Well, as I sit here.. in the complete dark (we ran out of candy! shocking!) I decided to put up pics.. they are not too great but I know some friends are waiting..
I tried to be creative..
see, Annaleah, wanted to be sailor moon..
If you don’t know her.. here she is
Well, since it is a Japanese thing.. there is was no way I was gonna find a costume here in the USA.. and online.. umm.. not for 80.00 and more.. no way.. so I tried to get creative..
after trying to figure this out for awhile I decided to just knit a hat.. seriously, I could think of no other way.. so here is a hat with pony tails and bangs.. and I glued a bunch of foam and wrapped it in gold ribbon.. anna said she needed wings too.. sigh..
there.. foam wings.. (please don’t mind the mess.)
and finally .. had to add some pink to her gloves..
Daddy had to work on her bow.. but ran into a problem.. we ran out of material.. when he left to get some more today.. the van broke down! so.. we had to use what we had..
here it is all put together.. now this is not the best pic.. but at least I had a happy girl..
Now I warned her that no one is gonna know who she is .. well surprisingly.. some of the treaters did! They even met a man dressed as Naruto (another anime character) who was happy to know someone would recognize him!
so there concludes our night.. I have just raided some delicious chocolates from anna’s stash (she is not a candy lover) and angel is bringing us home some chinese food on his moped.
I hope to catch up here soon.. there is alot that has been going on..
