I've been helping my husband with his "work" costume.
Every year at his work they do a fun Halloween trick or treating for the employees' kids. My kids love it, plus it takes the pressure off of Halloween night because they clean up in the candy department and are in sugar comas by the time Halloween night comes around.
Really though, I think they use the kids as an excuse because they always do a big group costume and have a costume contest at lunch.
Two years ago his department dressed up as "Christmas" for Halloween. Ugly Christmas sweaters and all. They gave out candy canes and hot chocolate to the trick or treaters.
Last year they were "ghostbusters." They get seriously into it... although they still have never won the contest :)
This year... in honor of the late, great Steve Jobs... they are dressing up as Apple Store employees (with a sarcastic twist.) Don't worry if you think that sounds a little nerdy... I've told him that I think it's nerdy way more than once. Cute and fun though.
So... what started as a seemingly simple costume of a t-shirt with some iron on vinyl turned into 27 t-shirts with iron-on vinyl. :)
... and my kids in their pajamas until noon! Yes! :)
They look good though and I'm excited to see everybody in them!
I love this kind of crafty project. I like it when my crafty side collides with something my husband actually NEEDS. I love knowing that I've helped him, even in the smallest ways.
