I have been planning the kidlets’ Halloween costumes for MONTHS — deciding way back in FEBRUARY that we would play with a Dr. Seuss costume theme. Or, more specifically . . . Barney Kneeknuckles (who will be a whopping 2.5 months at Halloween) will be the Cat in the Hat and the two older Kidlets will be Thing 1 and Thing 2.
Last year, for the Little Lady and Mr. Boy, I made the majority of their costumes — they were supposed to be Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy (from a children’s book series), but everyone thought Mr. Boy was a GIRL bumblebee! Even with the ‘stache we drew on his face, we still heard (over and over), “What a cute little girl!”
(grumble, grumble, grumble)
With three costumes on the docket this Halloween, I have been utilizing Pinterest (the ultimate time-waster) to find tips, tricks and tutorials for Dr. Seuss costumes. I picked up all of my supplies this weekend … now just to make everything!
