Last year I made Amelia one bad. ass. mutha. fucka. of a costume. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but she and I are well into BBC’s Doctor Who. Some might call it an unhealthy obsession, but some would be stupid and unenlightened. One of our favorite episodes entitled Blink featured these alien assassins who looked like those weeping angel statues in cemetaries. Very cool.
“That,” Amelia said pausing the Tivo on one particularly terrifying expression. “Is what I want to be for Halloween.” Yes, ladies and gentlemen, she wanted to be a statue – an alien assassin statue. Um.. rest in peace?
Long story short, I made that happen. BECAUSE I RULE!! It wasn’t that difficult – a grecian style dress, body paint, hair gel, colored hair spray, giant pieces of foam, a backpack, a 4 cans of spray paint, an electric meat cutter, a sewing machine, a gray turtleneck, a mask, and a sprig of faux ivy. She got lots of compliments.
This year she is sticking with her Doctor Who theme. I’m cool with that. I dig The Doctor. Except this year she wants to be this:
Odd, huh? How in the world am I supposed to make this?
