Halloblog

So, I finished Mary’s costume the other day mostly, but I had not yet put on the ears. So this afternoon I sewed on the ears, and then it was time for Mary to dress up. As we headed out, she was pretty happy with the outing:

We had to go get something to draw her whiskers with, as I own no cosmetics. So we did that, and then I drew on the whiskers. I was not totally successful–it looked, especially on the left side, more like war paint–but in my defense I point out that neither was she totally cooperative.

We went to Grandma’s house and said, “Trick or treat.” Then I realized that Mary doesn’t eat candy. But anyway we went and visited.

At this juncture I feel that I should point out that I made this costume. I knitted it. The whole thing–pants and sweater. Here’s another full-body picture so that you can appreciate this fully:

This isn’t a great photo, but here’s the costume from the back….including my favorite part, the tail.

After visiting Grandma we went to the grocery store. Mary loves the store but she was pretty tired by then so she made this face:

We had to wait in line a long time and she got a little bored….she had to read packages to keep occupied:

All in all, she had a good Halloween. I can’t believe I finished that sweater.
