For halloween Max wanted to be a "Really realy scary blue monster with horns" so I got started making his costume a few weeks before the big day. Of course come time to try it on he hated the furry blue top and refused to even try it. I kept it on hand just in case. A few days before Halloween we went to a costume party and once again he didn't want to wear the blue costume, but said that he'd like to be a superhero. It's a good thing I have a trove of capes hanging around here! I quickly made a matching shirt for him and off we went to the party. He had a great time. It was at a local kids hair salon and they had different color hair spray, food, toys, and trick or treating in the shopping center. I was surprised at the amout of other kids dressed up as superheroes- at least 10 other preschoolers dressed up as mostly spiderman and batman. Max's was the only homemade costume out of all the kids. Come the real Halloween he didn't want to wear the superhero costume, either. Fortunately we still had the chicken costume from last year. He was happy clucking around in that for the night, and loved trick or treating. I didn't get very many pictures, but here are the ones I did remember to take.
