I have another Halloween post after this one. This year it seem as though there has been more Halloween celebration than any prior year.
A friend of ours had a Halloween Party and she wanted everyone to get dressed up. I have not dressed up in many, years. It was fun going and seeing all the different costumes everyone came up with. The Cisco Kid went as a police officer. The Chief went as a Farmer. I wanted to match him so I went as a Scare Crow. It was an easy costume for the Chief. All he needed was a plaid shirt and suspenders. I have never bought a costume. I have always made my own. I think it stems from when I was a little girl and my mother would make all our costumes from scratch. This year I made my costume from an old denim dress. I cut the dress in half making a top and skirt. I then fringed and frayed all the edges. I hot glued patches all over it and stitched yarn around each patch. I had to make my costume look like I was stuffed with straw so I used raffia on my costume. I hot clued raffia to hair combs and put them in my hair. I hot glued raffia to the inside of my gloves. I also glued raffia to elastic and put it around my ankles.
