We appeared to have enough practice for the big day! But, all the treekids were snuffling and snotting and coughing and hacking and gagging and fevering. So, that afternoon we made a stop at the doctors' office. They are being treated with an antibiotic and the big decision had to be made for whether or not to go out for the evening of spooks. The recommendation was to have a good time, but wear masks to prevent spreading any germs. So, we had to hatch a plan or two!
The costumes changed some...
Bump was a cowboy - easy with a handkerchief to cover nose and mouth! Bud wanted to be a vampire bat. So, a cape and a mask covered with black fabric. We affixed a nose and several teeth (most fell off by the end... should have used hot glue!!). Blossom chose to dress in all white and add a dress. Her mask had a little yellow oval nose and whiskers. Her bowed headband had two white ears attached. A little bit of Hello Kitty went a long way for her!! Blossom dressed in all black. We added black fabric to the mask, and a pink nose and silver whiskers. I made little ears to bobby pin to her head and a long black sock tail. Rather simple costuming this year but functional for the purposes of keeping our germs to ourselves!!
