Indecision ’08-ku

Posted on

We’ve gone through gypsy,

gothic princess and mummy.

I can’t take much more.


This is not about my 3 year old. She wants to be a cat. I will suggest an alternative (princess? poodle? Sushi roll?) and nope, a cat, a cat, WHAT? ARE YOU FREAKIN’ DEAF?! I SAID CAT!!! 

My 9 year old is going to be Samara Morgan from The Ring. She’s never seen The Ring and freaks herself out when she looks in the mirror, but if I can’t construct an Ood




Holy crap, that's creepy!

then Samara will do very well, thank you.






We’re talking about my 12 year old. “I don’t care,” she said breezily. “Something cute.” So, I bring home cute and it “doesn’t fit right” or “itches” or “uhm – is this blood?!” (Hey, when you shop 2nd hand for Halloween it just might be. DEAL!) Obviously my definition of cute (cheap) doesn’t jive with hers so we went looking together last night.  She wants this fairy contraption (Simplicity pattern 3632 I think) that includes wings as tall as her 5’4″ self, some gossamer fabric, and an overall aura of fey.

Kill me.



About Sassy

Absolutely average in every way.

  1. I’m sorry, but it’s funny. But only because I feel your pain. We haven’t delved into picking costumes yet, and I’m not super excited to. But holy crap on the samara… that is creepy. That movie scared the pants off me.

  2. Hehehe, cute ‘ku, and I do hope you find something soon that she loves. 12 is very 12. 🙂

  3. So funny…

    Last year we had a beautiful princess costume for our three year old, but she would not put it on her body instead she wore her Dora bathing suit out into the cold carrying an umbrella!! I can only imagine 12!!

    Cute post!

  4. Ah yes, you poor, poor woman. There is probably just no pleasing her…”an overall aura of fey” just cracked me up.

  5. yikes… good luck with that. :O
