I, in turn, am throwing down the Gauntlet of Awesomosity, and challenging her (and I) to come up with a costume idea for every day until Hallowe'en. Kind of like an advent calendar for Hallowe'en. Can it be done? (Gosh, I sure hope so, seeing as I just threw that big old gauntlet.)
Costume Idea #2: Sushi. This costume comes to us from Aunt Dodi. Her nephew wanted to be a California roll for Hallowe'en, so she made him this sushi costume. Which leads me to two questions: (1) What first grader wants to dress up as sushi? - and, more importantly - (2) How awesome an aunt is this woman?! She is amazing. I love this costume, especially the spray-painted ping-pong ball roe and the styrofoam rice grains.
