Costumes are completed! We went out last night to show them off. Park View Elementary had their annual Trunk or Treat. Last year I had a very upset little girl because her brother had so many people interested in his costume but not hers. She asked why everyone wanted just his picture. I told her that “while you are a very pretty witch, Zack’s costume is unique and people were just excited to see something different.” So when it came time to chose a costume this year, Maddie wanted unique! Zack knew immediately he wanted to be a wrestler. He really wanted to go as Ric Flair and I did my costume research I saw that Ric only entered the arena in a feather boa robe and his wrestling undies. I didn’t want people to think that he was trying to dress up like an old lady with a robe, so we talked him into amore distinguishable wrestler based on clothes. We gave options and he chose Macho Man Randy Savage. Maddie took a lot longer to come up with her costume. She wanted unique. So we researched and researched and finally came across something back in Late August that she was happy with. Her original concept was a weeping angel from Dr. Who, but we didn’t want scary angel, so we changed it to a Guardian Angel Statue. However, if you ask Maddie what she is, she will simply just say an angel statue.
Last night they both were a huge hit!! We had several people asking to get both their pictures. We had a cop stop Zack so he could get his picture taken with him. We had several teachers say that they both were amazing. One of the teachers said “I didn’t think you could top last years, but you did it”. We also ended up getting lots of praises about how beautiful or how cool their costumes were.
