I guess, as far as retail goes, it might be too late, especially since most stores already have their Christmas decorations out.
The past few years, I've made Grace's Halloween costume. When talking homemade, it's never too early to start thinking about Halloween costumes.
Last year, Grace wanted to be a pig.
Believe it or not, I took a monkey costume and transformed it into a pig costume (including a curly piggy tail).
The year before, Grace was a sheep.
My favorite costume, though, the one that convinced me to continue to make homemade Halloween costumes, was the Martha Stewart inspired chicken costume.
A costume I am almost tempted to make in adult size.
This year...well, this year we've only just begun thinking about what she wants to be. At the moment it is ranging from Alice (of Alice in Wonderland) to Robin (as in Batman and Robin). Thank goodness for pinterest.
Regardless of what she decides, I have a feeling I will need to channel my inner Tim Gunn and (hopefully) make it work, whatever she decides.
Have you started thinking about costumes, yet?
