Coral is afraid no one will recognize them
if they come to the party in costume. A discussion
revealed that they think everyone will pretend
not to recognize them, and then they won't know who
Jade suggested that they ask the donkeys
who probably won't be fooled -- Fran??
Anyway, her is the costumes for the girls,
which they made for themselves (mostly).
'quoise -- is the Jolly Green Giant in green leotards
and sweatshirt, with a "can" made from a large grocery bag
crayoned to look like green beens.
We still haven't figured out what to put on her head
Jade -- she was most insistent on something based on the song
"with her head beneath her arms". I had saved this piece of silvery foam
packing material which I cut and punched holes in.
Jade stitched it together with string to make a "T-Tunic"
large enough for her. Then she has a hood made form a
thrift store black shawl with a pumpkin mask. Then she has a "head"
made from a soccerball with a human mask over it,
and a huge axe made of cardboard. I don't know how she will
carry any candy she gets, but it doesn't seem to matter.
Coral -- she wanted to be a fairy and found a little girl's
ballet costume with a frilly tutu at the thrift store.
Wings were a problem (for me). 'quoise pointed out
that when Coral uses her crutches (not often) she sometimes
plays like flying. Ah-ha! We fastened some plastic window screen
to the crutches after spraypainting them purple, which flutters
around when she waves her crutches. She looks more like a
violet butterfly and is dangerous to anyone within six feet, but OK.
Me?? a sea monster. What else.
