Two Heads Are Better Than One
It's never too early to think about your child's future, especially if that future involves candy.
So as you can see from these preliminary designs I have here, Michelle, I will be playing the part of your average everyman this Halloween, and Ella will be the hideously malformed conjoined twin growing out of my back.
Now I know it looks complicated, honey, but it really isn't, I swear. The new 2012 Kiddy Adventure Pack does most of the work, see? She'll be perfectly comfortable up there on her height-adjustable, padded 5-point harness system and Soft-Tex covered seat. Building the rest of the costume around the multilevel height-adjustable back supporting frame and Thermotex pelvic and shoulder belts will probably be a little tricky, sure, but these are just rough sketches. With some more time, I'm sure I can incorporate the padded bottle holder and other compartments to really make this thing gruesome.
Well of course I'm not going to cover her in fake latex skin. At least not a lot of it, anyway. And Ella won't even really need makeup. I figure we give her a couple of red-frosted cupcakes before we go out and all that sugar smeared across her face will be look bloody enough. Oh! I wonder if she'd gnaw on a plush cat if we soaked it in fruit punch first? Hmmm. That's the kind of thing that could win us a few father and daughter costume contests, don't you think, honey?
