane over Halloween. Interestingly, for the last four years, I would have said they went INSANE. But this year was just insane. Just not quite as inspired as usual. Not sure why. If you're interested, previous Halloween INSANITY is written about here and here and here (you should actually check them out to get ideas for next year!). But even though it was a slightly less over-the-top than past years, it was still pretty outrageous, remember it's a city filled with creative types. So here are my favorites of the year...
But my very favorite costumes of all, weren't any of the kids, but two of my favorite moms...
God, I love our weird school.
I'm already thinking ahead to next year. What do you think about the kid going as Dumbledora the Explorer?
