Christmas in October

This masterpiece earned the coveted "Most Creative Costume" ribbon in 7th grade. It was brilliant, I must admit, and the cheapest costume I ever made. Method: get one huge box, wrap it in last year's left over gift wrap, cut hole for head, and top it off with a gigantic bow headband (of which I owned dozens.) It was a cute costume and everyone loved it, but that sucker was a flippin' nightmare to maneuver on the bus!

Oct. 14, 2009- I submitted this post to Tip Junkie's Talk to Me Tuesday feature. This week's installment, Halloween Show and Tell, highlights Halloween costumes and since this one is so simple to make, I thought I'd share it.
