And a very tall hat.
The Cat picked green fur at the fabric store.
But it wound up being too heavy for her.
(I did not invent this amazing costume. I followed the excellent instructions here: http://www.chocolatehairvanillacare.com/2011/10/family-friday-homemade-hello-kitty.html
Amazing props to you, Rory! This thing was really neat. But just a bit too big for an almost 3 year old.)
|"It too heavy, Mama."|
So we fixed ears on a band
And gloves on her hands
Before we set out for candy land
And whoosh... They were gone.
The night air was cool
Sophie wore tulle
As we walked to the houses next door to our school
And somehow we lost the long ginger plait
But this was still the best Halloween yet
And his first costume parade.
